Why virtualise your NAS environment?
Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Windows tablet
- Ultrabook-like performance
- Improved battery life from original Surface Pro
- High-res, good quality 1920x1080 display
- Very solid magnesium-alloy build
- Dual-angle kickstand
- Still too heavy and thick for comfortable ‘tablet’ use
- Older Windows desktop applications don’t scale well to the high-density display
- Paint job is prone to scratches and marks
- Only one USB port, no SD card slot
- Not really suited to lap-top use (or other precarious perches)
A major improvement over the Surface Pro, but a few issues still leave it struggling for relevance among established tablet, netbook and laptop form factors.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
