Discussion on: What's development like with a Surface laptop? Worth switching from OSX?

I can only answer the questions about designing:

I've had a very good experience designing with a Surface Pro 4, especially when I'm on the go.
Drawing directly on screen has changed my approach to and quality of digital art/designs.

I can only speak of my experience with Adobe CC, though. :( I have tried the trial version of Paint Tool SAI, and was very satisfied with the flow.

I do miss having the shortcut buttons on the side on a Wacom.

I hope this helped!

Thanks for the insights. I'm doing basic stuff in Sketch and looking for an equivalent. Adobe CC is a bit too heavy handed for my needs. But having direct onscreen interaction sounds pretty cool.
