Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Tis the season to spend money and if you are considering a notebook or slate, you should consider the popular Lenovo Yoga. Lenovo just released the Yoga 2 Pro with the latest generation Intel Haswell processors. This form factor device works in a variety of configurations from standard notebook mode, to a slate or tent mode. Very nice.
