Display

While both notebooks in our comparison actually come with choices between two sizes, we'll just be looking at the smaller, 13-inch versions in this comparison.

The latest MacBook Pro features a 13.3-inch display with Apple's vibrant Retina technology, strong resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 and brightness of up to 500 nits. Like all Apple notebooks, the display is not a touch screen.

By contrast, the Surface Laptop 3 does feature a touch screen, and it's also a bit larger at 13.5 inches. Microsoft offers vibrancy in its display technology, PixelSense, as well--though resolution is a bit below the MacBook Pro at 2,256 x 1,504. Microsoft doesn't disclose the brightness rating for the Surface Laptop 3 display, but tests have found brightness reaching about 400 nits--make it not as bright as the MacBook Pro display.
