My wife got an Asus laptop but I also got her an iPad pro for the actual drawing stuff.  And it's pretty damn amazing for that by the way.  But not everyone wants to buy 2 things.  The iPad apps are more than likely superior though.

I almost went for a SurfaceBook Pro, they seemed pretty nice. Ended up with a macbook again though.

They seem nice, especially if portability and weight is a concern. I feel like for the price you could better spec'd laptop, like a Dell XPS-15.

Almost bought one myself.  They are really nice laptops/tablets.  Powerful, very slim.  Screen isn't huge but you could always connect it to monitors.

There is a place for all levels of quality and price points.  What SHOULD have happened years ago is that the US (and others) should be giving OUR corporations the same free shipping perk China has.  Even the playing field a bit.  BTW found a cool clothier in Michigan.  https://www.stormykromer.com  Damn fine quality and very reasonable pricing.

The Senn PXC500 can be had on sale or refurb regularly at over half off.  Check ebay.  I prefer them over Bose due to build quality, option package, and replaceable pads and batteries.  Been using a set at work for 3 years and a set at home for Laura for ~ a year.

I guess I've come to the realization that maybe we shouldn't be paying so little for all these things.  Places like Walmart and Amazon drive prices down because labor gets shifted overseas or the materials are complete bullshit.  I've stopped buying clothes at places like that because they don't last.  They look good for like 2 months and then they've either shrunk so much or they look so worn that it's just not worth it.  I'd rather spend another $10/shirt and have it actually last. 

I don't know... I just think we've all gotten sucked into this 'now and cheap' culture and it's turning us all into garbage collectors and wasteful people.

Something I've been preaching for a few years now! I will post more tomorrow
