i don't get it either, but I've never liked mobile gaming, & I'm not in an industry that would make use of apps that would benefit from cell phone processing power. I'll stick to my nintendos & laptops for everything no phone calls & texting.

i'm looking forward to my 6s+ finally dying for a third time (warranties ftw) i'm gonna grab light phone 2.

This might finally be the year for me to get a Surface Pro. A real Windows OS on a tablet always sounded good so I have been watching them for years but they never seemed quite right. USB-C finally, lol

They really killed it with this. I think they could do a full os windows phone at this point but there wouldn't be good mobile app support. I have to admit, as much as I would love a full Windows os device in a phone form, without the mobile app support it would be an awkward experience. Maybe someday.

They seem very confident with their x86 emulation. Really curious to see how that performs.

Apple starting to look like they're standing still next to Microsoft.

I'm really excited about AMD making it in a premium device. Granted it might not be Zen 2, but we need something other than Intel in laptops.

I'm not big on smart devices and such anymore but the dual screen phone does look pretty enticing. I'm told the Snapdragon 855 is on par with an i3 so it should be plenty powerful too.

We started transitioning to new Surface Pro's at my last job and had to switch back to the old desktops. Too many overheating issues and constant charging failures were interfering with our ability to do work. It's a nice device with a gorgeous display but I don't think it's quite ready as a replacement device yet. Maybe the next gen will have it all ironed out but I wouldn't be quick to buy one at release.

Agreed with the Surface Pro. They should have gone with Surface books.
I have a Surface Book 2, and absolutely love it. Its the 15" and I would say its a very capable office/work desktop replacement and is far more portable than any other laptops I've used. They can tend to overheat when gaming so running something like throttle stop is a must if you are doing any gaming or serious intense graphics workloads. Just general email/web/development/IT Admin etc...its perfect out the box and easy to run around with at a datacentre in tablet-only mode

Hi,
Surface was just a concoction of a larger cell phone so why would anyone be surprised it has heat issues
Too small for any type of real cooling
Too expensive to even think about really with those issues

But these devices are a 2 maybe 3 year before replacing about like cell phones life span is usually
Only difference is cell phone replacement is impulse upgrade buying for the latest and so called greatest.

MS is just wanting to be in that upgrading fad market with surface line so, do it upgrade it every year or two and why complain about heat

99% of my cell phone purchasing is done while not owning a cell phone. The only thing I impulsively buy is good ganja. God tier nugs are like Pokemon. gotta catch em all! I guess I'm lucky to not have other impulses besides that.

Apple standing still next to Microsoft? It's 2019 and they're still shipping x86 bit operating systems. There was a reason for AMD x86_64 and that was to provide backward compatibility.
