Buying Tablets and Your Budget

So you want an iPad, but you don’t want to drain your bank account on an Air 2?  Well, if you don’t mind a smaller screen, 7.9 inches to be exact, then the iPad mini 2 is the tablet to get.  For $299 you get a slate with all of the same features and performance as the last year’s iPad Air, right down to its powerful M7 processor, with an equally beautiful display.   Don’t get the iPad mini 3. It costs $100 more, and the only difference is that it comes with Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint reader.

Windows 10 Will Be Free

The last time round, Microsoft charged $120 to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 — one of the possible reasons the vast majority of Windows users declined to make the move.  This marks a significant shift in how Microsoft views Windows, Myerson says.  Windows is no longer a static operating system but a constantly evolving service.“  The question of, ‘What version of Windows are you running?’ will no longer be a thing,” Myerson says.   “Windows is a service.  Users will always be up to date.”
