Increasingly, I am finding myself in need of something more than the IQ screen for confirming captures in the field - both for focus and exposure.
Thanks to Ken and Don, I had almost decided on an i7/256GB Surface Pro 3, but a couple of recent announcements have me thinking. Price on all are about the same and still less than what I paid for my tripod head!
1. Surface Pro 3 - light, great touch interface, tablet format. How is it as a digitizer? Also, what are you guys seeing for battery life with C1?
2. Dell XPS 13 - at 2.8lbs almost the same weight as the SP3 with keyboard. Looks a little more rugged, higher res screen. Of course the SP3 can be made a lb lighter by removing the keyboard. But the attached keyboard does offer a level of dust protection in the field. Although this has touch, it is not quite a tablet format. Along with the higher res screen, all report indicate incredible battery life. The CPU line is also one generation up from what is in the SP3.
3. Wait for whatever apple comes out with for the MBA Retina. I suspect this will be more like the Dell XPS 13. The rumoured iPad Pro will likely be a multi-tasking IOS device, so not really a candidate for running C1.
WWDD (what would Dante Do)?
Appreciate your thoughts.
