Ultimate cycling device?
« on: April 15, 2017, 06:23:11 pm »
I've seen a lot of questions since I joined about what devices would be good to bring on a tour... Laptop, tablet, cellphone... This laptop might be the answer if you want the power of a laptop but want to save on weight and space. The only downside I see is that it doesn't have built in 4G, and the keyboard is really compact but you can bring a keyboard, mouse, and 4G transmitter separately, which most people already do anyway (I do)

Laptops are usually way too big and heavy to bring on a tour, and tablets are trending larger and larger as well. But many of us still want to use desktop software on the daily... But you can't use the desktop version of Windows 10 on a tablet... You have to use the mobile version... But THIS is a 7" Windows 10 laptop... when most everyone else wants the next best and biggest, hikers and cyclist want to go the other way.

It looks viable... I carried a 10" Lenovo  S10-3 on three trips that totaled about 3,700 miles. This machine is more powerful, has more RAM and HD space, runs Win 10, is lighter and a bit more compact than the Lenovo. Touch typing on the Lenovo was iffy also so this machine wouldn't bother me...
