I hate Apple. Everyone that knows me, knows this. Like with most things, I'm pretty vocal about it. And so, I use a Surface Pro as my main device. I use it as a tablet for gigging and rehearsing, for writing manuscript on Finale, for recording or live production with Ableton, for running live effects with Guitar Rig. Yes, I do have an iPhone, but was rocking a Windows phone for as long as I could (seriously).
Because it's been such a great machine that really covers everything I need, I've been a huge advocate of this line of equipment on this blog and to friends and colleagues. I was at a rehearsal recently and a the trumpet player accidentally printed the wrong version of a chart. It happens. But, I was really easily able to do this:
With iOS 11 newly released, I understand that the iPad Pro can now do this too, buuuut, I've been able to do this since Windows 8 came out... years ago. Oh, I can also "snap" windows left and right. And, it's a full machine so I can run desktop apps. And, I can use a pen (or my fingers) to mark things up. Annnnd, it came with a kickstand and keyboard from the start.
Ugh... end of rant.
