I’ll be traveling a lot in 2021 for work. I have to bring along my firm laptop but also want a tablet feature for the plane. My personal laptop recently broke so I also want good functionality since it’ll be used as both. My most intensive use would be Civilization on steam. Do I purchase: HP Spectre x360 (13.3”, i7, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB storage, $950, 2.9 lbs) or Microsoft Surface Pro 7 (12.3”, i5, 8GB, 256GB, $899, 2.4 lbs).

Been looking at the Surface Pro but the instability when keeping it on the lap (or chest when lying down) puts me off

That’s my biggest concern too. I decided to buy since the deals are really good (free type cover and carrying case on Microsoft) and I’m hopeful I’ll be okay with just using tablet mode in those situations.

Surface Pro all the way. HP has always found a way to disappoint me.
