    I wouldn't. I'm uncomfortable enough with an Android smartphone, let alone having Microsoft's latest corporate attempts to spy on me!

    If I had the money, I'd gladly buy them all: Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950, Xbox One AND Surface Book. And a Win10 PC thrice as fast as the one I can afford. But considering my budget... I might get some cheaper Lumia phone and MAYBE a Surface Pro 4, though I'll probably end up with some cheaper W10 tablet.

    Re: QOTW: Which Windows 10 devices might you actually buy?

    My problem with buying windows 10 devices is that no-one is really making them with the specs I want. Show me a Windows 10 phone with a physical qwerty keyboard and I'll throw money at you. Produce a well-specced 8" 4:3 retina tablet (ideally with an AMD SoC) and you'll have my attention. But so far the phones are all "me too" touch smartphones and the tablets are all low spec, low res. Bay Trail clones of each other. Someone needs to innovate in the mass-market space....

    A Lumia 950 for £300 A future waterproof Microsoft Band potentially.. and maybe a Surface Book of some future spec.

    Meh, Windows 10 makes no difference to me at all, if I'm buying a device I'm buying it because I want a device. I need a tablet and a gaming laptop, and I'll be buying those regardless of what Windows comes on them, or if they have no Windows at all.

    A laptop I guess? My laptop could use an upgrade before whatever comes after Windows 10. I still don't feel like I need a tablet based on any OS. And I am not willing to compromise on microSD/removable battery on mobile phone for as long as I have the choice. I do see the appeal of the Surface, but I may not -need- it in the near future.

    I would get the Surface Book if only they'd release it outside of America...

    Like wise, and price is a big thing.

    The 950xl will roughly be £600, the 640xl is only £160 and will get Windows 10. £400+ difference for two devices that do 90% of things the same.

    Also the surface pro's are amazing ,but £600 (inc keyboard), you can get devices from HP for £300 with lower specs, but again will do 90% of what the more expensive models do.

    No doubt the products shown are amazing, beautiful and powerful, but are they too expensive?

    As i am not going to be (probably ever) buying anything Apple and there is nothing desirable Android wise then my next computer/tablet/phone will be running Windows.
    I would like a 950XL though my 640XL is going just fine. The Surface book is lovely but probably to expensive so i may go for a XPS 13 and a small 8" windows tablet.
    For sure though, Windows has become (hardware wise) desirable again.

    Waiting on an 950XL to come out. My 1520 has a cracked screen and I've been waiting for a replacement for it for a while.

    Surface book looked interesting as well as 950.

    However I'm still waiting to see the Blackberry Priv before deciding anything.

    Re: QOTW: Which Windows 10 devices might you actually buy?

    New gaming desktop next year is thoroughly needed (see current spec!). Although I won't be forking over actual money for Win 10 thanks to the free upgrade.

    With a proper gaming PC in hand, I'll probably trade down from the Razer Blade I currently have, to something with less power and more battery life (Surface Pro 4 or XPS13 are contenders). I thought the Surface Book would be a sure fire purchase, but the thickness of it in folded form (thanks to that fancy hinge) plus the astronomical price tag, have put me off.

    I'm Android through-and-through for mobile, but for a work phone I would totally consider a Windows 10 Phone.

    XBox One - maybe at the next round of price drops? Still not enough killer games for me to warrant investing in the platform, imo...
