    Yea, also depends on use case, you're not using either laptop to seriously game, but if you had to, the sp3 would obviously be better for that.

    Eh, fair. Most people who argue over OS X vs Win usually get absolutely nowhere. I'm only biased towards OS X because I've used it and it's unix-like which is a huge plus for me for terminal stuff.

    Yup osx wins hands down if you're thing is terminal dev'ing, something win10 is trying to fix with a power shell.

    Lol as a programmer, even without gaming I'd take a Razer Blade Pro. Hope the new model comes with a touch screen, it can actually be helpful in many scenarios. Having a nice GPU to go with a device is always a nice thing, especially if your messing with anything that has to do with 3D.

    With every click windows gets slower and slower. Never been a Mac person but I just got tired of the constant reimaging hard drives and bought my wife a MacBook pro. And yes that surface keyboard is rather crummy.

    It would be a whoot if they were from Missouri. Lol.

    Any confirmed reports on firmware from GameStop?

    I've heard a lot of ppl bring up these same points, upon further questioning these have almost always been people who 1. never actually used anything above win8.1 and 2. Don't know that Microsoft has released 5 different keyboards for the surface... Touch 1 Type 1, Touch 2 Type 2, and one of the best keyboards on an ultrabook to date the surface pro type cover 3.

    Yeah, playasia is routinely more expensive than other japanese importers. People have said you can use a US CC on the JPN eshop so do that unless you really need to use paypal.

    Everybody these days thinks they need the latest and greatest. I've been using the same netbook for college courses for a good while and I've never been let down by it. ASUS 2.0GHz Dual-Core with Windows 7. Cost me $250, barely more than an N3DS lol. Of course my home PC is a monster, but that's a different story. When you're outside of your home, you really just need something reliable, not super fast/expensive.

    This is a very true statement, as long as you have something that can get what you need done you should be fine. For me who is out and about all the time I have my G750 for both my gaming and work needs.

    Agree, if it's not your main, then does it really matter. The reason I brought up the sp3 vs air was because of value per dollar and how Americans are spoon fed products. The sp3 happens to be EXTRA useful to me as I only carry one thing to my college classes... And that one thing has all my handwritten notes as well as required textbooks (which I have saved a killing on because digital). So yea, to each is own.

    I mean don't get me wrong, Apple is definitely the epitome of unnecessary overspending on technology of any kind, but I can see why people would shy away from Windows 8, too. Hopefully Win10 accomplishes what Win8 kinda failed on, and that's to be a solid OS across all Windows devices, portable or not, immediately after release.

    Of course, I might change my tune quick if my student aid comes through for this next semester and it's more than I expect it to be. A multi-function PC with a touchscreen could prove quite useful in that case.

    :P

    Nothing wrong with Linux, but definitely more for the DIY type of person, lol. I have Ubuntu on an older machine that was given to me for free, and that thing runs almost as fast as a Windows machine with twice as much power. So it's definitely less of a resource hog, and Linux has better data encryption/security, but being a PC gamer on Linux is just more of a martyrdom than I'm willing to take on, rofl.
