My Story. 20 months ago I was in the market to purchase a SP4, having previously owned the SP2 and 2 * SP3’s. The EVE V seemed to be too good to be true but was promising.
So I took the plunge. With all the delays it came time that I actually could wait no longer. So instead of purchasing a SP4 I said to my self the EVE will be here soon, so I went a purchased a Lenovo 710. This turned out to be a heap of shit, Fan Noise wise, it was like a jet engine even with all the fixes including third party fan control software.
Anyway I then took the plunge on a dell XPS which is perfect in every way possible. I can hear some people say that the XPS is a different beast to which I will reply to by saying yes it is. But I was still waiting on the device I actually wanted in my briefcase as I traversed across Europe on a regular basis. I spend a minimum of 164 hours traveling and commuting for/with work in each 4 week period, that does not include working. Yes I am a very busy bee. I love my XPS and for heavy lifting computing tasks it is, how can I say this, literally the best 15" laptop money can buy.
But my desire for an excellent tablet that would lend itself well to taking digital notes during client meetings an all the rest was still very high.
This may irk people who can only afford to have the EVE they purchased delivered. But these are tools of my trade.
So all in if the EVE was delivered as promised I may have saved 3000 euros, but I would definitely saved the money I dropped on the lenovo. Never mind the inordinate amount of wasted time looking for updates in the forums, writing posts, logging support issues that are never updated.
The ironic thing was if they had properly project managed this project they would have had way better outcomes. I was also in the market for three additional tablets, well as you can imagine that order went else where too.
