I have been hunting around a various sites, looking for a new laptop. My old one is falling apart, mechanically. But as I am looking around I am coming across laptops with "S" mode enabled. This mode prevents the user from installing any programs that do not come from the MS Store. They even go as far as telling you how to disable the "S" mode in the description of the laptop. I have read some of the reviews and people seem to have a problem disabling the "S" mode. Some even said that MS admitted to having problems with that mode and disabling it. I tried to find it on my current PC, but couldn't. So is this new, or just new to me? I would never consider buying such a device.
