  1. Good advice except that I burned those devices down, they have no cooling fans and I use them intensively basically they either go at base clock to lower temperature or go into shock protection, they are ok for light office use not as a workstation.

  2. I love that the iPad is not part of this review. It’s not a laptop. No matter what apple tells you. I love my iPad Pro but I wish it had mouse support. ios is way to limited and too phone-like.

  3. Unnecessary opening by damaging a laptop that might actually still be useful. I have owned a Surface Pro 3 since 2015 and I hardly use most of its Tablet features. My next purchase is likely gonna be a Surface Laptop or like the Surface book, just because its more powerful and ergonomically comfortable to use.
