I’m a sucker for unique and interesting tech devices, and not just those from Apple, either. I can’t afford to own them all, but I do try as many as I can and keep the ones that really stand out. This is how I ended up with a Surface Go a couple of years ago (it seemed like a good idea at the time). I ultimately decided to keep it, but recently returned the follow up Surface Go 2 because it didn’t stand out enough to justify the higher price.
Sometimes these experiments are a hit and other times not so much. So far, my current test drive of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is trending toward the hit column.
Apple loves to tell us that the iPad is a computer and Microsoft loves to make fun of them for it. At least they are both reliable. Microsoft has ribbed Apple in commercials before, but this Christmas season brings a fresh dig in the form of an ad for the Microsoft Surface Go. Check it out here, or below:
I may be the editor for a site that got its start exclusively covering the iPad, but I am also a lifelong Windows user. It is the only platform I can use for work, because all of the software in my field of expertise is Windows-based. The only path I have to using a Mac at work is via virtual machines, and that just isn’t attractive to me. That isn’t the only reason, though. I have always used Microsoft Windows, going back to my student days. That familiarity is hard to shake, especially when I’ve never been faced with a convincing reason to leave the platform for unfamiliar waters.
