He's asking whether that battery life is possible when WinPro is used.
June 15 release, six weeks to go folks!
I saw someone releasing a double sided e-ink device specific for music sheets. $1 600 though, ouch.
Microsoft is starting preorders for the Surface Laptop today, priced starting at $999 for the Core i5 version with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage.
I think it's interesting. Not my thing, but interesting.
Oh yeah, that's a giant waste of money. I've been following that thing and it's a huge step down from just using a big tablet. We've moved beyond the read two pages then turn paradigm. It's not pages of music anymore. My tablet allows me to turn half pages or scroll vertically. I can annotate in color (I'm not missing my highlighted repeat signs and I do my bowings in blue). I don't need to carry a stand light because my music is backlit.
And it's funny watching commenters who think this is a brand new thing. Digital sheet music! That's so innovative! Why hasn't anyone done this before? Uhhh.......
I understand - but if you upgrade to Win10 Pro, do you lose the 14.5hr battery life and REAL MacBook-like close to sleep and open to wake?
After not quite two hours: Oh well...
Cube came out with something very similar just a few weeks ago--down to the stylus without a 360 hinge thing. A rather odd feature.
Depends on what you load....
Load Chrome and Norton on it or a ton of legacy software probably not - at least until RS3 comes out so you can throttle misbehaving software...
Le sigh. Seriously, no way to draw on that thing other than to hover your arm above the keyboard? Fail. A better hinge that could fold back yoga style would have made the device more useful, not less. Everything it currently does it would still do. But it would also let all those young creators actually draw. Y'know, like they do in school. Every day.
