What do you run?

I’m posting on a Surface Pro 3 (the i3/4GB/128GB that was on clearance last December). What are you running?

    <p>Core i7-4770, 32GB RAM, GeForce GTX 670, 512GB Samsung 850 PRO SSD</p>
    <p>I’ll probably do a refresh when the Kaby Lake desktop processors come out. I couldn’t justify it until now, given that I like to overhaul everything with each refresh.</p>
    <p>I also have an iPad Air 2 and a Surface 3 (non-Pro).&nbsp;I have appreciated the Surface 3&nbsp;(especially for light travel usage) but it’s increasingly looking dead-end. If there’s nothing to make me think otherwise in the next refresh then I may abandon Windows on the tablet front.</p>

    <p>A Lenovo Flex 2 14" from 2014. A great mid-range laptop with an extremely competitive price. Has a Haswell i5 and a nvidia 840m. Back in 2014, very few mid-range laptops had screens with good viewing angles, let alone a 1080p resolution and touch, but this laptop had all those! The 4Gb of ram and spinning hdd are showing their age, but I still like this laptop quite alot. It’s quiet, never runs hot, and I can even get some decent gaming done on it.</p>
