What if Apple made a Surface Book?

Apple's modern hardware has long been a staple of design colleges and studios around the world. At WWDC17, Apple announced iOS 11, which incorporates several features seen on macOS, brining the company's mobile and desktop operating systems closer than ever. The latest iPad Pro may not run Apple's full-fat OS but file sharing is easier than ever, and Adobe Creative Cloud offers 'light' versions or equivalents of its most popular design software. Add to that quick and easy synchronisation with your desktop design apps, and the iPad Pro is closer to a laptop replacement than ever.

But it's still not enough for some, who want the ability to use full versions of their desktop creative software on the move. That's where the Microsoft Surface Book, and other convertible and hybrid Windows 10 laptops, score heavily.
