    would love to see a "quick as possible" discussing windows server activations on ebay and the purchase of cals. how your actually work and why ebay allows people to sell these if they arent actually legal. They work, I know this, but I doubt they're legal and dont really understand how the average jo is supposed to know if they buy a system with, for example "Windows 10 Pro" successfully activated that it is not a legit copy.

    I switched from surface pro 3 to Google pixel book. I can tell you after more than a year of usage, I will not go back to Windows Eco system. Also most of the Android apps world very well, Microsoft word, Excel along with Google docs, sheets, slides I have a host of choices. With 8Gb Ram and cloud back your I find 128 GB shortage more than sufficient. Now the Linux also works with pixel book... I love the pixel book and I am happy with what it is offering and it is absolutely great

    Not to be that guy but the pen lag/trailing/whatever you want to call it may be intentional in some apps. Most artists put a delay on pens in programs like photoshop or Sai or whatever else you use because it smooths out the stroke

  • Steven Hiller

    Chrome OS is amazing. I have yet to find anything other than Steam that I can't do on it, but then again why would I want steam on a laptop in the first place, unless I'm dropping thousands on a gaming laptop? My favorite part is just how fast it is. I have a $500 Samsung Chromebook Plus that I got for $300 that literally can shut all the way down and boot up in 10 seconds.

    • Steven Hiller
      Steven Hiller 2 months ago

      The issue is when people are talking about specs, I agree, Google has no business asking for thousands for these things. A Chromebook doesn't need a Core i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM. When optimized correctly it should be able to operate perfectly on an Intel Celeron or M3 and 4gb of RAM. We don't need those high specs because there should be nothing on a Chromebook pushing it that far. In fact there should be nothing on a Windows laptop pushing it that hard except for the windows operating system and perhaps Steam and Photoshop.

  • Dr. Leonard Hofstadter SAVAGE FAM

    I agree Linus, a $1000 for 128GB of storage. Hell no! For me, I buy laptops with quad cores. 1TB hard drive, features that are my preferences. I just brought a 3TB External hard drive, 3 days ago. For my laptop, I love that you buy things like that. It's what I need, I don't like cramming things on my laptop hard drive. But I still use my laptop hard drive, little bit.

    Google should price thier products better and decide what to do with the Chrome OS.
    Also, the end was great.
    Google never too Desktop and Laptops seriously. They are paying now. The ecosystem is not there.
    Apple has it and they are shining their big teeth on everyone.
    Microsoft gave up. Now Google is quickly trying to bring Chrome OS back to life. They have done pretty terific things, put it is looking a pretty uphill climb with Fuschia launching around 2022.

  • Fullmental

    I've been extremely disappointed with the Apple and Google tablets, and the surface pro is simply too expensive. Lack of mouse and storage support forced me to give my iPad pro to my parents, and I returned my pixel book because it just couldn't do enough.
    Believe it or not, I wound up getting a Lenovo Miix tablet with an 8th gen i7, full windows 10, and an *included* stylus pen and detachable keyboard for like $800. Aside from relatively poor battery life (well, it's windows...), it's been better in almost every other aspect for day to day use.
    When are Android and iOS devices going to seriously step up their game?

    Yogas are great too, my Yoga 720 15" serves me great for school, it's both powerful enough to run matlab, solidworks and whatever I need, (has an i7 and a gtx 1050) and rather slim, frankly it has no compromises in terms of being a laptop and being a tablet, I use OneNote for all my notebooks and it's great :) only downside is there's no magnet for the pen, maybe the newer models do have that.
    Also it's cheaper than a surface haha
