Surface Pro 3, or Dell XPS infinity (touch screen variant)

Does anyone have experience with these?
>>
>>52510773

I don't no, but I would personally go for an XPS , especially if it's a 15" like the one in the pic

If you want a laptop, buy a fucking laptop, if you want a tablet, buy a fucking tablet.

The thing is you can pick up a cheap tablet for like £100 these days, or even less. There's no point getting some rubbish 2-in-1 12" tablet crap to try and do real work on, when you could spend your money on a proper full size laptop that actually gives you the room to get proper shit done, and still get a tablet for the occasions you might need that (and really, what are the purposes of a tablet besides occasional browsing when you're sat on the sofa / taking a shit?)

don't get a touch screen laptop, they're pointless

I've used both at work but non extensively.
If I had to pick one it would be the xps.
The surface is cool and all but the whole tablet bs is overrated
>>
>>52510773
what do you want in a laptop? thin and light?
get the new x1 carbon
do you care about more than 12 hours of battery life?
get the t450s
do you want touch screen functionality in a thin and light package?
get the new x1 yoga
>>
>>52510773
Does this particular dell have that autobrightness thing? Have they fixed the issue yet?
>>
>>52511300

>useless

Only real use is jacking off.

Laying down on bed, laptop resting on stomach/chest, right hand doing the work, left hand scrolls using the touch screen. Don't have to awkwardly reach for the trackpad while masturbating.
>>
>>52512202
hmmm

>>52512202

you could use your left hand on the trackpad anon

Surface pro if you are constantly handwriting or drawing. XPS I if you need laptop the most.
Toshiba dynapad as an alternative.

vaporware until 2018 if we're lucky

the recommended thinkpad's should be

P50/70
>normal
T450s
>portable
x220/30/40/50/60
Skylake X1 Carbon
>>
>>52517596
What's with the P50 anyways they announce it and then never speak again plus even announce a bunch of other shit for 2016
>>
>>52517616
you can literally buy it right now
Thunderbolt and the i7/xeon make it a candidate for a desktop replacement

Thoughts on UX305?

I'm afraid I bought a meme laptop
>>
>>52517655
Zenbooks are bretty gud. No meme
>>
>>52517655

>>
>>52517692
>>52517718

Got the i5 2015 model. I went on amazon reviews and saw that the UX303 had a shit load of hinge issues and I just hope I don't run into that with my one, maybe the 305 has a better hinge

i am eagerly waiting for the non-touch XPS 15 to become available in europe
>>
>>52517875
>trying to use that 4k display without waiting for the XPS that include iris pro
>>
>>52510773
Neither, both have high resolution displays which is pointless on a laptop as it typically leads to worse GPU performance and battery life than a lower resolution display.

I'd get the XPS 15 with 1080p display instead and doesn't have a touch screen that you probably won't use anyways.

And if anyone recommends a thinkpad, laugh at their faces.
>>
>>52520646
>not getting a 1080p thinkpad
literally name one thing that the XPS does better
>worse build quality all around
>broke bios shit on launch
>god awful screen auto brightness
>only 1.2mm of key travel
possibly it only has better battery life if you're comparing it to the carbon

if you're just going for raw specs then actually yeah I say skip the thinkpads for 2016. none of them have fucking thunderbolt
>>
>>52520771

Is the xps 13 still worth buying? The 15 is a bit big for my taste since I want to carry it around on me around campus.
>>
>>52521768
no ultrascam is worth it
>>
>>52519784
Get the 15 inch one then
>>
>>52521793
Don't want to haul around a bulky 8 pound laptop that needs it's own separate carrying bag, sorry senpai.
>>
>>52521840
3.9 lbs
