I use win 10 pro on both my desktop and my laptop.
Have absolutely zero problems on either of them. In the past, many of the comments made by Linux or Mac users were totally valid, that hasn’t been the case for a few years now, and I would strongly argue that running win10 is a lot less hassle than Linux is.
I had a Samsung galaxy tablet. My wife had a google nexus, my tablet was fine, my wife’s nexus was horribly slow when she played games or used the web etc.
I bought a second hand iPad Air 2 for less than £200 a couple of years ago, typing this on it now. While I had no problems as such with my Samsung, the general feel of my iPad is much smoother, quicker, streamlined.
Last year my wife got an iPad to replace her nexus, and absolutely loves it, she rarely turns her laptop on anymore.
She was having problems with her Samsung Edge 6 phone, so I got her a second hand IPhone 7 Plus at the beginning of last week (£249). She hated it. She wanted her Android back, so I got her a Samsung A6 for £130 and she’s more than happy. I inherited her iPhone 7 Plus and I love it.
I also enjoy Linux and have played around on it for years.
The point of this post is simply to say that they are all good in their own ways and they all have their niggles.
When finances allow, I would love to get a second hand iPad 12.9 pro, so I can use it for reading music. I have amassed a fair amount of software I like that only runs on iPads (quite a few synths), then again I own loads that only run on Windows, so it’s handy having both
I haven’t bought a new tablet or phone for quite a few years, and i usually get min 3 years out of second hand ones.
The one thing I do agree about Apple is the rip off price they charge new customers for 128GB, 256Gb etc. I purchased a SanDisk 128GB microSD card for my wife’s Samsung A6 on Thursday for £12.99 delivered.
