Just Another Day at Work.

It was another day for Aitn. ‘Another boring day…’ Aitn thought as he got out of bed and headed for the bathroom. Soon, he was on his way to work. He flew, heading for the building he worked in. On his way, he looked around, saw other dragons like him heading for work. He sighed, and continued heading for work. He hated work, but he had to work in order to keep the roof up. Thank gods he lived alone, else he would’ve had to work more. He looked up at the sky, and sighed. Dragons were supposed to be free. But he wasn’t. He wondered if he was ever going to be free. He landed in front of the building, folded his wings, and entered the building. He checked in via his key card, and entered his office. A few other workers were already there, starting the day by working at the office. They all looked so controlled, so stuck in a box. Not how a dragon should look like. But he knew that he looked like one as well. He sighed, and sat in his chair, and started the day’s work. God, he hated work.

########

It was noon. Aitn had barely done any work that he had to do for the day, but he was already tired. He went to the coffee machine and clicked on the Americano multiple times. Soon, coffee was ready, and he took the coffee mug back to his seat. He was hoping that today, he won’t have to work late, although looking back to what he’d accomplished in the morning, that seemed unlikely. But he was tired of having to work late all the time and return to his empty and cold home at 11 in the night. He had already complained to his boss multiple times, but his boss always said that there were always dragons who would work for him, and threatened to fire him. Sighing, Aitn sipped his coffee and returned back to work.

########

It was now evening. He had done most of his work, Thanks to the power of coffee and determination. He would work late, but maybe he would be able to go home earlier than 11 today. He really wished for a cold beer and some time for himself. He couldn’t remember the last time he had time for himself, and he was beyond done with his work. His boss always scolded at his work and him, and he didn’t just scold at him. He shouted at him for his works, and other workers knew that as well. Some felt sorry for him, but mostly others made him a joke as well. But it was too late for him to get another job. He needed a steady income, and it wasn’t an easy thing to get if you’re already 30. Sure, dragons lived for hundreds of years, but they were also committed as well. Hence why he couldn’t change work. Dragons didn’t like it if others just changed work just because he didn’t like it. Aitn, sighing again, looked at the papers on his desk and proceeded to organize it all. He would go home early tonight.

########

It was near 9 when he was finished. Satisfied that he had finished earlier than normal, he sent his files to his boss and got up from his seat. But then a mail arrived to his email. Thinking that it couldn’t be bad, he opened up the mail and looked. Then he groaned. The mail was from his boss. He asked him to work some more, and sent some more files to organize to him. Groaning, he sat back in his seat. Then a thought crossed him. He wasn’t a slave. He didn’t sign up for all this bullshit work. And most of all, he didn’t want to work after he’d done all he had to do for the day. So he got back up, and headed towards his boss’s office. He was going to talk out of the work. Aitn knocked on the door of his boss’s office, and when he heard his boss telling him to come in, went in.

‘So, what brings you here? I think I told you to organize the files I sent you?’ His boss, White, said with demanding looks.

‘Umm… Boss. I don’t want to work more today. I’ve already done my responsibility, and I would like to go home early for once.’ Aitn said unsurely. He didn’t want his boss to be angry, but that was unavoidable, so he was hoping that his boss won’t be so angry. Unfortunately, that hope turned out to be nothing but false.

‘What? Did I hear that right? YOU DON’T WANT TO WORK? WHAT DO I PAY YOU FOR, THEN? QUIT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO WORK! I HAVE DRAGONS WAITING IN LINE TO GET IN YOUR PLACE!’ his boss yelled.

Aitn cringed. Great. Now the whole building’s know that he was shouted at. More getting picked on. More looks from coworkers that he hated. And most of all, More work. ‘I’m sorry. I’ll go work right now.’ He said, and quickly got out of his boss’s office. His boss slammed the door behind him, and he could hear his boss swearing at him through the closed-door. Groaning, he went back to his seat, earning funny looks from his coworkers, and sat down, started to work again.

########

It was near 1 in the morning when he was finished. He was the last one left in the office. Even his boss had gone home, glaring at him as he went home. Aitn sent the finished files to his boss’s email, and got up from his seat. He nodded at the night guard, and flew towards his home. On his way, he looked at the sky, wishing he’d be flying wherever he wished. The sky was where he belonged, with the freedom. Not the crappy little office with the shoutings he got. He sighed, and proceeded towards his home.

########

It was the next day. Aitn was heading towards the office once more, sighing. He hadn’t got much sleep yesterday, having returned from home late. He was tired, and he was done with all the crap he had to deal throughout the day. All the pickings from his coworkers, all the shoutings from his boss, all the work… But he had no choice. Not if he wanted to keep the roof on him. Sighing, he checked in, sat, and started to work again. It wasn’t long before White called him, though.

Once he had gone into his boss’s office expecting the worst, he was immediately met with a face full of papers thrown at him. ‘YOU CALL THIS ORGANIZING? A BEGGER IN THE STREETS WOULD BE BETTER THAN YOU! WHY DO YOU EVEN WORK HERE? JUST GO KILL YOURSELF! YOU AREN’T EVEN WORTH ANYTHING!’ His boss yelled at him. Aitn felt his anger bubble up, but pushed it down. He’d gone through all the crap till now, and he wasn’t about to change that. But his boss didn’t stop there. He ordered Aitn to gather up all the papers he’d thrown, and when he did and passed it over to him again, threw it at him once more. Aitn felt his anger bubble up hotter, but suppressed it again. This had to be it, right? But no. It didn’t stop there. His boss grabbed his cup of coffee from his desk, and threw the liquid at his face. Aitn was drenched in a second. He felt his anger bubble up once more. He tried to suppress it again. But then a thought crossed his mind. Dragons were supposed to be free, and he wanted freedom everyday. Why would he chain himself to this office? Why would he have to sustain all this hatred? Why? So he let the anger surface. He instantly grabbed his boss’s face and slammed him against the door’s window. The window shattered in pieces, and his boss, no, White, froze in shock with blood trickling down his face. Then White recovered from his shock and said ‘Consider yourself fi…’ but didn’t get to finish his sentence, as his head met with his own computer this time. Then his stomach met Aitn’s foot, and White was then a crumpled heap of scales and blood in the corner of his room. Still angry from all the unreasonable beatings he took, Aitn beat White a few more times, then angrily, stomped out of White’s office.

He was going to leave. Fuck whoever who judges him. He wasn’t going to live hundreds of years with all the bullshit he’s faced for the last 5 years.

He picked up his laptop and phone, and on second thought, picked up his computer’s monitor. Just before he left, he threw the heavy moniter at the slowly recovering form of White, and stormed out of the building.

He headed straight for home, and packed up his stuff. He was going to leave. He was going to leave for the sky. Where he belonged.

########

-5 years later –

Aitn was flying. He got a new job. He was now a post office worker. He delivered special deliveries and urgent mails. He now loved his life. He was free, and he didn’t have to work till late in the night. He got a decent pay, though lower than what he got, enough for him to keep the roof up. He had a happy life. And it was going to stay that way.

A Different Day

Reale was working at the docks. He was currently moving a container from a ship to the stack of containers waiting to be loaded on the trucks. The work wasn’t easy by any means, but it paid well.

‘A little to the left! No. no! A little to the right! There! Slowly, lower it down!’ Yelled the supervisor as Reale se the container down. He lowered the container, let the other workers unchain the container, and went to the ship for the next container.

Time skip a bit forward, and he was done for the day. It was twilight as he headed for his home. Well, he and his family’s home. He was the father of 3 hatchlings. And man, the weren’t kidding when they said hatchlings were bottomless pits. They ate a lot, and they grew a lot, though they were still only the sixth of the size of him. He chuckled at the thought, and beat his wings faster. Although was tired, he couldn’t wait to see his family!

About 30 minutes later, he landed at the front of his house with a small thump. He could hear his hatchlings and his mate trying to control them. He smiled, and opened the door, and went inside. Immediately, he was covered with three masses of green, bronze, and black scales. ‘Daddy!’ They yelled, as they clung onto his neck, back, and leg. He laughed heartily, and picked one by one off him and set them on the ground. Then he nuzzled them lovingly, and when he looked up again, saw his mate, Lidya. She looked happy to see him, though she looked tired.

‘Guess they were quite a handful today as well, huh?’ Reale said, chuckling.

‘You have no idea.’ Lidya replied. ‘So, how was your day? And what do you want for dinner? Beef or lamb or chicken?’

‘Beef, thanks. Mine wasn’t so bad. Physically tiring, but at least not mentally so. You?’

‘Hmph. You should look after the hatchlings. One second you look away from them, they’re off to god knows where. They’re a real troublemaker.’

‘Am not!’ A small voice said. Reale looked down, and saw that Olivia, the green, was still standing there listening to their conversation. Reale looked at Olivia and told her to go to their room kindly. After Olivia went, Reale and Lidya resumed back to their conversation.

‘At least you’ll be meeting up with your friends tomorrow.’ Reale said.

‘Ah, yes. That reminds me. You don’t mind looking after the hatchlings, do you? I’ll probably come back home late.’

‘What? Of course not! I’d love to look after them for a change! Plus, they’ll probably like it as well. Probably more than they do with you! Sorry! Joking! Joking!’ Reale said, as Lidya swatted at him with her tail.

Lidya huffed and said ‘I’ll get the hatchlings to bed. Why don’t you go wash up? Then let’s go to bed ourselves.’ Reale nodded, and went to the bathroom to wash while Lidya put their hatchlings to sleep. After washing, he got out of the bathroom to find Lidya already on their bed, curled up. Reale climbed over to their bed, and curled up around his mate.

########

‘Have a good day!’ Reale said, as Lidya left the house to meet her friends. It was saturday, so he agreed to look after their hatchlings. Lidya took off, and Reale went back into their house. It was still morning, so the hatchlings were still asleep. He and Lidya had already told them that their mom would be gone for the day, so they won’t be surprised, but he can already tell that the hatchlings were going to miss their mother. He went to the kitchen and grabbed a glass of water, and drank. Then he began to do the dishes of yesterday’s supper and all the other work.

########

After an hour or so, Reale went to the hatchling’s room and woke Olivia (the green), Jake (the bronze), and Livira (the black). They groaned, and when Reale told them to go wash before breakfast, obeyed. Reale then served breakfast, which the hatchlings dug in eagerly. Reale, smiling, looked at them eating, and ate his as well. After eating, he told the hatchlings to go play in their room as he did the dishes. They groaned, again, this time wanting to fly. Reale chuckled, and promised them that they would go flying after he’d done the dishes. In a brightened mood, they went back to their room. But it wasn’t long before one of them came and tugged on his leg telling him to hurry up. Reale chuckled again, finished the dishes quickly, rounded up all three hatchlings, and announced that they were going on a flight.

‘Yay!’ they yelled, and almost flew out the door. Reale laughed, followed, closing the door behind him. He saw his hatchlings jumping around the lawn, and took flight. The hatchlings followed. As soon as they took flight, Reale slowed down and let the hatchlings take the lead as to let the go where they please as well as hae an eye on them as well. The hatchlings, full of energy, did acrobatic stunts and flew as fast or as slow as they pleased.

‘Dad.’ Jake said, coming to his side after a bit of time. ‘How can I get strong like you?’ Reale looked at him, surprised, then thought for a minute. A lot of thought crossed his mind, but he didn’t want his son to be like him. Sure, container transporting was an easy job and it paid well, but it was physically tiring. He didn’t want his son to be always tired after work. He wanted his son to have an easy life. He wanted his son to be free of danger. So he decided.

‘Son.’ He said. ‘Being strong isn’t what matters. You have to be smart. I know I’m strong and everyting, but I’m not all that you think I am. Sure, my job pays well and keeps me in shape, but I’m always facing danger. Danger of getting injured from work, danger of getting fired if I get old. But if you’re smart, that won’t happen. Or at least, the risk you’d be taking would be lower. I know you might not understand everything at your age, but son, being strong isn’t important. You have to be smart. Keep that in mind, son.’

Jake looked thoughtful, and a bit lost. Reale knew he wouldn’t understand everything, so he understood. After a bit of time to let his son thing, he said ‘Ok. That’s enough thinking for now. No need to worry about that right now. Why don’t you go play with your sisters?’ Jake slowly nodded, and went to play with his sisters. After Jake went to play again, Reale thought, ‘I’ll have to tell Olivia and Livira about that as well. They might not understand yet, but it’ll be better than nothing, and they need it.

########

Reale decided that they would be having lunch out for a change. (He didn’t want to admit that he didn’t want to prepare lunch.) He brought all his hatchlings to a nearby sandwich shop. He himself ordered a chicken-tuna sandwich while his hatchlings each chose bacon, beef, and salted pork. They ate their sandwiches under the shade of the shop, and as the hatchlings demanded that they fly more, Reale let them. After a few hours, the hatchlings were exhausted and it was near dinner time, Reale brought them home. He told them to wash, and when the hatchlings whined that they couldn’t clean their backs, he cleaned them one by one. Then they watched TV together, and then had dinner. Then they watched some more TV (which Reale was bored of, as it was kids program), and when it was bed time for the hatchlings, Reale put them to bed. Exhausted from all the activities of the day, the hatchlings went to sleep easily. Relieved from the hatclings, Reale went to the fridge and took out a beer and opened his laptop. He started to write his diary, and after he was done, just surfed the internet without any mind. Then Lidya returned.

‘Hey.’ Reale said, tiredly. It was near 11, and he was tired. Man, did the hatchlings have a lot of energy. Now he understood why Lidya always looked tired after he returned from work.

‘Hey.’ Lidya said. ‘I see the hatchlings kept you busy. I assume they’re asleep now?’

‘Yeah. Had a good day?’ Reale answered.

‘Yes. Thanks honey, for looking out for the hatchlings. Here. Try it. I bought it on the way home.’ Lidya said as she held out a cupcake. Reale took it, and ate it. It was delicious. ‘Thanks.’ He said, after he’d eaten it all. ‘God, I’m tired. I’ve been waiting for you to come home so I can get to bed. You don’t mind, do you?’

‘No. But wait for me, would you? I’ll just wash up and join you.’ Lidya said, smiling.

‘Ok.’ Reale said, and went to their room. He curled up on their bed, and waited for Lidya to join him. Or he tried to. Before he knew it, he was asleep. Lidya soon came to their room after Reale got asleep, and smiled at her husband’s sleeping form. She curled up inside him, and put her head on Reale’s neck.

‘I love you.’ Lidya said to her husband.

‘I love you, too.’ Reale mumbled in his sleep.

Dad.

‘Yawwn’

Grace woke up. She stretched her wings and body. Bones popped into place, and she got up. She went to the bathroom and washed. Then she oiled her scales, put on some jewelry, and we out of her house.

Another day of work.

She arrived at her office, and set to work. Already there was a huge pile of papers on her desk she had to approve of or disapprove. She was the head of the ‘Walker Import’, which she inherited from her father. Father. Grace’s eyes wandered over to a picture on her desk. By god, she missed him. He had died from cancer a few years ago. But she had memories. Memories from her dragonlet-hood. Memories of her playing with her dad, talking with her dad, playing pranks on her dad. Even though he was always tired, he always had time for her. She missed him, dearly. And today was his birthday.

‘Knock, Knock’

Someone knocked on the door of her office, and she opened it. One of her staff members were there, and held out a pile of papers. ‘Miss, there needs to be approved.’ the staff said. Sighing, Grace took the pile, and closed the door behind her. What she wouldn’t give for a day of perfect rest! But of course, as the head of the company, she didn’t really have any rest. Contacts always called her to solve problems, and other companies who wanted to have contacts between them always called her. At least she made a lot of money.

Grace put the pile of paper she was holding on top of the pile she was working on, and walked over to the window. She didn’t know then, but her dad had been a really good father to the family. She was always exhausted after work, but her dad, having done the same thing, always had time for her after work. She sighed again, and walked away from her window, and sat at her desk.

She opened up her laptop, and looked through the mails. A few important mails from her contacts, but the rest were ads or spam. She erased them, and decided to go through the mails first. She opened one of them, read it, then opened another tab and opened YouTube. Then she connected her laptop to her stereo…her father’s stereo, and played her favorite list of songs. Might as well listen to music while working.

After a few hours, she had gone through all of the mails and most of the paper contacts. She looked out the window, and saw that it was a bit after noon. She decided to take an early leave, and closed her laptop and picked up her phone. She opened her office door and walked out. ‘I’m leaving early today.’ she said to her assistant, and he nodded politely. ‘Have a good day, Miss.’ he said. She nodded, and stepped into the elevator. She went to the parking lot, and started her car. She preferred flying, but she always used her car coming to work.

She drove, and drove. She arrived at her house, and quickly put her bag down and picked up another one more casual. She parked her car in her garage, and walked out the door of her house. Then she took into the sky, towards her family’s grave.On the way, she visited the flower shop and picked up the bundle of flowers her dad always liked. She had it on special request, so they were already made. She thanked the worker and paid her, and took into the sky once again.

Soon, she arrived at her family grave. She walked over to each family member’s grave, and said her greetings and wished god be with them. Then at last, she stood in front of her dad’s grave.

‘Hey, dad.’ She said, looking numbly at the grave. ‘Hope you’re having a good life up there. The company’s going great, and everything’s all right.’ Then she paused for a minute, then added ‘I miss you, dad. I really miss you.’ Then she laid the flowers in front of his grave. ‘These are for you. You always liked these flowers. Hope you like it.’

Then once more, she took into the sky. Flying always made her feel better. And she was going to fly for quite some time today. Before she took off, she looked at her father’s grave again, and said ‘I’ll see you around, dad.’

My unboxing and review of Loving Home mouse & keyboard combo

My unboxing and review of the Loving Home mouse&keyboard set.

So, the mouse I was using broke, and as it was a mouse and keyboard wet, I decided to get a new one. After a lot of searching and walking around, I bought a keyboard and a mouse combo from a nearby wall for 25 bucks. What do I think of it? Here’s the anwer

Here’s the picture of the box.

20170801_172414

Nothing to exactly look at, except for the small image in the corner saying that this keyboard has pentagraph keys. So, let’s open it, shall we?

20170801_172428

This is what you see when you open up the box. Straight forward, there’s a keyboard, and a mysterious box next to it. Probably holding the mouse. So, let’s open unbox whatever’s in the box and pull out the keyboard!

20170801_172509

This is what it looks like. I was disappointed a bit. I thought maybe the top of the keyboard was aluminum, but no. It’s all plastic that looks like one. At least the package is simple with nothing exactly going to waste except for the keycover that I’m not fond of. That went to the waste.

20170801_172646

So, this is what it looks like with my surface pro 3. I think I quite like how it looks. Even though it’s not as elegant as having a type cover, the keyboard and mouse still has a nice finish that goes well with the surface.

THE REVIEW

20170801_173044

So, the experience.

Straight forward, the mouse was a bit small, but I got used to it and after a day of use. The keyboard was… actually great. I didn’t expect much from a 25 dollar keyboard and mouse combo, but the typing experience on this was actually quite satisfying. The keys have a nice rebound to it, and it certainly feels better than a normal silicone based keyboard. It might be becauuse I’m quite a bit of fan of pentagraph keys. They don’t tire my hands as much as a normal silicone keys do, and the keyborad is much slimmer and looks more modern as well.

You might have already noticed, but there are two more buttons on the mouse where your thumb rests. It was my first experience of mouse 4 and mouse 5, and I must say, that I was confused of what they do for a bit. Later did I find out that mouse 4 awas forwards and mouse 5 was backwards on normal internet. But in gaming, it was a lot better than having just 3 buttons. I mapped mouse 4 as knife, and mouse 5 with grenades in counter-strike, and it worked out very well for me. So, I am pleased as well.

So, in the end, I would give it a 8/10, considering the price and quality. Those other two points are gone as the build quality can improve (Mine has a slight crack in the back where the parts doesn’t exactly join well) and the noises from clicking the mouse can improve. It’s way too noisy. I know it’s not a silent mouse, but I can use a bit less noise coming from it.

So, that was my unboxing and review of Loving Home’s keyboard and mouse combo. Thank you for reading, and please, like, follow, and share if you like it.

My review of using a flip phone – in 2017!

This is my review of using a flip phone – in 2017!

20170801_134054

So, I started using this flip phone since I started to attend high school. About 3 years now. What is it like to use a flip phone for years while others use smart phones? Here’s my review of it.

Portability

Well, as you can all imagine, carrying around a flip phone is extremely easy. Mine, being smaller than the iPhone 4s, is very easy to carry around while my LG G5 was a pain in the ass at times to carry around thanks to its big size.

Battery

This is something that you’ll expect well of as well. Mine lasted for 5 days at a charge with average use when it was new. Now it only lasts a day, but still, it’s remarkable when you think of some smart phones that needs charging a couple of times a day.

Accessories

I’ll say it straight forward. There. Is. None. Well, almost none. The seller did give me a case when I first bought the phone, but after that… I’ve not had any case whatsoever. Not that I needed it anyways. At least this particular phone has a feature that allows it to attach a key ring to it, so that’s better than nothing. I got a stuffed whale-shark figure attached to mine.

The build quality & structure sturdiness

The build quality is actually quite nice. I’m guessing it’s because this phone was made with the smart phones, which means it has to be solid, not falling apart. So the build quality is good, and the structure sturdiness… as you would expect from a flip phone, it is very sturdy. Countless times I threw this phone out of frustration, and countless times I dropped it out of mistake. But still, this phone functions well, and has had no faults. All the marks of it being used roughly is on the outside, which is dented, scratched, and starting to fall apart.

The connection to the world

Well… There’s no internet, but there’s this big thing called Calls and Texts, you know? If you use a flip phone for 3 years, you’ll get used to it.

Music, calendar, and other functions

Well, there is music, but it’s as good as nothing as the phone doesn’t have enough storage to store any song, and the calendar is as good as not being there. The only things I find useful in this phone is the phonebook and the radio. At least those two function well. And yes, I do listen to the radio, what else is there to do when you have this phone?

When you transfer files from or to your phone.

Well, you simply can’t. you can, but you can’t view the files on your phone. And, the steps to do are so tedious and mangled up, that you’ll find yourself rather not doing it. So, you’ll find yourself never ever transferring files to your from or to your phone. By the way, that makes it very hard to live in a smart phone world. You can’t view emails, you can’t view the internet, and you can’t do your work on the go.

Phone addict

Don’t worry. You ain’t getting that anytime soon if you’re using a flip phone. There’s simply nothing to do! You’ll rather go out to the library than stick with your phone all day! (Not that I hate books. I’m a reader myself.)

So, that was my review of using a flip phone in 2017. I recommend using a flip phone if you are an addict, a student, or someone who needs to stay away from your phone, but to none others. Thank you for reading, and please, like, follow, and share if you enjoyed!

My review of Surface Pro i3 – in 2017!

20170731_151345

This is my review of the Surface Pro 3 i3 – in 2017!

I bought this surface a few days ago, and felt like I needed to review it as I didn’t make a review of any of the Surfaces I owned. (Total 4 of them, including this one.) So here’s my review.

20170731_151433

The performance.

This particular Surface has an i3-4020y with 4 gigs of ram and 64 gigs of ssd. So, is it good in 2017? Umm…No..? Cause it lags a bit. Again, it’s a Y instead of a normal U. The lowest of the CPU bunch. Or near it. Whatever. But is it usable? Yes, it is. For normal users who normally have 2-3 tabs open at a time, this Surface won’t exactly lack performance. But for mid to heavy users like me who have more than 1 program running and more than 5 tabs at a time, this Surface definetely lags and lacks performance. While it is definetely usable, it also lags in mid to heavy usage. So, if you’re buying a surface pro 3 in 2017, I recommend more than a i3 and more than 4 gigs of ram. For this surface, I’m personally not giving it a pass.

20170731_151504

The design.

The design is pretty good, even by today standards. The surface still looks sleek and professional, and personally, I think it looks even better than the pro 4 or the new Surface. So it’s a pass for me.

The compatability/expandability

The Surface Pro 3 is actually quite compatable with other surfaces. Whichever type cover could be used on any Surface, and it’ll work fine. The chargers of 3 is compatable with 4 and vise versa. The dock is also compatable with each other as well. For expandability, the surface has a micro-sd card slot, 1 usb port, 1 mini display port, and 1 charging port. Not much. If you want to change your ssd, you have to totally tear apart the surface, and the ram is stuck to the board. So for expandability, it isn’t really that good, though you can always use a Usb hub or a higher speced out Surface. So… I’m not going to give it a pass for expandability, while I do give it for the compatability.

20170731_151529

The screen.

The Surface has a 2160X1440 IPS display, and I must say, it looks sharp and bright even by today standards. So the Surface passes with flying colors.

The Weight.

The Surface itself is under a kilogram, which makes it extremely light, even with it’s rigid build. (Of course, except for it’s touch screen which cracks very easily.) So it’s easy to carry it around, so I also give it a pass.

20170731_151543

The speakers.

The speakers are still quite good. Microsoft says that it’s a stereo, and when you use it, you really do feel it being a stereo. With the speakers being mounted on both sides of the screen. The screen, being 12 inches big, you really do feel the stereo. The speakers don’t feel too bassy or trembly, and personally, I give it a pass with flying colors again, as I think this is one of the best speakers I heard on a laptop.

The cameras.

Well…They suck, ok? So let’s just pass this, shall we? They’re only there for looks, nothing more. It. Simply. Sucks.

20170731_151605

The kickstand.

Mine’s still in good shape, but the kickstands do tend to get loose over time. It happened to my 2nd Surface, the surface with an i5 and 8gigs of memories. So… I’m not going to give it a pass. You never know when the hinge is going to give up on you. Even if it doesn’t, it feels way too unsteady as the time goes by.

So that was my review for the Surface Pro 3 i3 – in 2017. It got 5 passes out of 9 tests. Not bad, I guess. My score for the Surface Pro 3 i3 in 2017 is a 6.5/10, as it is quite aged and slow at this point of time.
