    Something critical to me in a laptop is robustness. I always prod them in the back of the screen to see if there's any artefact on the display from it. If they're going to go down the route of "thinness at the expense of all else" like with flagship mobiles, I'm just not interested. I don't want a laptop sitting in my bike's box, bouncing around and ending up with more crack than the Irish.

    My laptop recently took a flying trip down a whole storey after it incurred my displeasure. It works just fine... If it tries that again, it'll be concrete shoes time. Or it'll become a clay pigeon.

    Another ARM-based Windows device - but will it perform better than the underwhelming MS Surface Pro X?

    It is unrealistically smart, convenient format, lightweight, the stylus works everywhere, after a terrible stylus on an iPad about ... it was a fairy tale .. colors and image quality. speaker, android on board which is more logical than iOS.

    But the drawback because of which I handed over the tablet for 3 days of use ... a strip on the display. it was monstrously insulting to give the tablet that I liked so much, but this strip was insanely annoying. because it was visible in the "night mode" and in fact wherever there is gray and any dark colors. I'm sitting now without a tablet ... there was a cover and glass. how to buy ..
