quote: And the only reason why I even mentioned the 11.6" MBA was its size/weight relative to the Surface Pro (10.6", 2 pounds).
quote: we're not really comparing OSes here; it's more of a usefulness/bang for your buck thing.
quote: In two years...The Toshiba will be worth 20%
quote: It was just the first laptop to pop into my head
quote: Again, you are letting emotions and STRONG personal opinons cloud your judgement when it comes to talking about any product that YOU don't personally like.
quote: Reclaimer, always entertaining, always **THINKING** he's right :-)
quote: Excuse me but I have extensive knowledge on all ecosystems.
quote: You've argued that OS X has iOS style application installation restrictions
quote: That said, I can only conclude that Justin Beiber represents the height of quality for you. After all, he is the most popular singer in the world right now, clearly making him "the best".
quote: How is OS X a walled garden? You can buy and install applications straight from any developer. You can install applications from third party storefronts like Steam. You can easily run other operating systems in a VM. If you're so inclined you get loads of low-level OS control via the command line.
quote: If everyone was still locked away in the OSX walled garden, I think iMac sales would be quite different....The Mac App Store uses the exact same walled garden platform as the iOS one Takin, and you know this. What are you trying to pull here? Not just anyone can write apps for OSX and sell them, as is the case with Windows.
quote: I had a Lian Li for three years
quote: Its amazing, you fail at knowing Macs or Linux and you can't even get your PC parts correct...
quote: Someone who will ALWAYS fall back in any argument to the "expensive and profitable is always more better" talking point
quote: You know I saw that crap you pulled with making a new account and pretending to not be you just to slam me. And now this?
quote: Also you don't seem to understand that, obviously, Lian Li isn't a budget value proposition. Comparing their cases to a freaking $50 one is missing the point.Lian Li is pretty much the Apple of cases. And the irony of your argument here is amazing.
quote: The performance absolutely matches the price tag, but the materials and overall build quality don't quite line up. At $149 it would be much easier to recommend.
quote: nearly a grand for what is essentially a toy.
quote: It needs serious de-bloating if they want to remain relevant.
quote: Adding to the above, I'd like to say that my wife and I have ALL of our personal data backed up on SpiderOak (secure cloud storage).
quote: This is not for Enterprise. Enterprise exclusively uses legacy applications and legacy UI and good luck doing that on 10" 1080P screen even with Windows 8 scaling at max 150%.
quote: Surface is a major letdown for me.
quote: expandable storage via an SDXC slot; and the Surface Pro also features a USB 3.0 port.
quote: So the user is losing 45GB of storage space due to formatting/OS/pre-installed apps
quote: you will be able to get some of that free space back by "creating a backup bootable USB and deleting the recovery partition."
