    If by good, you mean inaccurate, then yes.

    The MacBook Air 11" weighs in at 2.38 lbs and the Surface 3 is 1.75 lbs, when the keyboard is connected then yes, it's heavier as it then weighs 2.4 lbs, but in a sense the slogan could work. 

    The Air weighs 1 lb. That's 75% lighter than the Surface. If you add the Surface keyboard, it's 140% lighter than the Surface.

    I think it's kind of sold as a hybrid, even the slogan suggests that;

     

    Surface Pro 3

    Das Tablet, das Ihren Laptop ersetzen kann.

    I know, but Crowley simply cited the Air, and in doing so, he deliberately obfuscated the situation. I chose to continue that obfuscation in his spirit.

    Odd that they’d use this tagline, then, as it’s lighter than neither. Do they think that by being a hybrid that two wrongs make a right?

    I didn't deliberately obfuscate anything, I directly quoted a Microsoft ad that I saw on the Tube yesterday.  Claiming prior knowledge about another person's intent makes you look very arrogant.  Stop being so provocative and people might like you more.

    Uhm, no, I think they say:

    Surface Pro 3 < MacBook Air + iPad Air [1.76 pounds (800g) is less than 2.38 pounds (1.08 kg) + 1 pound (469 g)] Complete MS logic here, doncha get it¿
