    HI there

    What about those "Convertibles" or things like Surface pro 3.

    Question is a bit meaningless though -- Would you rather have a 4X4 or a Ferrari -- on a German Autobahn with no speed limit I'd love the Ferrari -- but if I'm off road or in a place with dodgy mud slides etc give me the 4X4.

    Chose whatever is fit for purpose FOR YOU - don't worry about other people.

    W10 Pro (desktop), W10 (laptop), W10 Pro (tablet), W10 (laptop)

    I have an Android smartphone, Win 8.1 tablet, Android tablet, Win 7 netbook, Win 8.1 laptop and a Win 7 desktop. I have uses for them all and use each of them when appropriate. The only exception is the Android tablet. Ever since I got the Win 8.1 tablet, the Android tablet pretty much just sits collecting dust.

    I would say laptop, but I got a hybrid, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, which kinda fits both. It's more laptop than tablet, but it's multi-modes all get plenty of usage.

    I have tried MANY device combinations. I think my current W8 hybrid/Android phone set up is just right for me. Other devices have been redundant and have ended up on craigslist.

Connect a Win 8 tablet to a Vista laptop
Hi I've been playing with Win 8 for a while now and love it but I'd like to try and share stuff on my old laptop with it. I can connect my Vista laptop to my tablet, because I can view devices on the network, but Win 8 uses Homegroups which I believe Vista doesn't. I've never use Win 7 so...

Stylus for non-tablet laptop touchscreen?
I have an iBuyPower Battalion Touch CZ-11 Ultra. Is it possible to get a stylus that would work for this screen? I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think its touchscreen is similar to that of an iPad (with less touch points), and I know the iPad can't use say a Nintendo DS stylus. On the site,...
