    Onenote V17 v Onenote 2013

    Yes, 1. Absolutely the best feature & huge time saver. 3. Creating separate notebooks is key. I also had an issue with syncing when my work notebook got too big. I created a smaller work notebook with only the docs/notes i need to access on my phone when away from the office/tablet...

    I've Changed My Mind: The SP4 is Terrible

    Disagree..(.when talking about the SP4). This machine allows for a setup that is the same or if not better than a desktop. Due to its size and cpu power. I've used tablets as my primary work machine since the HP 500 Slate days. A dock can simulate a simple desktop experience that over time...

    I've Changed My Mind: The SP4 is Terrible

    Correct...i had a desktop for that purpose during those 8 months.... since I got the SP4 as a gift... no big deal. If I would have paid my own money for that handicap... very different story. Sent from mTalk
