Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

I personally don't find anything fantastic about it. Anything less than 17" is too little, I want enough power from the thing to be able to game comfortably on it, and I don't want to spend several grands on it. But alas, tastes are an individual thing, and I've always found practicality much more important to me than aesthetics.

Anyways, off-topic.


Depends on what you want - if I want power I have a desktop for that but if I want portability then I've always got my X1 Carbon. Both of them are running a clean 'virgin' install of Windows 7 resulting in a very fast and reliable experience.
