    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Oh, fu ... dge.

    Cat, you make an irritatinly convincing case, dammit. :D

    Still, after trying the SP4, I'll either keep it, or be a bit further towards these becomin more mainstream.

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    I had a Samsung 10.1 Tab2, but it died. Right now, Sammy 7", I think Tab 4. Great portability but a bit too small. Also, browsing some complex sites is like running a footrace in 2 foot deep snow...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    @Jonj

    For some of my needs, a tablet is probably ideal. I did even think of a 10" tablet. But it's just a bit too limiting, especially typing longer things on an on-screen KB.

    This is part of...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    The extra bitscertainly include the KB, but also docking station for port ecpansion, etc. I think there might have been an external optical drive, but my memory may be faulty there.

    I'm not in a...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Another wrinkle has occurred - a friend has a barely used MS Surface Pro, which I think, is a Pro 4, and various add-ons. We haven't got as far as price and it isn't what I was intending, but I...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Interesting. It was partly the i7 and 4k that attracted me. And 16GB. It put me in the £1600-1700-ish range.

    Gotta go out now, but you've made me think about that.

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Nobody seems very keen on the Dell XPS13 (the new one) but nobody's said why? Is it the machine, or bad experiences with Dell?

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    I do, yeah. I helped set up a mwchine one friend sold to another, who then decided it wssn't needed and I ended up with it at a good price. A Dell 5000-series Inspiron, 6200U. 8GB, 1TB HD, and for...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    I like the idea of a de-Cortana'd (etc) version, but if I get W10 it'll only be because my chosen laptop comes with it, and because I have a few programs that don't seem to like Linux, like my...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Thanks, Cat. Plenty to think about there.

    Whether its rational or not, I don't see me buying anything Huawei now or in the short/medium term, but that still leaves a range of options.

    I'm...

    Re: Which ultra-portable?

    Not huge amounts of typing, Kal. It's a general usage machine and there will be some typing, but nowhere near as much as would have been in the past. I'd probably add the 1-user lifetime basic Office...

    Which ultra-portable?

    I'm thinking about completely changing my archaic home computing, to :-

    1) NAS
    2) Desktop replacement laptop (I have an option available here)
    3) One tower PC driving old hardware & software
    4)...
