Dana from Redondo Beach, CA

Dana is looking at getting the Blackberry Classic smartphone on T-Mobile, and she wants a new laptop with Windows 7. She's looking at an HP with an Intel Core i7. Are those choices good? Leo says those are good, sure. He's not really a huge HP fan, preferring Dell, Asus, and even Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 instead. The Surface has a great screen, but the keyboard isn't all that great. But it is nice that it can convert from a laptop to tablet.

Should I run as a limited user on my Surface Pro 2?

John from Crane Hill, AL

John just got a brand new Surface Pro tablet. He decided on the Surface Pro 2 because the powered keyboard for the new Surface 3 won't be ready for a few months. Leo says that people who have bought the Surface Pro 3 really like it. Leo's not much a fan because he prefers a laptop.

Does he have to set up a separate account as a limited user like on desktops? Leo says yes. It's kind of a pain, but it's the right thing to do. What about encrypting the hard drive? Leo says that the Surface Pro 2 may be encrypted by default.
