Why Microsoft Calls Apple's New MacBook Pro A "Disappointment"
Aside from the reason that the new MacBook Pro caused tons of issues over the last few weeks, Microsoft goes on to say that Mac customers were disappointed by Apple's new MacBook Pro. Customers were then enticed by Surface innovations.
Some of the other reasons for disappointments were battery life concerns, graphic problems and lacked-I/O ports.

The Real Score Between The Rivalry
Since the issuance of Microsoft's statement about its Surface sales, the company hasn't declared its actual sales yet. It is unclear on what metric or basis did Microsoft use for the latter to call Apple's new MacBook Pro a "disappointment.'
In fact in Fortune's report, it further elaborates that last month Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said "the MacBook Pro had secured more sales through the Apple online retailstore than any of the company's other professional-focused notebooks."
Furthermore a research from Slice Intelligence also said that MacBook Pro "had already outsold all of its competitors." It even had higher rate, nearly four times the number of sales, than that of Microsoft's Surface Book, its closest competitor.
Indeed Microsoft's statement seems to be unclear on its basis. Does this mean that Microsoft is just making things up?
