I'm on my 3rd day of pre-production as was looking for comments on my Spec. It might be too late to change now but any feedback appreciated:
Just to give some usage ideas - I'll mainly be using for Internet, Email, Photo manipulation/iTunes (the usual stuff) - however I'll also be occasionally using for work so I'll be running Visual Studio/SQL Server locally. It'll be connected to a 2560 x 1440 WQHD res monitor and I need the resolution for when I net support onto a work computer (I got fed up scrolling around). I may occasionally play Civilisation, but nothing more.
I want the small form factor due to limited space at home and also I may have to go abroad for a couple of months so I could put in hand luggage.
Well - it's OK? - I'm slightly worried about overheating?
