Above you can see the CPU options and the CineBench and GeekBenck test scores for both laptops, which
gives an idea about what kind of performance difference you may experience between the
Apple MacBook Air M2 2022 and Microsoft Surface Pro 9.
GPU is as critical as the CPU for graphic heavy applications and the table above gives a picture of how
the two GPU compares.
FLOPS is a measure of a GPU's performance based on the number of floating-point arithmetic calculations
that the processor can perform within a second.
Apple MacBook Air M2 2022 has a FLOPS value of 3 TFLOPS whereas the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 has a FLOPS value of 1.41 TFLOPS. If graphical performance of the laptop is important for your use type, the Apple MacBook Air M2 2022 may be the better choice between these two setups.
laptops, the MacBook Air M2 2022 and the Surface Pro 9, come with similar RAM capacities of 8 GB
, providing comparable performance in memory-intensive tasks.
In addition to RAM capacity, the type of RAM can significantly impact performance, with newer RAM types
often offering higher speeds compared to others. Therefore, selecting RAM types with the latest DDR
number can be a suitable choice based on your requirements.

If your budget allows, we recommend opting for the largest possible disk size, considering the potential
increase in storage capacity needs in the future. However, please keep in mind the question 'What will the
laptop be used for?' when making this decision.
Of course, you can later upgrade the hard disk capacity by getting a larger disk. However, if your laptop
has only one disk slot, it may not be as straightforward as a RAM upgrade, where you simply add or replace a
module, as moving or cloning files to a new disk may be necessary.
