Sure is not as intuitive and schiit as Android or iOS, but they also have much less functionality when you look at all the stuff you can do on Windows that you can't do on others.

Sorry mate, I think that's just your fault for buying a crappy device. All the Sony hybrids I've tried at best buy and the Sony store are absolute schiit. Tiny trackpads and gimmicky transformations make them unusable.

Oh, and please do tell me where I could get a respectable laptop and Android tablet for the same price as my $300 transformer book.
Asus got the transformation mode thing right. Want a tablet? Push the button to remove the keyboard dock. No complicated levers and BS. Sure it has issues; it isn't very powerful because of the Atom processor, and 10" is a bit small for a laptop and almost too big for a tablet, it's a decent compromise IMO.

Wait really? Did you ever try running it in compatibility mode?
My friend chase has 200+ VNs uploaded to Nihonomaru and has received hardly any complaints about Win8 that weren't user errors. Furthermore, all the VNs I've tried (including little busters which uses the same engine as clannad) have worked fine.


What's more, Key's new Sigulus engine used in rewrite is almost completely touch optimized. Not that most VNs don't work, it's just that you have to double tap for a single click. Not with rewrite though!

Phew, that was quite a bit to type out on my phone! Time to get some sleep so I can catch the train tomorrow. Oyasumi!

Windows and Android both have their own pros and cons. For me, Windows is great for PC stuff like Android modding, image editing, word processing, moderate gaming (Wii lol) and file managing. Android is great for casual internet browsing, manga reading, managing lists, light touchscreen gaming (usually Cytus, Flow) and portable emulator gaming (Phoenix Wright, Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Persona etc).

 

Me trying to get a device that can do both was a silly idea. It was my fault for buying a crappy device.

 

I don't know where you could get a decent laptop and an Android tablet for $300, so I really can't tell you. But it can easily be done with $2000! When I got my Asus eee Pad Slider (which again, was a mighty fine tablet until the LCD failed after 6 months and I got a full refund for it), it was only $399. In that case, $1600 is plenty for a decent laptop. At one point I really fancied the late 2011 MacBook Pro 15" (second hand). Such nice build and hardware! Of course, I wouldn't use Mac OS X; I'd be running Windows! But having OS X would be useful for Photobooth and BombSquad.

 

Dammit, Asus!

 

Yes, but the problem was most of the VNs I played were made only with XP in mind. Compatibility mode didn't help much. Buttons that had to be left-clicked required me to tap it twice using the touchscreen.

 

Edit: exactly!

 

Dammit, Windows 8.1!

I'm feeling too lazy to try and keep track of all the anime that's currently airing because it means I have to check regularly for a new episode. 

 

With older anime, I can just binge the episodes!

I know I keep saying it, but  everytime I say it, I note that it is with my hardware. Consideirng this is a selfbuilt PC, there obviously will be some support issues.

Yeah, that wasn't even a game. Seattle just absolutely dominated.

Ah Yup, $2k is more than enough to get a good ultrabook and Android tablet...
You could get a nexus 7 and a Samsung ativ book pro 9 and still have a good chunk left.

Hmm, is that Asus thing a windows machine too? Looks pretty interesting, but I personally wouldn't buy anything with any sort of sliding or rotating mechanism since they seem really easy to break like that one.

Yeah, most of the English translated games are quite old unfortunately. Guess that's why you need an XP partition for some games, hehe.

Oh, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was some mod you could do to make the touch screen advance screens with a single click, I just need to look into it...

Hehe, if it counts my GR07 has a biocellulose driver and I think it sounds pretty good! biggrin.gif

One of my friends had an issue with his audio driver when he upgraded to 8.1. You're probably not alone.

 That Asus thing doesn't run Windows. It's essentially an Asus Transformer TF101 with a slider mechanism. The Slider was such an unpopular device that there were no ROMs made for it. Fortunately, the TF101 and the SL101 are very similar devices, such that the SL101 can run TF101 ROMs!

 

Speaking of Samsung ATIV, I waited quite a while to see if the Samsung ATIV Q was ever gonna be available from a retail store. It has a 3200x1800 display and it dual boots Windows AND Android! Sadly, I think due to patent issues the ATIV Q was never officially released.

Favourite new show of this season:

Witch Craft Works

 

Favourite new OP of this season:

Gundam Build Fighters

Noragami

 

Favourite new ED of this season:

Magi

Witch Craft Works

Mahou Sensou

 

 

JC is doing really good job in Witch Craft Works. Good story pacing. Good graphics. Good laughs. Good Imouto.

 

Space Dandy ep5.. well, not bad, especially consider how boring it was to me for the past 4 episodes.

 

Mahou Sensou is actually quite enjoyable to watch as a comedy show XD

Episode 2 of Space Dandy was nice but yeah, ep 5 was uber nice

 

I need to see Witch Craft Works, Wizard Barristers, and Nisekoi ep 1 still. It's been on the back burner for a while

 

Don't forget IMOCHO

Space Dandy ep2 wasn't anything special to me D:

 

Nisekoi is quite enjoyable and suitable for lighthearted watch, I like Kirisaki :D

 

Wizard Barristers is however, not so optimistic to me. I think the theme (conflict between people who have super powers and people who don't) is quite similar to Hamatora (which is actually more interesting to me) of the same season. Besides that, I don't like the character design, and the overly colorful and bright color tone..

 

Imocho.. ugh, I am actually in the mood of "lets see where it can go~" for this show. Personally I am not especially pissed off by "service scene". I may actually like it especially when the show has good story to build up the character in me.

 

So far I enjoy Mahou Sensou much more than shows like Imocho and Space Dandy, as its so fun to watch people talking and doing nonsense with so serious faces XD
