    Recommend 13.3-15.6" budget laptop for spouse

    I'd get the Dell XPS 13 and call it a day. Best ultrabook laptop on the market.

    Surface Pro 4

    How'd you score it for $939 OTD?

    Surface Pro 4

    Have you seen and felt it in person? I saw it at the MSFT Store and was not impressed at all with the Canvas Z. The whole detached BT keyboard idea seems incomplete. The hinge or stand mechanism doesn't feel as solid. The build quality, feel, and engineering is way behind the Surface Pro 4...

    Surface Pro 4

    Anyone get their core m3 SP4's yet? Thoughts on performance and battery life would be appreciated!!!

    Surface Pro 4

    Honestly I'd avoid the Surface 3 (4/128). I have one and thought I'd get it for just casual browsing (multiple tabs, youtube, word, onenote) however it really struggles with flash heavy webpages. That's even without multiple apps or tabs open. I'll notice that it'll be slow in loading sites...

    Surface Pro 4

    Yeah, I don't think I'll have any issues with 4/128gb. The reasons I'd want the SP4 are that hopefully battery life, heat, noise will all be improved. I heard the SP3 had some throttling issues. That and other things like the pen attachment and other small details attract me to the SP4 moreso...

    Surface Pro 4

    I was planning to get an SP4 (8/256) but just scored a deal on an SP3. Got the 4/128gb for $599 brand new. I plan on getting the new type cover and maybe the new pen. Iunno, what do you guys think? Keep the discounted SP3 or go for the newer SP4. I would be fine with just 4/128gb since it's...

    I'm giving in, shopping for my first laptop

    I'd look into the new Dell XPS15 with Skylake. Looks to have everything you want in a nice package.

    What the hell is a Surface Note...?

    Surface Pro 4

    IMO, it's a good successor to the SP3. The SP3 was the first Surface Pro that you could say was a premium product that hit the check box on most users list. They didn't have to reinvent the wheel on the SP4, they just had to tweak the SP3 and fix/update what needed to be fixed. Do I think...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    To those running with adapters, I have a videocard which only has dual link DVI. I'd like to run it straight to the display port. Which adapters are you guys using that support 3440x1440 @60hz?

    Would you exchange a rmbp for this noise?

    I would. It's $2600 after all and it would be an easy exchange at Apple. Seems like the Laptopmag review complained of a noisy fan and heat as well so it might be a widespread issue.

    Very excited about Surface Pro 2

    If you've seen any of the commercials or the way MSFT advertises Surface, you'd realize that the Touch/Type Covers are a huge part of the experience. The Surface isn't being sold as a tablet. It's being sold and marketed as a tablet/laptop convertible device. So even they are pushing the...

    Very excited about Surface Pro 2

    Keep in mind that compared to iOS that Windows RT 8.1 still takes up a huge chunk, in the end you'll have around 16gbs of usable space. I think the biggest mistake MSFT is making is not including a touch cover with the devices. Surface is going to face an uphill battle and adding expensive...
