The rumours surrounding this week's product refreshes from Apple and Microsoft may have spoiled the surprise, but that doesn't detract from the lure of the new MacBook Pro and the innovative Surface Studio.
While pricing is high enough to make the eyes water, both systems are beautifully constructed and serve as a showcase of what the modern computing experience can offer in terms of design and implementation. What's perhaps most interesting, however, is that each system is attempting to introduce a new means of interaction to their respective customers.
Apple has revamped its popular MacBook Pro with the addition of the Touch Bar, while Microsoft has left us intrigued with a Surface Dial that's compatible with Surface Studio, Surface Book or Surface Pro 4. We're itching to get our hands on both to see how useful either input method can be, but these are early days and as so much will depend on software support, we're going to canvas early opinion by asking: Apple Touch Bar or Microsoft Surface Dial?
Check out the video overviews below, and taking budget out of the equation completely, let us know which of the two you believe would be most useful during your regular workflow.
