In November 2016, Microsoft reported its Surface family is becoming increasingly popular and “more people are switching from Macs to Surface than ever before.” The company noted that November was its best month ever for consumer Surface sales. According to the tech firm, professional users are converting to its high-end hybrid PCs – the Surface Pro 4 tablet, Surface Book laptop and Surface Studio desktop – due to the disappointment of the Apple MacBook Pro.
Microsoft Surface Studio
The Surface Studio 28-inch all-in-one computer ships with a standard Surface Pen, an updated Sculpt mouse, and a keyboard. Microsoft says that the Studio is a must-have machine for creative and professionals users. According to the company, the all-in-one PC is designed for “how people naturally create and bring ideas to life.”
The Studio features an ultra-HD 4.5K screen that delivers 63% more pixels than a state-of-the-art 4K TV. It can be converted into a digital canvas from a workstation. In the Studio Mode, it sits at a 20-degree angle, the same angle as a standard drafting board, making it ideal for sketching, writing and designing.
Could the Miix 720 dominate the world of detachables?
Lenovo has plenty of interesting stuff to show off at this year’s CES, and those who want to stay productive on the move will definitely be interested in the new Miix 720 – a compelling Surface Pro rival – along with new ThinkPad X1 models.
Lenovo’s Miix 720 is a 2-in-1 detachable featuring a 12-inch Gorilla Glass display with a resolution of 2880 x 1920 (3:2 ratio, just like Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4), so it certainly won’t be lacking on the sharpness front.
The device is driven by a Kaby Lake processor (up to Core i7) and has integrated graphics (Intel HD Graphics 620), and it can be specified with up to 16GB of system RAM, and up to 1TB of storage in the form of a PCIe SSD.
A recent report from CNet is indicating that Microsoft’s Surface Pro series is starting to closely compete with Apple’s MacBook Pro line of laptops, if not becoming better. While the laptop isn’t released yet and is expected to be coming around 2017, its specs already speaks of a clear message that it would blow the current MacBook Pro 2016 out of the water.
If any of you received a new PC or tablet this holiday season, it is moist likely running Microsoft’s new flagship operating system – Windows 10.
Windows 10 was initially released in July of 2015 and since then it has had two major Feature Updates released for it – the November Update in November 2015 and the Anniversary Update on 02 August 2016.
Each Feature Update adds new features to the OS but the core elements of the software remain fairly standard with a few tweaks along the way.
Here at SuperSite: Windows we have been poking and prodding Windows 10 for over two years now and we have learned much about the OS. As a result, we have put together a huge selection of tips and how-to’s that can assist both veteran and new Windows 10 users.
