Chime in: What do you think of the first 'always-connected PCs?'

At the 2017 Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii, "always-connected PCs" were revealed. These devices run Windows 10 on ARM, boast exceptional battery life, and have LTE connectivity. Like your phone, these laptops are always connected and ready to operate without notice.

Windows Central Managing Editor Al Sacco recently created a thread in our forum to discuss whether or not these new PCs will be worth the money.

So Microsoft, HP and ASUS recently announced the first "always connected PCs," the ASUS NovaGo and HP Envy x2. We've been anxiously awaiting the dawn of the Windows 10 on ARM age, and it's finally almost here. That's exciting ... but I can't help but wonder how many people will actually buy one of these first devices. They're expensive, and I'm not all that sure the value proposition is...


Sacco mentions that he doesn't think he'd need the LTE connectivity and battery life, especially when it comes at this price, and thinks that quite a few people are in the same boat.
