    In all seriousness yes of course you can and if you do you sould contact UKTI they might give you some money

    I got funding to travel to California when I was trying to get plan B going a few years ago. 50% of travel plus some other funding, we went for 6 weeks.

    looks like I can settle for a chuwi Hi12 .... if it is on par with my Linx1010B

    or a Dell Venue 11 pro

    Glad to see the public sector utilising tax payers money responsibily

    Best Smart TV money can buy. Couple it up with a Bose surround sound system and you're future proof

In fact you better be damn sure about your lift detentions and corridor sizes before you order one because the big ones come on a scaffolding rig that cannot be tipped.

    It's likely to interfere with the cooling which is already questionable being all passive

    I found that it was okay if I used it as a tablet, you can flip the keyboard cover over completely as a base stand so actually, works quite nicely. Downside is that I have to use the on-screen keyboard and the pen but have gotten use to it.

    Have to echo what others have said, as I found the Surface Pro 3 a bit uncomfortable on the lap......MyCo had a pow-wow about it and went for a Surface Book to replace it

    But i guess having £60ish billions of dept is a valid reason for cutting corners...
    So the consumer brands then. I've not seen the same issues with the business machines probably because the 3 year next day on site repair encourages better quality control.

    I was looking for a complete detachable 2-in-1 rather than the Yoda style which could make the thickness unbearable in tablet mode.

    The Latitude does fit the bill but I guess I was only willing the pay that type of price only on a surface pro 4... A search on the dell website has lead me to a Venue 11 Pro which looks cheap enough on fleabay
    Hint, Dell outlet...

    Surface pro 4 didn't work out for me for couch potato mode, so i went for the surface book despite the eye watering price tag.

    If you are after something cheaper look at http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/yoga/
