According to TechCrunch the MacBook Air is inferior to the Surface Pro

So according to the article in this link : http://techcrunch.com/2013/01/23/haters-gonna-hate-2/ the MacBook Air is simply something to use iPhoto and do browsing on. Now I'm sorry, while I wouldn't say it has anywhere near the power of the MacBook Pro or iMac, the Surface Pro is certainly in no way superior. Battery life on the Surface Pro is no where near as good as the Air and lets face it, Windows isn't at the same level as OS X for great software.

What do you think about this ? If you had a choice between the Surface Pro and MacBook Air which would you buy ?
