That's good news …

Not sure how the performance will be but by judging how Windows XP and 7 runs on latest iPad Pro (youtube videos) …

Invited the family over to my place for a Canada day pancake brekky! w00t w00t! I love pancakes. I can enjoy it with anything over it, from a simple butter, to jam and why not peanut butter... yummy. I ate these things (the toppings, not the pancakes) with waffles some weeks ago. Do you like bacon …

The only reason why Apple hasn't put a Wacom touchscreen into their Macbooks is that they're afraid to kill the iPad sales. Why buy a tablet when you can get a notebook that is also a tablet? I might even switch to Apple if they had a similar device to my ThinkPad L390 Yoga which is very versatile. …

I wouldn't use a pen on a phone - but on a tablet yes. My mother is an architect and has a Lenovo Yoga with, uh, I believe it is, because I've tried it once, a touch screen. She never uses it (the touch screen). But yea, this model can flip around and turn into a tablet so you can touch it and even …

How about mice vs touchpads? I'd rather use a touchpad, but for things like Photoshop I need a mice because of some level of precision (Yes, I am that picky with each pixel I design). Unless I have a touch screen with a pen, then I don't need a mice anymore. All I need is a keyboard, a touch screen …

IMO the use of touch screens varies according to who is using. We obviously don't need every screen to be touch screen. For example, designers and artists would love it, especially with a pen. I for one like it for my UI/UX designs. And having a screen this big with touch instead of buying a bulky …

I have a pen and I used my 2nd gen iPad Pro to design one website and a few logos professionally. I have to say, I can do my work mostly from there. Just give me access to a cloud server and I could perfectly develop an entire site out from my iPad Pro. The tools for that are there: Vectornator X, …
