x1 tablet gen 3 but shit battery life. Can run linux, surface can't.

>> No.73443276

Bought a Surface, returned it.
-Windows is a shitty tablet OS. Try as they might MS can't get Windows to work with a touch interface. It's awful
-Shit battery life with all those processes running in Windows.
-Crappy, expensive keyboard.

Picked up an iPad Mini 5 and couldn't be happier. You can shit on Apple all you want, but If you want a tablet, there's no other game in town.

Surfaces used to be nice, but stay the fuck away from Gos, Pro 1-4 and the RT. Complete waste of your money. I recommend the Surface Book, it’s more money but GNU looks great and it’s a fucking sexy laptop that transforms into a tablet. I really can’t recommend the surface tablets, for the reasons >>73443276 said.

I'm really curious, why not get pic related (desk mini) and throw in a laptop AC power bank to use it on the go? For $500 you could probably get like 16GB of RAM and a 1TB NVME drive on that thing along with a 2400G with GT 1030 level graphics.

Get an Android tablet for tablet stuff. Get a Windows "tablet" if you need a laptop that you can occasionally remove the keyboard from. The trend of comparing these two very disparate use cases is doing no service to consumers trying to make an informed choice. Figure out what applications you want to use and what your workflow is then go from there.

>> No.73449632

The difference is many of us here have iPads and Android tablets and Chromebooks, and Windows 2in1s in our actual possession and have used the respective devices for many months side by side. We know the things you don't see as a quick reviewer who just writes words their marketing department puts in their mouth. I could give you a litany of reasons why, e.g., a Samsung S5e is better than an iPad that you will never read in a review.Example? S5e is just slim enough to fit in the back pocket of a regular sized pair of men's jeans. Any comparably sized iPad cannot. Which review did I read that in? None of them. I have both devices and use both. Pocketing my tablet means my hands are free which is a world of difference when I'm doing anything other than laying on the couch. These things really matter. That's why /g/ despite the fanboy bs and shills is a higher authority than any and all "review" sites.

Don't avoid anything completely just be sure to take it all with a grain of salt. I look for people relating specific scenarios like the "fits in my pocket" anecdote above since that rings true. Maybe look for regular people who post pics of the device they are speaking about so at least you know they actually have it. I went on a Pixel vs iPhone 6S tangent a long time ago but I had both devices and knew of what I spoke unlike most of whom I was typing to. I have an iPad and a Galaxy Tab S5e so I know a little something about the relative merits.

I have an iPad but returned the s5e, of course it had the better screen but Android for tablet sucks. And Samsung isn’t really doing shit about it besides try to pass Dex as some sort of desktop replacement.

>> No.73455292

No, because Apple has been feeling pressure to turn ipads into laptops and they couldn't deliver. They can only do a fraction of what dex can. This isn't just Samsung banging rocks together, they literally partnered up with canonical to bring desktop usability on a tablet and that threatened apple's "what's a computer?" retarded jab at windows laptops.

Granted this won't be supported anymore on Android 10 devices so it wasn't their ace in the hole but it's a preview of what's to come. Because apple chooses to wall garden their users they won't have the same flexibility as Android will for replacing laptops which is what samsung aims to do.

This will all come full circle as samsung and microsoft bring in a new era of high efficiency portable computers that will finally be able to run 64-bit windows software and eventually replace Android on tablets. This isn't some pipe dream, you can actually run x86 VMs on any android device right now through qemu.

>> No.73455594

They probably will, I don't use Power Point but I was trained in it. So far I only need Excel and Outlook with Word for memos. My spreadsheets aren't fucking crazy like the analyst boys so I will be fine with x86 for now. But once they start releasing the ARM 64s I will jump on it.

Apple is literally decades behind MS, Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm.

>> No.73455744

Are you retarded? The Apple custom cores are simply light years ahead of qualcomm. They're wider than fucking Zen 2 or any of the intel Lakes, they're massive cores that are clocked low with short bursts of turbo (not too dissimilar to Intel's boost behavior on their mobile Y chips). Apple is basically sacrificing die area to keep power down and performance up. It's like if Nvidia stuck the 2080TI in a laptop and tuned it down to like 1200mhz so it uses under 80W just so they can have like >2.5x perf/power over everything else on the market. Qualcomm's basically all in on their retarded MOAR COARS MOAR NIGGAHURTZ strategy like bulldozer. But they've been slowly widening it
