    And you realize what you can do with a Dremmel on it?

    Digital artist found dead in home. Details sketchy.

    I'll be keeping an eye on the Galaxy Book 10 and will be interested to see how it benchmarks against the Surface 3. I'm hoping against hope that the eMMC will somehow be better this time around. Would it have killed Samsung to just use UFS or a proper SSD? I blame Intel and their crazy prices for Core M. Worst case I buy a used Surface 3 at a big savings and use it until through some tragic coincidence it dies shortly after Surface Pro 5 is released ;)

    I installed the creators update yesterday and while the features are better, I feel like performance has kind of gone backwards. Like I am noticing some lag that wasn't really there before. Standby time is also very bad. I took it off the charger at 9:30am this morning, didn't touch my S3 until around 11:30am and I was at 88% battery life. As I am typing this I am at 80% battery life. I am hoping it take like a few days to settle and all, but so far the extra features do not outweigh the loss in performance and battery life.

    I would expect that from Kuma, but not you...:rolleyes:

    I wouldn't give Samsung cover - if @sonichedgehog360 's Cube Mix can have Kaby Lake Core M, with a 128gb SATA M2 drive, FOR $300 and change, then there is NO EXCUSE for Samsung or any other vendor, with their buying power, to resort to eMMC - NONE!:mad:

    This looks like a 16:9 display, is it?
    Does it have this eMMC

    Or maybe it has some traffic problems in Ft. Lee.

    Yes, 16:9. No, it isn't eMMC. It has a user-accessible M.2 2242 SSD slot.
