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

    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.

    I also have an iPad Air 2 and a Surface 3 (non-Pro). I have appreciated the Surface 3 (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.

    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.

    My main PC has an i7 4790K, 16GB of RAM, and two GTX 970s.

     

    My laptop is an old HP EliteBook 8460p with an i5 2520M, 8GB of RAM, and a terrible useless Radon GPU that just causes me nothing but trouble.

     

    My work laptop is  Dell Latitude E5450 with an i5 something or other, and 16GB of RAM.

    Currently opn a average Desktop config.

    Core i5 3ºgen, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD and a R9 390 GPU on Win10 Pro.

    My latest acquisition was an Intel Realsense SR300 3D camera to work with Windows Hello. It really works great even on 3º gen Core i5.
