How I REALLY really feel about my Intel 2 in 1 tablet laptop
It had been 15 years since I had touched a PC when Intel asked if they could send me a 2-in-1 tablet.
But I knew I wouldn’t use it. The same way I didn’t use the Samsung Galaxy Note I promised to review.
We are Apple people. It’s a hard habit to break. In fact, one of my friends and fellow bloggers had to have her husband hide her iPhone from her for a whole week because it was the only way she could force herself to use an Android device.
Well… let me tell you something about this Dell 2-in-1 that Intel sent… it’s pretty darn alright by me.
Why I kind of LOVE my Intel 2-in-1 Laptop Tablet
Because I can type AND touch the screen
Which, btw, is what I do all the time on my Mac, but the difference is that on the Mac nothing happens when I touch the screen. Even my five year old thinks touching the screen is obvious UX/UI (user experience / user interface), but not Apple.
I didn’t even realize that was a feature (seriously… set. in. my. ways) until I accidentally touched the screen while playing and something magically happened. No I’m all touchy touchy all over the place.
I can watch TV in my TV-less kitchen
I can flip it into a tablet with a HUUUUUUGE reading surface
WHICH MEANS I can travel with just one lightweight device instead of a laptop AND an iPad.
But mostly, because I can finally use…
Windows Live Writer.
My entire blogging career has been haunted by Live Writer envy. There’s just not a decent Mac comparison. Mars Edit is cute, but not quite as handy.
But let’s be real… I still love my Air, and as a compulsive multitasker I am absolutely guilty of using both at once. This is me. My mind is opening. The Apple is not so shiny these days.
If you’re looking for a great investment I’d strongly recommend this one, because seriously… it’s a legit laptop and tablet for like $500-ish.
