In the past few years, had been standing behind the Microsoft PC hardware in the outstanding achievements, they not only come up with “ &rdquo SurfaceBook, God of the shaft; also released the first integrated desktop PC Studio, but Apple has finally released after a lapse of four years, more new MacBook. The two products are exquisite degree full of virtue are many, but please remember when you buy buy buy, Microsoft and apple these products bright case, are in fact outdated technology.
From the external point of view, these products really cool anomalies, top of the material in the hands of designers turned into works of art, from the shaft to the texture embodies a strong sense of quality. From industrial design and aesthetic point of view, Microsoft and Apple's new products are able to get a high score. Take them with the lower prices of similar products together, will be able to compete immediately, so Microsoft and apple in the pricing is also confident.

However, if you are a technology blind, don't be fooled by their cool appearance, because they are equipped with the technology is outdated. These new products superior looks in good faith, but in fact, some of the equipment already in the performance of its beyond, and competitive products have many functions for the future.
For example, a new version of Microsoft Surface Book using Intel Skylake processor and NVIDIA Maxwell architecture GeForce GTX 9 series based on GPU. But the fact that Intel has entered the era of Lake chip Kaby, and NVIDIA's architecture is replaced by Pascal, GeForceGTX GPU also began to enter the 10 series. SurfacePro is already lagging behind in performance.

The new Studio Surface also made the same problem, its processor is still using the GPU, Maxwell is still the Skylake architecture. At the same time, the design is quite innovative and it does not even have lightning interface, which is bound to make the designers often need a lot of transmission data is a headache. In addition, the storage system is still using the hybrid hard old, so high price to sell Microsoft really is not kind.
Although apple MacBook Pro make snap upgrade, but still with the old section of the Skylake chip. Although Apple has joined the TouchBar, but a similar attempt in fact, a few years ago, but unfortunately, the results are not satisfactory.
Of course, for many people this “ the new wine in old bottles of ” the behavior does not matter, good is the first. However, due to the use of the old parts, so the future of its upgrade cycle will inevitably be shortened. So when you are ready to start, please think about it in advance, this guy's hardware configuration may soon be eliminated.
