Apple will launch its new iPad in 30 additional countries this weekend, including Brazil, Chile, Egypt and Jamaica.

Apple's iPad selection page for Latin America shows that the new iPad will be arriving in 13 new countries on Friday 11 May, which are Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Curacao Ecuador, French Guiana, Guandeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique and Peru.

MacRumors reports that several other countries will also see the launch of the new iPad this weekend.

On 12 May Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates will be able to get their hands on Apple's latest tablet.

Apple has not yet launched the new iPad in Honduras, Indonesia, Micargua, Paraguay and the Philippines, but the iPad 2 is being sold at a lower price in those countries while the company awaits certification to sell its third-generation tablet.

The new iPad is also not yet available to buy in China's mainland due to ongoing iPad trademark lawsuits in the country.

On 5 May, Apple quietly launched the new iPad in Turkey, and, as of 12 May, the new iPad will be available to buy in almost 90 countries.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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

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.
