    Can someone list the pros and cons of a Surface RT tablet? My gf is considering one and I want to seem knowledgeable haha :P
    Pros:
    Battery life
    low-heat (no fan)
    Office
    well-built
    The advantages of Windows RT

    cons:
    no x86 support (no chrome, no desktop apps other than the ported Office)
    The disadvantages of Windows RT
    Not an iPad
    Prone to bashing
    performance is iffy?

    someone who has one help me and this guy here

    On an unrelated note, I HAVE TO MOW THE LAWN TODAY NOOO

    I wish I had the Lumia 920/5. I visited the night safari in Singapore this evening, and flash photography was not allowed.... Couldn't capture good pics on my camera. The L920 would hv been amazing

    It would be a good place Nokia to advertise the 920/5

    I too have been thinking about a Windows tab for school. Should I get one now or just wait for the newer hardware to come out?

    IDK... I really like the reported battery life of the Surface RT, compared to a pro, but am having a hard time getting past not being able to install desktop apps.

    I was looking at the Asus Smart Tab, the Windows 8 version. The only thing I don't like about it is that lack of USB slot. I do like the fact that can get a 64GB version in the same price point as the Surface RT.

    to many, that is a potential con

    (less of a status symbol, less wow-worthy in most people's eyes i guess)

    No, a con is where people dress up as their favorite anime characters... Or ST or SW, etc.... I have a site for anime cons.... Www.sinime.com go to cons from the left menu... Need to update the site.... Haven't been to a con in a while, but with the little one, 5 month old, I'll probably get back into it in a fee years.

    Edit: sorry, go to "Anime Conventions" from the left menu

    I'm totally lost. I have no clue what most of the Xbox avatars are, much less anime characters.

    I thought Forza was a real auto race, not a game LOL.

    That just goes to show how little I know or care about games.

    Good morning!

    I've slept terribly and I have a fine headache in addition, my boss didn't send the report back and I can't find my motivation anywhere.

    Perfect Monday I'd say!

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having such a terrible Monday.

    I hope that means the week will only get better once Monday is over.
