    Local Best Buy no longer carries I7

    I bought my i7/256 at a local Best Buy a few weeks ago, and, looking at today's inventory using the "check stores" function online, it looks like every Best Buy within a couple hundred miles (I'm in Burlington, VT) has 512s, and about half or a few less have i7/256s as well... I'm almost sure...

    What version should I get? Wait for Windows 9?

    I'm running Photoshop, Lightroom and ArcGIS on an i7/256... If there are bigger pigs of applications than those three, I can't think of them. The Surface handles them fine, and doesn't heat up any more than any other smallish laptop asked to handle these huge apps - remember that this thing...

    So...has the SP3 replaced your laptop?

    I've noticed that I'm not the only Mac to SP3 switcher on here... First-generation Retina MBP to SP3 after 30 years of Macs!

    Photographer considering SP3 - 30 year Mac guy

    I'm assuming that 8 GB is going to be essential for my use? Specifically, there's a nice 8/256/i5 Open Box at my local Best Buy that I have my eye on (it sits forlornly in a display case that nobody notices, and its price keeps going down - I hope it goes down low enough to be worth buying as an...

    Photographer considering SP3 - 30 year Mac guy

    I've been using Macs since 1984 (!) and have always hated Windows, but I don't see Apple going in the direction I want, while Microsoft, much as I hate to say it, is... Apple has not released any touchscreen device running OS X, and doesn't seem about to, either. They are concentrating heavily...
