My daughter originally bought the Acer C720P Chromebook but after a week returned it and got the Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298. Why? MovieMaker. Her only criteria was cost and she wanted to mess...

WPC 2014: Microsoft's Chromebook Counterattack Commented on: 14 weeks ago (July 15, 2014)

Case in point, my 16 year old, flush with her first job, just got the Acer C720P Chromebook for about $300. It spec's out decent, but has hdmi. She's had a smartphone for a few years and want to...

"Play more than 100 songs at once." That must sound horrible. ;-)

Surface Pro 3: Let's Talk About the Price Commented on: 21 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

My Surface 2 has no performance lack that I can perceive in real life usage. Is there a perceivable benefit to the higher end processors when none of them have to deal with a spinning hard drive?...

I have no desire to play games online for just the reasons you outline. I play games with my daughter or I play alone.

Xbox vs. PlayStation: A Tale of Two Controllers Commented on: 48 weeks ago (November 19, 2013)

While this is nice, I am more concerned with the merge of the code base after having been burned buying a Lumia 900. The inability to update WP7 to 8 was an insult and if my new Surface2 is...

Surface 2 Upgrades that Early Adopters Should Consider Commented on: 1 year ago (October 21, 2013)

Exactly the path I am taking. Used the Best Buy promotion to get $200 on my Surface RT. Will get the Surface 2, I kept my Touch Cover and will get the wireless adapter so that I can control it...
