Surface Laptop 2, or Can I Do Better?
Last edited 25/06/2019 - 22:32
Ok so basically I am considering buying a laptop. I currently have a desktop that’s quite slow. Most of the things I do on it work, but I tend not to use it often just because it does take a while to load up and start software. And also it’s fixed location in my apartment can be painful, it would be nice to be exceptionally lazy and use it in bed.
I do a bit of photo editing using RawTherapee and this can be slow for my changes to apply. Otherwise I’m mostly playing a few games or just internet browsing. I guess my main purpose for my desktop (which I will still keep), is file storage. (Let’s not go into the physical v cloud debate either!)
I used a Surface Laptop 2 in an old job and quite liked it. It was fast in booting up and seemed to manage most tasks well. That being said I never installed all of the games or RT on it.
Given the current sales on the surface laptop 2, I’m wondering if I should buy one or research alternatives before jumping in.
I’m not in a rush to buy one, but if it turns out the surface laptop 2 is the best choice, I’d probably have to wait until Boxing Day (or next release) for similar prices.
Thanks in advance!
