According to recent reports, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 somewhat goes alongside the Apple counterpart but in other ways could hold the advantage. For starters, it is said that it will be a mix of a tablet and laptop, made for 4K display and most importantly, dons the new Intel Kaby Lake processors. More than that, it will have a screen with a kickstand, a keyboard base and Windows 10 OS, as well as a Surface Pen Stylus since it belongs to the Surface Pro line.

Other reports point to the potential of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 to have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels or 3840 x 2560 pixels.

Rumor has it as well that the latest version of the Surface Pen could be bestowed upon this particular hardware.

Gauging how the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 stands as of the moment - though all are still rumors - the chances of if going up against the MacBook Pro 2016 is still quite high. Looking back at Microsoft's history, the company has a way of making unique approaches to their devices, and with such awesome feats on the line, the contest is expected to be a close call by next year. The lighter design of Apple's PC may be a plus-factor, though the Surface Pro's rumored specs could do the trick.
