    Sell Apple stock and buy AMD and Microsoft stock. Done. (Note: This is not intended as professional investment advice. Trade at your own plight and peril.)

    OK guys, here's the list of new threads, hope to see you there!

    Surface Pro 7 (Win10, Intel) - familiar design
    Surface Pro X (Win10, ARM) - way thinner, with more Snapdragon
    Surface Neo (Win10X, Intel) - smaller and significantly more foldable
    Surface Duo (Android, ARM) - even smaller, equally foldable, and phoneable!

    Well according to Qualcomm, OEMs have the choice of implementing it.

    (Anandtech)
    "When I questioned Qualcomm if something like Thunderbolt 3 was possible, they said that they don’t see why it wouldn’t be if an OEM wanted to make that configuration."

    Unfortunately, it's MS here we're talking about. :p

    None! :D Be my guest, it only takes a second to start a thread.

    Protip: when you first make the post, CTRL-V inserts any picture on your clipboard inline, no separate uploading required. When editing the post later that still works, but only after you hit the "more options" button.

    So I guess the takeaways are:

    1. MS wins the tech demo season 2020 hand down.
    2. The Wintel marriage is in legal separation and she's already seeing other people :)
    3. They have really made a commitment to pen and touch tech, but now they need to step up their game with the OS and apps to match.
    4. They are better at keeping secrets and strategically leaking than I thought. The surface android phone came out of left field
    5. The creation of the MS launcher and my phone companion makes a lot more sense now- But they need to get serious about their Android office apps.
