Yeah that’s me looking at Reddit lol. I’m day 3 on the 8/128 surface go and so far have used it mainly as a laptop vs a tablet. I’m looking to see if this can replace my MacBook 12inch and 9.7 inch iPad Pro.
So far it’s been pretty good as a laptop. Sure it was laggy during the first few hours during updates but it’s performed pretty well on all the software I use for work which is Office 365 and Chrome.
Today I’ve finally decided to just use this as a tablet laying on the couch. Chrome runs like garbage in tablet mode. However, Edge runs very well. As well as Safari in the iPad except with much more versatility since the Surface Go runs on a fully functional operating system.
Still wish the Go had better hardware though and i would definitely pay more for 16GB RAM and a better CPU on this form factor. Excited to see what Microsoft will announce in October.

Sold my MacBook Air 13″ 2013 i7. I am loving the Surface Pro 3. I’ve had the Surface Pro 1 and 2 and returned those after trying them out for two weeks. However with the Surface Pro 3 I am instantly in love with this thing.
Here are my thoughts on it so far…
Stay tuned for a full review!
The iPad 4 debuted in 2012, but was discontinued last fall on the release of the iPad Air. That changed last month, when Apple brought its fourth-generation tablet back as its new lower-end offering.
The iPad 4 starts at $400, while a similarly-specced iPad Air is $500… Which raises the question: is it worth paying $100 extra for the new version? Let’s find out!
The original Google Nexus 7 that debuted last year showed us that premium products don’t have to have premium prices. At $200, the 7-inch Android tablet stood up to its pricier competitors such as the Apple iPad Mini and with top-of-the line specs at the time. To this day, the first-generation Nexus 7 is still a favorite to those looking for a small tablet. Not content with that, Google has further upped its game this year with a new Nexus 7 sporting all-around improvements like a faster processor and a new 4.3 Android OS, but priced about $30. Has Google given us a boring upgrade? Or is the Nexus 7 a winning dynasty? Let’s find out!
I’ve been so busy as of late and haven’t had time to do any reviews or simple posts. Just recently, we (I) acquired THISISMYWORKSPACE.COM which is a domain name that I thought of when walking home after having a couple of Cajun Fish Tacos over at Wahoo’s. For years, The Geeks Office really never had any direction so it was really hard to figure out what I was going to do with this domain. For now I am going to keep things as they are but focus more on the workspaces. I enjoy looking at how people’s have theirs setup whether it be at work, at home, or even on the floor. It doesn’t really matter. I also just setup a Flickr group called This is My Workspace where you can go ahead and feel free to post your workspace and I will feature it on the site. Continue reading→
It’s been crazy over the past few months and I worked on quite a handful of reviews. In doing that, I’ve rotated through some notebooks, smartphones and other gadgets going from an iPhone 5, to a Note 2, back to an iPhone 5 and now I am rockin’ an HTC One 64GB Developer Edition! I’ve also gone through some notebooks and tablets too such as going from an iPad Mini to a Microsoft Surface Pro, an Asus Transformer, Razer Edge Gaming Tablet to a Retina iPad, and now I am back to the iPad Mini once again. And on the notebook side, I went from my MacBook Air 11″ to a Dell XPS 12 and now I’m loving the MacBook Pro 13″ with Retina Display! I like to play around with the latest and greatest and I probably have an addiction where I will never be satisfied with what I currently have. At this very moment, my trio of the MacBook Pro 13″ Retina, iPad Mini LTE, and my new HTC One will do for now. I still plan to keep the iPhone 5 because as my backup and “in-between” phones to use while I look for something better! Again, lots of tech and lots of food within these two months!

At the time of this writing, there is a large variety of Windows 8 based notebooks, tablets, and hybrids giving you some choices that would best suit your needs. The Dell XPS 12′s swivel screen convertible tablet is unique, but really nothing new as it takes a page from the Dell Inspiron Duo which was released in 2010 but the design was ahead of it’s time since Windows 7 wasn’t really built for a touchscreen interface. Now that we have Windows 8, the Dell XPS 12 combined with it’s flip screen convertible notebook to tablet design makes it a very attractive product.
Is this the one product that Windows 8 users are looking for? Or should we look past the “gimmicks” and find a dedicated notebook and tablet instead? Let’s find out!
With the launch of Windows 8, there have been some really decent tablets such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, Lenovo Yoga, and the Dell XPS 12 but none of these are meant for any type of hardcore gaming. Sure you can play Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja, but wouldn’t you rather have Devil May Cry or Tomb Raider on the go instead?
Razer has introduced its gaming tablet, the Razer Edge, which is more or less the Surface Pro on steroids packed with some powerful hardware that will cater to those who wish to take their desktop PC games on the go with the least amount of compromise as possible.
Is the world ready for a device like this? Or should gamers stick to heavier laptops or continue to launch birds at pigs on their mobile device for portable gaming? Let’s find out!
