Surface Pro 2

So i got one of these frim my fiance for Xmas and holy fuck these things are amazing...

It's pretty much a low end power gaming machine....

Nothing better then playing full PC games from your toilet.

I suggest the extra expense if you want a lower end traveling PC.

I'm going to get steam and start DLing old games.

I've yet to play with a Surface Tablet (pro or not), but if I were to get one I'd definitely go with the Pro 2.

That was my recommendation in your last thread. There is no other comparable device.

The ONLY reason to not get the Pro 2 if you're looking for that sort of functionality is the price, in which case you just get the Pro from the last generation. The Surface 2 (this generation's Surface RT) has the shitty nVidia Tegra processor which is fine for your mom but not for a serious user who wants to push the tech hard at all.

All of them. That's what's amazing about the Surface Pro 2. Pick a genre you like on PC and you can do it.

Yup. I had a Nomad Zen Xtra but it wasn't 1 1995 item at all. More like 2002. But yea. The Surface Pro 2 is quite a piece of kit but it doesn't scratch an itch I have. Glad you are enjoying it though, the magic price, for me would be 7 bills or under.

He's referring to the Sega Nomad, I think.

Only problem with the Nomad was that it went through 6AA batteries in about 15 minutes.

Hahaha! The GameGear was bad enough, on the battery life, but the Nomad took it to a whole new level. I still wanted one though
