Paul. Given that its 2014 not 2011 any rationale for using USB 2.0 rather than 3.0? Or is this a typo?

Is 2014 the Year of the Hybrid PC? Commented on: 18 weeks ago (June 14, 2014)

Surface Pro 3: More Configurations, But Not Truly Configurable Commented on: 20 weeks ago (May 30, 2014)

Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Preview Commented on: 23 weeks ago (May 13, 2014)

Good to see a 64 bit Atom device that ships with 64 bit Windows not stuck with a paltry 2Gb memory. Come around to wanting a larger than 10" screen and more storage for my next tablet so too...

Intel Gets Serious About Chromebook Commented on: 24 weeks ago (May 7, 2014)

Irony? Are we expected to laugh at the notion of a 70 year old mum using visual studio? Anecdotally speaking. I've a 92 year old relative who makes extensive use of Excel in her role as secretary...
