Lettuce talk Surface Pro 2 vs Yoga 2 Pro. I currently have both devices (128GB Surface Pro 2 - i7, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM Yoga 2 Pro).
I've done a quick comparison of the screens, writing with pen/stylus, speakers, and quick tests of performance. I've had the Yoga for a few days, the Surface a few hours.
Ask whatever you like as I commence le dump.

So /g/, I know you have some. What are some of your worst repair jobs?
Doesn't matter if you fixed a friend or family computer, or work somewhere that does repairs. Good, bad, funny and pleb, I just want some stories.

In the end, I got a pink slip for not "providing satisfactory service" and my manager is hounding a coworker to make it work.
I hate Best Buy.
Any stories /g/?
Windows 8 Reformatting

So, I'm at work and my boss wants me to wipe all of the computers and re-install Windows 7 on all of them. He absolutely hates Windows 8 (the guy before me loaded the office with Windows 8 computers). I've been doing fine and all of them are installing updates now on 7, except for this one.
It's a Lenovo computer built into the monitor in a one package sort of deal. I put the 7 disk into the drive but nothing runs. So, I went into the Bios to change the boot order and this is what's in front of me.
I've personally never done anything with Windows 8 so the Bios looks a bit different to me. I'm a bit of an idiot with it so I'm curious what to do here.
What looks like I should do is move the CD ROM that's excluded from the boot order into the boot order, but where should I place it?
I know this isn't a help board, but I don't want to mess anything up on an office computer so I'd like to be sure before hand. I appreciate any help given.
