What I love this week…

Last week me and Jenni wandered on over to the mall. APParently it was the big sale day of Microsoft’s new tablet, Surface. I’m not normally that big into talking about tech stuff, but this little thing seems pretty awesome. Last January I switched over from a PC to my Apple laptop. I ALSO have an iPad and an iPhone. Sooooo, I was pretty surprised by how neat this little thing is. There were quite a few features on it that I’d LOVE to see my iPad do. Pretty much: the Surface seems like a little piece of heaven for a blogger/illustrator.

I left our little demo wondering if I’d switch back into the PC world. Then, I started to think…. what about viruses? My PC always had a virus. Always. This tablet actually has Windows running on it. Can it get viruses? I don’t know. I’ve heard the new Windows is pretty amazing, but I’m still not 100% convinced. That would be my ONLY drawback to switching over to the Surface. That’s it.

Ok, I want to know… have you heard about this thing? What do you think. Are you a diehard PC person, or are you all about Apple?

    My husband works for Microsoft and he's so excited to get one himself. He claims it will be amazing! After playing on his, I may need to get one for myself! In our house, Apple is a bad word, so I'm not allowed to have an iPad or an iPhone!

    Knock on wood, but I never have problems with viruses on my PCs. My only experience with an Apple product is the iPad 2 we got for Christmas last year. After a week we returned it and replaced it with a Samsung Tab. We are Android people, and always will be :-/

    I'm glad you thought the surface was cool! In full disclosure, I work for Microsoft but everyone who has one so far says it's really really awesome. Mine comes in December. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is built in security software on it now…PC's have come a long way!! The one that's out now is not as robust as the full WIndows Surface that will be available early next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

      That's what I keep hearing… but, man… just 3 years ago my PC always had a darn virus. BUT, 3 years is a long time in computer talk. ๐Ÿ˜‰
