It appears that Apple’s disappointing (for some) new Macbook Pro is benefiting Microsoft. In a blog post, Microsoft officially announced that November was the month which they received the most sales for Surface; not just in the US, but worldwide as well. In the US, the tech giant claims that the the “Best Buy-exclusive Surface bundle sold out on the first day.” In the UK, the company had the “best single week for Surface ever,” as confirmed by them. The Surface was not the only Microsoft hardware that sold out last month. The company also happily announced that the Surface Pen “became the best seller in PC Accessories on Amazon.com for over 12 hours.”
Another thing Microsoft affirmed is that a huge amount of MacBook users are switching to the Surface than ever before. The company obtained this data through their trade-in program stating, “Our trade-in program for MacBooks was our best ever.” Microsoft blames this defections in the disappointment Apple brought with the new MacBook Pro among professionals.
Apple’s haters, don’t get your hopes up and start thinking that Apple is doomed now that a couple of Mac users are switching to the Surface. Despite being so much hated, it has been reported that the new MacBook Pro is actually selling better than any other MacBook before.
