    Robert_Wyatt scribbled on a napkin:
    Needed the new .11ax chipset they have and they're the cheapest laptop out there.

    Say what you will about the actual longevity if the Macbook butterfly keys........ I've really gotten used to them and how firm they feel. The Surface Laptop 3's keys feel a bit muddy in comparison but I'm sure I'd get used to it.

    13 inch model (15 inch is AMD chipset so no .11ax, business store only 15 inch Intel was too expensive for what I'm doing.) The alcantara feels good but given that my two year old Macbook's metal case is showing wear from use I wonder how well that alcantara holds up over constant use.

    BIGGEST PET PEEVE - The MacBook's trackpad is a button. The entire thing. I use my thumb alot while hands are on the keyboard so I use the very top of the trackpad to click on things. Can't do that on the Surface Laptop 3.

    Travel on the trackpad for the Mac is lower/quicker, better tactile feedback, and the actual surface feel of the Mac trackpad is better. Apple's trackpad feels like smooth glass/metal. MS' just feels like plastic and feels gunky in comparison and requires more effort to press for a click.

    So.... Apple is still the king of track pads.

    My work around at the moment is to use the "touch" function where you just tap on the trackpad with a single finger for left click, two fingers for right. Seems to get the job done.
