Hello friends. I decided to ask Eve for refund. I know it will take like forever but my decision is solid. I have to decide what next. Can you help me with this?
Why I chose V?
Long time ago I was going to buy Surface Pro 4. Because it’s small but crazy. I intended (and still would like to) sometimes work in the field, in the park on a bench, etc. These were the assumptions of the first decisions on changing the laptop. Greater mobility, good power in a small package, change of the software environment from Corel to Adobe. And most importantly: music. It is a very important part of my life. I have a lot of sound in the car, at work, at home and I have Axon 7 I have access to great music, no matter where I am. I have my own collection of CDs (250 pieces) from the Dio style (I have probably all the albums that came out, some in several versions, I’m generally crazy about Dio, tattoo on the chest, etc.), Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica etc and also completely other moods, musicals, 50-70 years, etc.
It is the quality of the sound, not the price (which was a nice addition) that convinced me that the V will be perfect for me. How we all know. Until now, when I hook up V to believe the stereo signal power does not even raise one line on the spectrum, where Axon 7 fills it.
What do I expect from a new computer?
As I mentioned, I still care about mobility, my assumptions have not changed. I use the computer only for work, internet and music. Office, Adobe CC, web browser, email. I do not play and I’m not going to play games, I have an Xbox One X Scorpio. At the beginning I was excited about the pen that I would like to paint nice things, but ultimately it is not important to me.
What would I like to buy?
There are three devices that interest me: Surface Pro 4 / PRO, Surface Book 13, MacBook Pro 13. Conditions: i7, 16gb, minimum 256GB disk. Budget - about 2500 Euro
Why Macbook PRO? Exactly: MPXT2ZE / A / P1 / D1 / R1
Because I’m curious. Generaly. People say that for a perfect job that is solid, that everything always works just like that. That would be a nice change after V.
advantages and disadvantages of the MacBook: It’s not 2 in 1. Do not put it so well next to your monitor. Price, but I can handle it.
Why Surface PRO / 4?
SP4 because it is cheap and should be enough. My wife has SP4 M3 and is happy but she is not a “heavy user”. Audio not bad, also on the headphones. It should be enough.
Why Surface Book 1/2?
First generation only as Performance Base. It has a lot of power under Adobe CC, PB version supposedly polished and it is a very good product. From what I have seen, I am able to buy a 2-3 month Surface Book 2 in my budget, but I do not know if it is worth buying a cheaper version of the first one. On eBay there are devices from the USA with additions at the price of V.
I am asking you for advice, comments on individual devices, your experience. If you can suggest other devices that meet my requirements, I will be happy to meet them.
