More purported iPad 3 parts surface

Show only minor changes to the design

Images of what are claimed to be iPad 3 components have surfaced online, showing few changes from the current iPad 2 design.

The MIC Gadget blog has published photographs of what are claimed to be the front glass panel and rear shell of the next-generation iPad, as well as a video featuring the components (below).

There are also photographs of the Home button - which some had speculated would be missing from the iPad 3 when Apple's official invitations were sent out - adding weight to separate reports from last week that the Home button would still be present.

MIC Gadget says that the iPad 3 will come in three capacities - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB - despite reports from Taiwan last week that only mentioned the 16GB and 32GB models. Interestingly, the report claims that the prices will be the same as the current iPad 2 prices, and there will be no 4G/LTE capabilities.

Meanwhile, a report in Ars Technica claims that devices running iOS 6.0 have been visiting its website, logging on from within a block of IP addresses known to belong to Apple.

The data also shows that a device with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, which is the expected resolution of the iPad 3's retina display, has also been visiting the website. However, as Ars Technica has since clarified, the device with the 2048 x 1536 resolution isn't necessarily running iOS 6.

Apple Insider has noted that Apple is decorating San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with a large, colourful banner in preparation for Wednesday's event.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
