Lenovo ideapad g575e Battery

Knomo makes high quality (and slightly high-priced) cases and bags for tech equipment. The build qaulity is exceptional and it has removable backpack straps if that meeting you're off to has a slightly more executive vibe. There's two spacious compartments that will fit up to a 15-inch laptop, but there's also room for a tablet plus all the necessary accessories and chargers you might want to cart about. If you want a bag that can also store lots of little gadgets like your phone and Kindle you may want to consider something else, as there aren't any smaller pockets on the rest of the bag, but you could tuck them into the front large zip section.

Booq’s laptop bags are at the top end of the price range, but thankfully also at the top end of the build and quality market.
The Saddle Pro is a briefcase-style laptop bag that will easily hang over your suitcase handle as you rush from city to city. It’s much like the company’s Saddle laptop briefcase but with more room for expansion, so you can fill it with even more gadgets, papers, clothes, books and other stuff. Normally this level of capacity requires a rucksack, but if you prefer the briefcase format the Saddle pro offers a lot.
The Saddle Pro is not cheap at £250 (US$295), but then this laptop bag is built for serious business. It whispers design quality, and its expandable zip adds another 3.5 litres of storage capacity just when you thought you’d squeezed as much as you can into it.

Gamers will take heart that Microsoft is building in features to enhance the experience in Windows 10. These include the ability to stream games from your Xbox One to your PC (great if someone else is watching the television), a new gameplay recording capability called PC Game DVR, and of course the latest version of DirectX 12 which is already garnering praise for its performance improvements on graphics cards and CPUs.

Should I upgrade to Windows 10? Privacy concerns
After writing this article in June 2015 before Windows 10 was released, there was quite the backlash from people who felt that their privacy was being invaded by Windows 10, and rightfully so. Not only is Microsoft now urging people to upgrade to Windows 10, but it's almost forcing them.
The reason appears to be data harvesting. Windows 10 collects a variety of data, some for improving the effectiveness of features such as Cortana. There are ways (as you can see below), even before installing Windows 10 to disable most of these features and prevent your information from being captured in the first place.

By switching them off, you'll have more privacy, but how much more data Microsoft is collecting is anyone's guess. We certainly can't say that you can prevent 100 percent of your data from being sent to Microsoft, bu it's safe to say that Windows 10 does have the most data harvesting of any version of Windows yet. As we've said, this can also be seen as a good thing, since the data is used to provide you with a more personalised operating system, such as with Cortana's search functionalities tailoring to your specific needs.

Should I upgrade to Windows 10? Not if you have old software and hardware
One other concern for those moving up to Windows 10, especially from older versions of Windows, is whether their important applications will work on the new OS. For major software releases this will almost certainly be a smooth upgrade, but it’s worth checking with the software provider, as they may still be working on a new version. You don’t want to upgrade and suddenly find you can’t do your normal work on your PC. The same holds true for peripherals such as printers and scanners, which may require the downloading of new drivers to ensure they work properly on the new platform.

When buying a budget laptop make sure it's got exactly what you need (as well as the best specs possible as outlined above).
Depending on what you need it for, you might need to make sure it has an optical drive for playing or burning CDs/DVDs. Also make sure it's got the right ports such as HDMI, Ethernet and USB – don't just assume it has them all.
Try and get the best wireless tech, too, with the latest being 11ac which will help for streaming content such as music and video over the internet. If you want to watch or listen, also make sure the speakers are decent unless you're happy to use headphones. Bear in mind that not all the laptops here are running full-blown Windows. The cheaper laptops can run Windows with Bing ((it's the same thing as standard Windows, but Bing is set as the search engine by default), Ubuntu or Chrome.
These days virtually all laptops come with Windows 10. Chromebooks will be a tempting alternative if you're on a limited budget, but just remember that a Chromebook is designed for online use and you can't install software such as Photoshop and iTunes on them.

At the time of writing every one of the laptops listed here is available to buy in the UK. However, the budget laptop market is extremely volatile, and retailers tend to secure limited stock of any model so there's a chance it can go out of stock without us noticing – we check as often as we can.
Also remember that laptop makers will make many slight variations/models of the same laptop, with subtly different product codes. These are called SKUs and although the laptop looks the same, the specs are different so one might have a better processor or hard drive. We can't always choose what model we're sent so when you're browsing, it might vary.
Following Android Alpha and Android Beta, Google has always named its Android OS updates after sweet treats, and in alphabetical order. So far we've had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop and Marshmallow. In 2016 we have Nougat. Also see: How fast is Android Nougat? And how to split screen in Android Nougat.

The final version of Android Nougat is out now. It was tipped all over the place to launch in August, and the closest we had to a release date was a Telus software schedule suggesting the Nexus 6P and 5X would receive the update on 22 August. With no word from Google we were dubious, but it did indeed launch Android Nougat yesterday. The official Android blog talks more about the rollout: "Today, and over the next several weeks, the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will get an over the air software update to Android 7.0 Nougat. Any devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program will also receive this final version."
It also says that the LG V20 will be the first Android phone to ship with Android 7.0 out of the box, which is another surprise, since many were expecting the new OS to be the first preinstalled on the new Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 for 2016, which have since turned out to be the new Pixel and Pixel XL, which will be announced next week. (Also see: LG V20 UK release date, price, specification and feature rumours.)
Other flagship Android devices will get the upgrade toward the end of the year or early 2017.

In an unusual move Google unveiled the Android Nougat Developer Preview ahead of Google I/O in order to give it more time to incorporate feedback from developers. At Google I/O the company discussed some new features that we'll detail below, and announced that a public beta of Android Nougat was available.
