    I'd be happy to get one from the bottom of a cereal box. Wouldn't go beyond that in spending though... it's just that kind of useful as a PC.
     
  2. Just got the Toshiba 925T for my wife and she loves it. I am looking to return mu Microsoft Surface, pay a little more and get a Ultra-book convertible for myself. Any suggestions?
     
  3. Waiting will reward. I held out for months until the Nexus 10 for my GF and so glad I did, it's better than I had hoped. For myself, I want a detachable keyboard and real windows, convertibles are nice, but I give a lot of client presentations and walking in with a small binder and light laptop is so much more elegant than lugging in a laptop and looking for a place to setup etc, besides that, it's really about work and play, when you want to work, you want a keyboard, afterwards I don't want to lug around the weight...Physical keyboards, no "sort of" keyboards.
     
  4. Why is there no story about the random reboots of Windows Phone 8 here on techspot?

    Buy any of the above but Lenovo Yoga. Somehow, Lenovo has been able to find ways to waste 60GB out 128 GB just on OS (and related data).

    Personally I like the HP Spectre XT, but I will buy only if they offer it with a 'discrete' GPU.

    Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch looks good to me.

    A good friend of mine just told me today he bought a W8 tower & so I will be checking it out next month I think.
    Looking forward to checking it out.(y)

    Samsung Series 5? Meh? I don't think it's that great. I do NOT like the MacBooks either.

    I'm in the market for a workstation-like laptop with a touchscreen, win8, DDR 1600 and decent graphics. Maybe dual HDD bays if possible. Price is no object, what should I get?
