Which Costs More?

Pricing for the iPad Pro starts at about $800 for the 32-GB model with Wi-Fi, goes up to about $950 for the 128-GB model with Wi-Fi, and costs about $1,080 for the 128-GB model with Wi-Fi and cellular capabilities. There is no 32-GB cellular model of the iPad Pro.

Surface Pro 3 pricing ranges from about $800 for a 64-GB model running an Intel Core i3 processor, $900 for a 128-GB model with Intel's Core i5 processor, $1,400 for a 256-GB Intel Core i7, $1,150 for a 256-GB model running Intel Core i5, and at the high end, an $1,800 model running the Intel Core i7. All Surface Pro 3 models include Microsoft's stylus, the Surface Pen, but do not support cellular wireless networks. The best comparison is between the iPad Pro's top, 128-GB, $1,080 model and a similarly priced Surface Pro 3 that costs $1,150 running Intel Core i5 with 256 GB.

Microsoft delivers considerably more storage and also ships with the Surface Pen. Apple sells its new stylus, the Apple Pencil, for about $100. But if you want a cellular data plan with your Surface Pro 3, plan on spending an extra $100 for the capability.

So how does the Intel fourth-generation Core i5 compare to Apple's A9X third-generation chip? Read on.
