So, I’ve been reading all the various “issues” and disappointments here and I just think we’ve all lost perspective. If you wanted a stunning computer, spend the money on a Macbook Pro or a new Surface Book. As someone who has been trying out Windows 10 on a Surface while waiting for my V, I’ve basically noticed that even in Windows-based software, the attention to detail and the fine tuning is just not at the level I’m used to from OSX applications and hardware.
For example, Windows 10 Mail; could be a great product, they just needed to copy AirMail on the Mac; but it falls short in many simple ways. It’s nearest analog on Windows is Mailbird; but it’s 32-bit and eats your battery even though they advertise it with a Surface. It’s the little things that kill the experience with Windows tech. IMHO.
So, I think my expectations of the V are no higher than what I expect to find in the Windows world. I’ve been spoiled on my Mac; I’ve been going back to it more and more and leaving the Surface behind. Likely my V will just become a really expensive tablet since I’m missing productive finesse in basic Windows apps like mail and calendar, Windows 10 tends to sleep and never wake, sound service goes missing constantly, etc. Not V’s problems; but it sets the expectations.
While I think the Eve team could have used the extra time waiting on screens to make sure sound, battery life, etc were rock solid to ensure a great customer experience, we’re basically getting what we paid for IMHO; so we should be satisfied. I am hoping by the time I get my unit, those issues will be solved and I will love it.
