Over the years in IT I’ve experienced most brands in both laptop and PC form and the difference between brands can at times be quite substantial – Even in the same price range build quality can be excellent or very poor.
Because of this when it came to home PCs, I always opted to build my own, it saved some money and allowed me to pick and choose parts – but then prices came right down and it made more sense to buy pre-built systems.
Last christmas I managed (for once) to get a bargain in the sales and replace my old Intel NUC with a Lenovo laptop, nothing fancy just something to browse the web, sync to OneDrive and write posts on. Since then I used its box as a stand, which was OK but not perfect. In the last couple of months our systems at work have been updated which means I'm able to work from home more often, but I needed a workstation.
As you may have gathered (especially if you’ve read my About me) I work in IT support and have done for over 20 years now and many things have changed in that time but I won’t bore you with that! However I will now tell you a tale about my latest piece of kit that I use for work.

Finally! Yep, I’ve managed to save up and get myself the shiney new MS Surface 3 with 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM – oddly they all show it being used with a pen but thats extra.
