Really? I wouldn't call it terrible for a laptop or tablet. I'd call it good for a tablet and great for a laptop...
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.
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.
Dammit, Windows 8.1!
