That is what Fujitsu is trying to sell with its new Stylistic Q335, a "mini" tablet that may be small in size and even in specs but was designed with business use in mind.

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Finally, a truly great Windows laptop. Lenovo's YOGA 3 Pro is thin, yet robust. It's powerful enough to handle tasks like video processing and light gaming, yet its battery life is optimized to such a degree that I'm able to use it like I would my main work notebook.

The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro isn't perfect, but it's very, very close.

Windows Schannel bug as bad as Heartbleed, patch available

The tech world as a whole is still reeling from the OpenSSL vulnerability that was so bad that it was baptized with its own name. Now Microsoft might have an equally terrible, or perhaps even worse, issue in its hands. A bug in its Schannel (short for "Secure channel") security package could, in theory, allow any hacker to remotely run a program just by sending a specially crafted network packet to a Windows server. To add insult to injury, this security exploit exists in a wide range of Windows version dating back 2003.
