00:03:12 – gigabytes and 64 gigabytes
00:03:14 – configurations the ECC ram is better
00:03:18 – than typical ram as it will not only
00:03:20 – prevent system crashes however this will

00:04:13 – Ronon Cal jun 9 2017 it is advised that

00:04:26 – specs release date or pricing details
00:04:38 – the windows 10 creator update promises
00:04:43 – to deliver a significant number of
00:04:45 – changes to Microsoft's operating system
00:04:48 – Forbes Gordon Kelly has been reporting
00:04:50 – on the potential changes in the update
00:04:53 – but this weekend saw Microsoft confirm
00:04:55 – the upgrade pass for smartphones
00:04:57 – currently running Windows 10 the
00:05:00 – supported devices are few and far
00:05:02 – between microsoft CEO satya nadella
00:05:05 – addresses IT professionals and business
00:05:08 – leaders during a site in mumbai
00:05:09 – according to Thomas our car riding on
00:05:13 – Microsoft Windows blog the officially
00:05:15 – supported mobile devices for the windows
00:05:18 – 10 creator of big are the HP elite x3
00:05:20 – the microsoft lumia 550 600 40 / 640 XL
00:05:27 – 615 and 950 / 950 XL Alcatel's idol 4s
00:05:34 – and one touch fierce excel the softbank
00:05:38 – 503 lv the vai of phone gives the mouse
00:05:42 – computer models mchugh 601 in the
00:05:45 – trinity new ANS any oh it shouldn't be
00:05:48 – surprised at this small group of
00:05:50 – handsets represent the newest hardware
00:05:52 – that runs windows in a mobile
00:05:54 – environment devices like the idols 4s
00:05:57 – reviewed here on forums were launched at
00:06:00 – mwc 2016 and are just over a year old
00:06:03 – continued support on these devices
00:06:06 – should be expected the one defies that
00:06:09 – catches my eye is a Lumia 550 launched
00:06:13 – in december 2015 with one gigabyte at
00:06:16 – remand the paltry 8 gigabytes of storage
00:06:18 – backing after one point one gigahertz
00:06:20 – Snapdragon 220 this is one of the lowest
00:06:24 – fetch devices being targeted by
00:06:26 – Redmond's developer team presumably it
00:06:29 – still meets the quality threshold in
00:06:31 – terms of speed functionality and
00:06:33 – flexibility and uncurious to see what
00:06:37 – that level is Microsoft Lumia 950 and
00:06:40 – Lumia 950 XL if you've got a PC if
00:06:45 – pretty much any flavor that runs Windows
00:06:47 – 10 you are going to get the creators of
00:06:49 – faith
00:06:50 – unfortunately most windows powdered
00:06:53 – smartphone owners are out of luck
00:06:54 – because of the threshold that Microsoft
00:06:57 – has said for quality on the mobile
00:06:59 – devices the vast majority of Windows
00:07:02 – smart phones which targeted the mid and
00:07:05 – lower end markets over the last few
00:07:07 – years will have to be abandoned the
00:07:09 – impact of the decision reflects not on
00:07:12 – current CEO Satya Nadella but on the
00:07:14 – previous CEO Steve Ballmer focused on
00:07:18 – ignoring the competition and tying
00:07:20 – everything exclusively into Microsoft's
00:07:22 – operating system the idea being that a
00:07:25 – single operating system would dominate
00:07:27 – the mobile landscape which did happen
00:07:30 – but with Android brothers and windows
00:07:32 – medela has moved Microsoft on from a
00:07:35 – hardware first strategy to one that
00:07:37 – leans heavily on cloud-based services
00:07:40 – accessible from any device with the
00:07:43 – creatives update on mobile Microsoft can
00:07:45 – continue to demonstrate that its
00:07:46 – operating system is suitable for
00:07:48 – smartphones and tablets as well as
00:07:51 – laptops and desktops but with an
00:07:54 – increased focus on its services and the
00:07:56 – easy integration of its cloud onions
00:07:58 – Android and Mikkos hardware Microsoft's
00:08:02 – mobile game has clearly moved on from
00:08:04 – Valmer failure to establish windows all
00:08:06 – noble to focus on the battle for the
00:08:08 – cloud no matter what always the consumer
00:08:11 – chooses
00:08:21 – over the past couple of years Microsoft
00:08:26 – has made a real name for itself in the
00:08:29 – high-end the surface pro one surface
00:08:31 – book are powerful yet portable PCs that
00:08:34 – have found real momentum in the market
00:08:37 – and last fall the company made a
00:08:39 – convincing play for creators with its
00:08:41 – impressive an expensive surface studio
00:08:44 – all-in-one pc now microsoft appears to
00:08:48 – aiming at the other end of the market
00:08:50 – it's rumored that the company will be
00:08:52 – debuting a new kind of picea it's
00:08:55 – education focused event on May second
00:08:57 – and inexpensive computer design to
00:09:00 – primarily run apps from the cloud a
00:09:02 – device that will finally directly
00:09:05 – respond the rapid rise of cokes it's
00:09:08 – called a cloud book according to reports
00:09:10 – and it'll run a new variant of Windows
00:09:13 – 10 called Windows cloud the main thing
00:09:16 – separating Windows cloud from regular
00:09:19 – windows machines running it will only be
00:09:22 – able to run apps downloaded from the
00:09:25 – Windows Store if this is starting to
00:09:27 – sound familiar you are not crazy that
00:09:31 – restriction is very similar to what
00:09:33 – separated the old surface tablets the
00:09:36 – surface RT and surface 2 from regular
00:09:39 – windows machines but that was because
00:09:42 – they ran windows RT the now defunct
00:09:45 – version of Windows designed for
00:09:47 – arm-based devices as opposed to Intel
00:09:50 – AMD x86 machines today when the sake is
00:09:55 – long dead and older when 32 based apps
00:09:59 – are even available in the Windows Store
00:10:01 – all that said two qualifiers although
00:10:05 – Windows RT is gone Windows 10 can still
00:10:08 – run on arm devices all windows mobile
00:10:11 – phone camera and run it so theoretically
00:10:15 – Microsoft could debut a Windows PC with
00:10:18 – an ARM chip whenever it wants and that
00:10:22 – brings us to the second qualifier even
00:10:24 – though the windows store now offers some
00:10:27 – win32 apps
00:10:28 – that doesn't necessarily mean the could
00:10:30 – book will run them at least one report
00:10:34 – says it will run win32 apps though so a
00:10:37 – more likely scenario is this the cloud
00:10:40 – book will indeed have an intel chip but
00:10:43 – Windows cloud will have a setting where
00:10:45 – you can restrict apps to Windows Store
00:10:47 – only which will be the default after all
00:10:50 – if the whole idea is to take on
00:10:53 – Chromebooks the OS will need to offer
00:10:55 – robust management tools a build of
00:10:58 – windows cloud appears to have leaked out
00:11:01 – back in February and those who tried it
00:11:04 – out say it's essentially Windows 10 with
00:11:06 – some modified settings and warnings to
00:11:09 – steer the user toward a lighter
00:11:10 – cloud-based apps that should be a relief
00:11:14 – to users though it may not bode well for
00:11:16 – costs if these machines need a full or
00:11:20 – close to full windows license they might
00:11:23 – end up being a notch more expensive than
00:11:25 – Chromebooks which start at about two
00:11:27 – hundred dollars when does one stride
00:11:30 – going down the route of cheap machines
00:11:32 – barely worthy of the label PC and the
00:11:35 – world rejected the result the neck look
00:11:38 – times have changed though the cloud is
00:11:42 – now King and Chromebooks have proven the
00:11:44 – viability of the model which will go a
00:11:46 – long way toward convincing OEMs to get
00:11:49 – on board in 2017 it should be possible
00:11:53 – to create a cheap windows machine that
00:11:56 – performs well at a few cloud-based tasks
00:11:59 – browsing email and Office apps mainly
00:12:02 – the main challenge Microsoft will have
00:12:05 – with such a machine would be managing
00:12:07 – expectations people tend to expect a
00:12:11 – certain amount of versatility from any
00:12:13 – pc under the windows umbrella even if
00:12:16 – windows cloud in the cloud would give
00:12:19 – books a run for their money it could
00:12:21 – face an even tougher comparison window
