    All this proves is Apple has a strong following of people with sufficient disposable income to buy anything Apple makes regardless if it makes any sense for them or not. The Apple 'mixed bag of nuts & bolts' would sell millions.

    APPLES OUTSOLD ORANGES - 2015

    About 40 pounds of apples were consumed by Americans in the last year.
    At 1/3 pound each, that is 120 apples per person.

    About 25 pounds of oranges were consumed.
    At 1/4 pound each, that is about 100 oranges per person.

    Both are good fruit. They differ in benefit, look, feel, and taste.

    Plus, there's the status of having Apple's latest and greatest - that's PRICELESS!

    All these factors combined was why I wasn't surprised.

    To look at it from another angle, I think that is outstanding performance by MS.

    Imagine if they had made a largely bug free device.

    The future though is clouded/crowded with Surface clones. Sales numbers will be difficult to separate or fathom.

    I Agree, I would still have a Surface Book, and not the iPad Pro I am writing this on.....
