ASUS A32-U46 Battery

Toshiba Satellite C40-C review: Battery life You won’t need to be too proactive with your battery saving, though, as the dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Celeron N3050 only sips at the battery even when you’re pushing it to the limit, with a TDP of 6W. This helped the C40-C record a score of 7hrs 16mins in the looping-video battery test, and it achieved even better results with non-media tasks. This, plus the C40-C’s reasonable 1.7kg weight, makes it a superb companion on the road, and a worthy second device if your home laptop is too bulky to travel with.Build quality is impressive for the price, with a stylish black, brushed-metal-style texture on the keyboard tray and lid. It feels solid, although if you push hard enough you will see the plastic flex. The keyboard is responsive, if not the most satisfying to type on, while the touchpad and attached buttons are sensitive and willing to obey various multi-fingered gestures, such as scrolling with two fingers.

You get only one USB 3 port and two more USB 2 connectors for peripherals, along with a full-sized HDMI output and an SD card reader to supplement the meagre 32GB of built-in storage. There’s no Ethernet port, so you’ll have to rely on the single-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.Of course, you don’t get an awful lot of grunt for multimedia tasks with such a low TDP, as our tough photo and video benchmarks prove. An overall score of 7 is a warning to those who edit photos in the field – you’ll spend an awful lot of time twiddling your thumbs. If you’re in the market for a budget laptop for lightweight work on the go, however, the Toshiba Satellite C40-C merits serious consideration. It may not be powerful, but its long battery life, decent build quality and near-unbeatable price will win over many.

Computing has revolutionised healthcare, and continues to do so at a phenomenal rate. While successful diagnosis is based primarily on the experience and intuition of medical practitioners, the more easily doctors can check their theories against databases of known cases, or a patient’s history, the more reliably and quickly that diagnosis can be confirmed.It’s also vital that patient records are kept up-to-date accurately with new symptoms and observations, as healthcare is always a collaboration between multiple medical practitioners.The computer in the doctor’s surgery has opened up a world of information access that has only just begun to be realised. As far back as 1966, the concept of expert systems helping with medical matters was being experimented with.

A fully computerised doctor is still in the realm of science-fictionJoseph Weizenbaum’s infamous ELIZA was more a chatterbot than a true repository of medical expertise, but still pointed towards future possibilities. A fully computerised doctor is still in the realm of science-fiction for the time being. But, if computing has had a significant impact on the doctor’s surgery, mobile technology has further extended the flexibility of medical practice, and this is a trend set to grow immensely in the near future.However, most EHR systems are designed to be viewed on a reasonably large screen, using a keyboard and mouse to navigate – so a smaller touchscreen can pose considerable limitations.Also, whilst the vast majority of medical institutions have Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, very few of them allow BYOD devices to have unrestricted access to network resources, placing considerable restrictions on which systems can be used. An Aruba Networks survey in 2012 put the figure as low as 8%. For this reason, more traditional mobile devices will remain the most popular form of computing for doctors for some time to come, according to Spyglass Consulting Group.

An ideal mobile device for a doctor needs to be robust, with the ability to be centrally managedAn ideal mobile device for a doctor needs to be robust, with the ability to be centrally managed. It also needs to be secure, because it will be host to patient records in digital form, which contain sensitive private information. If a considerable amount of text data needs to be entered, a professional-grade notebook like the HP EliteBook range would be ideal. However, the best of both worlds is provided by the HP Pro x2 612 G1, satisfying both data input needs and tablet-focused portability.The Pro x2 612 G1 sports an Intel Core i3 or i5 ultra-low voltage processor and Intel HD 4200 graphics, for high performance with low power consumption. Up to 8GB of DDR3 memory is also included. However, the detachable tablet screen is the most significant feature. The 12.5in screen can be removed from the keyboard base and used separately as a fully fledged tablet, and there’s an integrated Wacom pen option to aid this scenario.

This allows the doctor to access and input information in the much more relaxed and casual tablet fashion when with a patient. But the Pro x2 612 G1 is still a notebook when the screen is docked, so can be used comfortably for everyday data entry and office duties at a desk.This is very much a corporate-grade notebook, tooComprehensive Wi-Fi connectivity is available, with 802.11a, b, g, n, and the latest 802.11ac all supported, plus optional HSPA+ or 4G mobile data. This is very much a corporate-grade notebook, too. There’s a TPM 1.2 chip built in for hardware-level encryption key storage, as well as smartcard and optional fingerprint reading.With the 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 Professional installed as an option, the Pro x2 612 G1 is designed to fit seamlessly into a corporate network with full compliance and the ability to participate in centralised management and updating. However, it’s also optimised for tablet-style touch screen usage.

A flexible, portable solution such as the HP Pro x2 612 G1 can save time when entering information. It can also make the infamous illegibility of doctors’ handwriting a thing of the past, as electronically entered medical notes will be legible 100% of the time. So the introduction of portable computing into the doctor’s office has very real value – not just for the efficiency and convenience of the doctor, but also for the quality of care provided.Earlier this year, Microsoft unveiled its vision for the future of Windows on the desktop, and Windows 10 proved a great improvement over Windows 8.1. Now it’s the turn of Microsoft’s mobile OS and, after months of user feedback, it’s finally available in its finished, official guise: Windows 10 Mobile.

Arguably, it’s an even bigger deal than Windows 10 on the desktop. The introduction of Universal apps, which run the same code on phone and desktop, is something that’s never been attempted before in the mobile space, and it could eventually turn the smartphone world on its head. The changes Microsoft has made to bring the UI of the phone in line with that on the desktop could also help broaden the appeal of Windows 10 Mobile.The first people to experience the final, complete version of Windows 10 Mobile – aside from those on the Insider Program – will be anyone who buys a Microsoft Microsoft Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL smartphone. Owners of existing handsets will also be upgraded, but this will happen in stages.The phones in the first wave of upgrades are listed below. The final complete list of phones set to receive the upgrade hasn’t been finalised yet, but Microsoft has said it has ambitions to upgrade all handsets currently running the Denim update to Windows 10.
