No reason. But then, that was my recommendation a week ago.
Welllllll...@kumabjorn said I take a week to change my mind...
Just one man's opinion, but even with:
1) Inferior touch/pen action
2) lack of TB3
3) lack of OLED
Surface will continue to rule in its segment until/unless IOS can be a substitute for x86, iPads have kickstands and mouse capability. Clearly they keep making 64/128GB/4GB machines for price leadership - and as long as people keep buying them it appears they are sufficient for their needs, whether as secondary device or singular computer used to run a professional practice, eh @Bronsky ?
The best way to keep from noticing how inferior the user experience on Surface devices are: don't use/buy an iPad! Ironically it may be Apple's stubbornness (to upgrade the iPad functionality) that's giving Surface devices their leases on life.
Precisely my point.
My feeling exactly - if Apple added mouse support to the iPad, it would be a death sentence for Surface, especially with MS continuing to try to deprecate full Office for the UWP versions.
In some ways it's good that both MS and Apple are so damn stubborn, it gives each of them lanes to run in...
So, MS is sending out the ground troops to tamp down expectations for the October 2 snooze-fest...
Thurrott - Expectations for Microsoft’s Upcoming ‘Hardware’ Event
That was quick! Looks like the link is pulled?
Your link isn't working - at least not for me.
Sorry folks - it won't work - came from his premium site. Bottom line, processors only, maybe USB-C ports, nothing else...
Here's Mary Jo Foley's take, which Paul cribbed from anyway...
For the sake of those journalists in attendance I hope it's not a two hour infomercial of mostly recycled "productivity" pablum with just a few bits of actual hardware news.
I'm thinking back to IFA 2015 when everyone was excited for Microsoft's big keynote and all we got was a rehash of Windows 10, Edge, Cortana and some shoutouts for OEM devices that had already been showcased in their own presentations earlier in the week. Or maybe we'll hit the excitement level of Build 2015 when instead of a hoped-for mobile announcement we were treated to our second or third presentation of Continuum courtesy of Bryan Roper.
If Brad and MJ were looking to dampen my expectations they have succeeded.
