Question about Tablets....

Recommended Posts

Basically, I am looking for one that I can use at ReaperCon to take pics, check email forums, Skype and hangouts.

Some simple card type games.

Not into reading on a device, I like books...

And watching a movie, naaaah...

The only downside to my Surface is that Google Hangouts don't seem to work with IE. And the Google+ client should be able to join the hangout, if I could just figure out how. Maybe it's just that I've got an older one, but just wanted to warn you that I haven't figured out a way to join.


I can start a hangout, but I can't figure out how to join one already in progress via the link.

The Surface will probably work for your needs. Pegazus, how well does Chrome run on your Surface? Ron

Not available. I don't have a Surface Pro, just the Surface with Windows 8RT. I don't find any version that's been ported to 8RT.
Can you run Windows 10 on your Surface?

Well, I figure I would have been bothered incessantly for the past six months should I be able to upgrade, so I think that's a "no".

As someone who has had to do the upgrades on demo units, I can divulge that the Surface 3 and Surface Pro will both run Windows 10, though you definitely want the Pro if you are going to try running 10, it is sloooooooooooowwwwww on the 3.

      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......

      So I decided to paint this gur next, but as I have Hair, I wanted him to as well, as he may end up as my PC...(Sculpting here)
      So after the GS dried, Primed with Stynylrez Black prime.
      GW Scorched Brown in his eyes, Reaper Linen white, WC One Coat Blue, then SC 75 Arabic Shade overall.

      So at Reapercon 2018, I scored the Duskwarden poster of Thregan Helmsplitter for my work at the auction, and of course, being the Duskwarden*, I have a couple of the minis as well.
      So I was thinking of using him as my next PC, but as I have hair, I wanted my mini to also...
      While working on another project with GS, as usual, I made to much, and decided to bite the bullet and do his hair...
      What do you think?

      Comments appreciated!
      Doesn't Jacob Knochengard look like me???
