Let me begin by thanking many of you for your assistance. Spending time in this forum has truly opened my eyes to the possibility of moving away from two Apple devices (13-inch MBP-Retina and iPad mini Retina) to a SP3. However, the transition has not been as smooth as I hoped for, and with classes starting in two weeks, I am vexed with what my classroom kit will be. The last thing I want to do is try to integrate something into my work patterns mid-semester. One thing I have noticed recently is when I write something critical (battery life) about the SP3 (especially in comparison to an Apple device), I have sensed a hostility that was unwarranted and unnecessary. As I posted in another thread, I would assume many SP3 advocates would welcome neophytes such as myself. For the most part, many of you have. My point is that these devices are inanimate objects designed to assist us in our work or daily lives. Outwardly cheering for one platform or device over another and ridiculing the opposition only exposes one's own biases and does not assist the person who asked the original question. If you are familiar with English football, my avatar states that I know a wee bit about rivalries. As mighty as the Red Devils have been, I can be critical of them (especially after 13-14 campaign) and not lose any of my passion. I do not have to verbally beat Liverpool down to verbally build ManU up. I respectfully submit that we do the same here. Cheers.
