AnandTech Podcast #32 - Ian and Brett are talking about laptops. It's been an exciting few weeks for laptops, as we discuss some of our more detailed findings related to Core M and the problem surrounding the material construction of low powered devices and how this relates to performance. Brett is also on hand to discuss the wheelings and dealings of Microsoft's BUILD conference which he attended, including discussions regarding Windows 10 updates, Android App support, Objective C support and Hololens. To wrap it all up, we discuss the Surface 3, both in terms of the technical specifications, our review, and how it positions Microsoft in a competitive market against a number of their partners.

    Also Please keep the podcasts coming. At least 2 per month would be awesome.

    I'm pretty sure I have a lot better bandwidth than Ian is why I was asking. We want to do more of them that's why we're trying to make it a bit easier to produce. Thanks for the feedback!
