It's not about hardware or software anymore. The battle is currently a land grab to get as many users as possible on Azure. They are going directly against AWS and Google. Get your customers deeply embedded with TB or PB of data safely tucked away in your data centres and they won't go anywhere. Interestingly Apple doesn't even feature here, but maybe with the push for more services Apple will start to play catch up.

I'm actually curious as to why Microsoft is pushing the Surface line. Obviously they want adoption of their OS and services to funnel people to Azure, so I'm wondering if building the industry's best hardware (whether true or not) is an attempt to induce a halo effect.
