Game Changer

I loved my first ASUS (Android) tablet. Still use it daily after nearly three years. It's mainly a social tool though for Facebook, Email, and then some Evernote.

At work I develop on a desktop computer and have a development laptop which I take home, for all that after hours stuff I do! I remember not that long ago, when we were debating whether you could develop satisfactorily on a lap top!

Yesterday however, my 4 (and a half) year old work laptop was replaced - yep - with a Surface Pro 3. It's an i7, 8GB RAM and 256Gig Hard Drive - and it works like a tablet, and like a lap top.

It comes with a 12 inch screen, which makes for some pretty small fonts at times, but considering we also got the dock, I can hook it up to a couple of monitors and all is good.

I guess this means I'll end up doing a bit more work at home in the near future - well considering what I'm supposed to be shipping over the next 12 months, that's to be expected.

As exciting as new toys are, it's now time to squash that lizard brain and get on with using the new toy tool, to ship today's work!
