I am a photographer, PHP developer, and Windows user. I mean what I say.
My wife, Laurel, and I enjoy photography. It's a fun hobby that helps us get away from the keyboard and enjoy the outdoors together. We shoot fullframe digital, 35mm film, and 4x5 film.
I was asked by Microsoft to tell my story about switching from macOS to Windows 10 and to give my honest opinion about the new Microsoft Surface Book. I received no compensation beyond reimbursement for my travel and time.
I am a proud owner of the new Lenovo X1 Carbon 5th-generation laptop. I previously used (and loved) the Dell XPS 15" 9550. It was a powerhouse. It had a gorgeous 4k UHD touchscreen with AdobeRGB color. It had a blistering fast 512GB SSD. And it had a beefy Core i7-6700HQ CPU. It was quite the laptop.However, it was heavy. It was big. And it was overkill for programming. I began looking for a smaller and lighter laptop.
