I shall be comparing:

Review: Latitude 5290 2-in-1 vs Macbook Pro (2017)

Comparison between Latitude 5290 and MacBook Pro 13” Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition Review based on competition General Observations • Once on Windows 10 Pro, all Office productivity software work as advertised • USB Wireless mouse works without configuration • Dell’s heat issue is noticeable, making it uncomfortable in tablet mode • Apple’s hinge is better than Dell’s monitor stand • Audio on Dell is poor. Perhaps Bluetooth headset will be needed for proper conferencing General Observations • Battery life was good on Dell, will last 1 full day’s work • Performance was impressive due to newer chips being used on Dell • Touch screen is a nice feature — but training required to fully utilise the shortcuts on the Dell. General Observations • Once Windows 10 Pro is installed on the Macbook, the administrative options are exactly similar to a Dell. • The general feel and touch of the Macbook is far superior than the Dell. • Back to build quality, employees would be happier carrying a Mac while IT Admins find Mac hardware less likely to fail and easier to manage.

Cut your Cable TV? #potongastro

We experimented with an Android TV Box 360p pixelated images on an unstable stream, slow channel switching. Dad reviewed and revert back to Astro’s 1080i24 goodness. You win, Astro. RM2000 annually is a fee we cannot avoid. #potongastro

[June 2018 update]

In the end we cut Astro. How did we do it? PM me for the solution 😉 We get to watch World Cup, Football, NBA, CNN, everything with an alternative solution.

Saved RM 1850 a year.
