Apple/Windows integration tools for iMessage, Photos etc

Has anyone tried these tools at all? I’m moving away from a MBA to a Yoga so trying to fill some potential holes!

For Notes I’m aiming to use a PWA for and see how that goes!

I haven’t. I use the terrible iCloud for Windows and iTunes for MP3 and Apple Music playback. Honestly, they work well enough, but you need a valid copy of Outlook for mail, calendar, and contacts.

Edited to add, I needed Azure Remote Desktop and it wouldn’t work with a smart card and the M1 MBA. So I switched to a G14 Zephyrus and it has been a fairly smooth transition. But I should also point out that I hated it when my MBA tried to answer my incoming call from my iPhone, etc.,

I like my laptop to be my laptop, my ipad to be my tablet, and my iphone to be my phone.

Also, for Notes, I switched to a cross-platform notes app (in my case Standard Notes as I wanted encryption and the ability to self-host at some point). It could be tough using a PWA for notes honestly. That is adding quite a bit of friction.
