    I have been debating on getting a laptop for awhile. I haven't really needed one or truly needed a tablet (even though I would like an iPad) -- I just know I wouldn't use it as much. Well as times do they have changed and since I am studying for things (CCNA/CCNA Sec./AWS) I figured having a laptop I can use anywhere to study would be beneficial.

    Long story short... I decided to grab the Surface Laptop 2. It seems like a pretty good machine for studying / running some labs so.. here it is :P. I got the i5/8GB/256 GB combo. I first tried the 128 GB combo but saw 60 GB after updates and said nope so I exchanged.

    Any tips? I haven't used mobile in a long while since I really only gamed on PCs (self built ofc).

    Couldn"t you have purchased the iPad for less money and still satisfied your need. Interested in yours and others thoughts on this.

    iPad can't run Cisco SIM labs and such. I got the Surface Laptop 2 for $999.

    I decided I need a wifi port for some of my Cisco stuff. I couldn't fathom paying the $50 Microsoft price for their USB to Ethernet so just snagged the Amazon Basics $13 one.
