    Poor Touchscreen screen and bad keyboard are enough to skip this.

    I honestly don't get it. Aren't these just worse mobile devices? Worse because the standard windows GUI works so poorly for many applications.

    Wouldn't most users be better served with the slack and evernote apps on an iPad?

    It would make sense if these machines could run more powerful windows software, but they can't, so, what's the point!

    a 4G/5G gaming laptop, with no datacap, would really be a master of all trades.

    sure, current battery tech won't allow you to game long, but anything else my aero 15x goes a solid 6-7hrs with normal usage (2 or less in games) on a 94wh battery

    Funny thing is, when I use a Chromebook I almost always prefer the web app to the android app. There is also a Chromebook Plus for Verizon that has LTE in the Verizon store that would be an interesting comparison device.

    Instead of keeping your device on standby and losing battery, you can instead hibernate it (with hibernation you won't lose any battery juice).

    Mr. Mobile. I danced to the tune when the video started. I got excited when you started talking. I get goosebumps when your throw your punchlines in the script. I staw in Awe when your phenomenal writing prowess and oratory skills describes the mundane things with that grandeur. The way you deliver yourself in these videos is nothing short of a perfect movie scene. May you get the recognition you deserve. And when you do we all will be clapping and cheering for you there. God speed my man.

    I must be doing something wrong (or right) since I get about the same battery life (on a brand new battery) on the mid 2015 macbook pro I bought a few months ago. I'm not an apple fan either, I more or less had to buy it since coreaudio and final cut pro x are honestly way too good.

    Are you actually typing in your videos or is it your sublime acting. Because I would not be able to type one correct word if I would type like you. 😉 Hahaha.
    Making a video like you do however, that's no acting, that's craftsmanship!

  • Reply Timothy Vreeland March 26, 2020 at 12:00 am

    I love the new Edge browser, but honestly I think you shouldn't have listened to the vocal minority, which were probably all brand loyalists. Chrome has the biggest user base, and it's not even close, so it makes more sense to base your review around Chrome, since that is what most viewers need tested. It is what viewers will see in the real world after they throw their money down for a device.

    You should revisit the SURFACE PRO-X, now that you have a better understanding of how to use Web apps! You owe that to your viewers at least, especially after the somewhat unfair scrutiny, I don't totally blame you for. Microsoft should have been very straightforward. I'm sure they're aware the device works best with Web apps!
