12" Macbook only comes with a Core M CPU and 8GB Ram max, the Surface Pro is much more capable than that, basically on Macbook Pro levels.

Depends on the exact model. The xps has an "i7" but it's pretty much just a core m with a few little extras.

Remember, this is a fanless design so thermal throttling will be insane, just like on the macbook and the xps13.

Neither the Surface Pro i7 nor the XPS13 (not talking about the 1 in 2 XPS13) are fanless. Its the same class as the Macbook Pro 13 but Kaby Lake as opposed to Skylake allows for a fanless i5 Surface Pro.
