While waiting for your V or a refund, what is your current portable set up?
I’m using a Surface 3, which is fine for note taking, but is really showing its age.
Most of the screen has issues, with big yellow/orange/purple patches, a huge patch with subpixels which can’t go properly dark, and some of these pixels which can’t go dark can’t even go bright properly anymore either.
It takes several seconds to switch to and from full screen on youtube.
The keyboard keys are much stiffer than I like, to the point where typing is inconvenient and typoes are frequent.
As I discovered when my desktop was out of action, the installers for the software I need to use for my university course cause it to crash. That’s right; the installer alone crashes the whole computer.
The touch screen calibration isn’t perfect, but usually good enough. The pen usually writes a few millimetres away from the actual pen tip. But, good enough to get by.
For the last week or so, I’ve had a BSOD almost every day. And on one of those days, after recovering from a BSOD, it completely lost power suddenly, then lost power again shortly after recovering from that.
(the yellow corners in the black-screen image are just to do with the viewing angle of the camera, and aren’t an issue in person. But the glowy bits and other yellow/purple/blue splodges are a real issue)
When I ordered the V, my Surface was 2 years old and I was looking forward to the upgrade to a more capable machine without the screen issues (which weren’t as bad back then). Now I really need a replacement.
But until Eve holds up their end of the transaction, I have no choice but to keep using it.
So what are you using? An old workhorse you planned to replace with a V, or something new which you bought while waiting?
