I use a Surface pro when I’m away from the PC. Mainly because I prefer the stylus to carrying a mouse around. I don’t like laptop touch pads
Regarding the first question if I’m honest once you know how to use whatever platform you choose to trade on well. I’d say move to trading live but only witj 1p a pip or something. Even with just pennies on the line your psychology changes and it just makes the experience more real in my opninion.
Anyway good to see another Brit on board
