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.

Member since:

Anything less than 17" is too little, I want enough power from the thing to be able to game comfortably on it [...] But alas, tastes are an individual thing, and I've always found practicality much more important to me than aesthetics.

Practicality of something too big to carry around in a shoulder bag most of the time, practicality of GAMING? (seriously?, any laptop you can buy new now will play vast majority of games just fine; if at most, say, 1% of available titles determines you purchase, that doesn't seem very practical)

Just saying, practicality is also not an absolute...
