The Core-i7 5557U and the Core-i3 5157U both have a TDP of 28W, and the Core-i5 variant has a slew of exceptions, with the 5257U and 5287U both running at 28W and the 5350U has a freakish TDP of 47W. This higher TDP is almost certainly due to the more powerful Iris integrated graphics in those processors.
The once-mighty Pentium and Celeron ranges are now essentially stripped-down Core-i3s, and all have a TDP of 15W. Most are basic dual-cores, but the Pentium 3825U does have hyperthreading.
A battery graphic with the traditional USB trident logo shows it can be used for high-power charging. The letters SS linked to the trident shows it will transfer data at the 5 gigabits per second SuperSpeed rating of USB 3.0. Adding 10 denotes the newest 10Gbps speed of USB 3.1, which is fast enough to back up your 50-gigabyte music library in 40 seconds instead of 14 minutes.
Further logos will indicate support for sending video to monitors and displays.There’s no guarantee these icons will appear, though. For instance, the USB Type-C ports on Google’s Chromebook Pixel 2 and Apple’s MacBook offer no indication they handle power, video and high-speed data.The device would have been more expensive, so we spent the money on things that we felt would be more useful for the customer, said Mike Nash, vice president of customer experience at HP, speaking of the company’s choice to leave USB video out of its Pavilion x2, a $300 convertible laptop.
Everyone agrees power is a big deal, though. USB today is OK for charging phones and running external hard drives, but in the future it will be good for powering laptops, monitors, printers and most other gadgets. With support for up to 100 watts — enough to power all but the largest laptops sold today — USB power ports should eventually show up on power strips.
Fast forward five years, and it’s going to be nice that you’ll be able to go to an airport and charge your notebook without carrying your AC adapter everywhere, said Frank Azor, the Alienware and XPS general manager at Dell.One thing is not in doubt: USB Type-C’s arrival. While older ports will persist for years, eventually Type-C’s smaller size and greater abilities will prevail.
I expect it will ultimately subsume other cords, notably the power cable, said Endpoint Technologies Associates analyst Roger Kay.USB IF’s Ravencraft said the Type-C transition is moving faster than any tech standard shift he’s seen.For the MacBook to come with only one connector, and it’s Type-C, is about as aggressive as you could get, Ravencraft said. The adoption is happening faster than we ever dreamed it would.
The iPad Pro tablet was rumoured for more than a year: a bigger iPad that would let you multitask properly, with the space to run two apps side by side. A device on which you could be productive, creating and not simply consuming content. That device is now a reality, and here’s our iPad Pro review. Also see: Best tablets 2015/2016.
IPAD PRO REVIEW: PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
As well as being the biggest, this is also the most expensive iPad ever. It starts at £679 ($799) for the 32GB model, and jumps to £799 ($949) for the 128GB model. There’s nothing in between, so if you think 32GB isn’t going to be enough, tough luck. There’s also a cellular model which comes only in 128GB guise that costs £899 ($1079) – the customary £100 premium on top of the equivalent Wi-Fi only model. But don’t forget you also get a GPS receiver with the cellular version.

No accessories are provided, so if you want a Pencil for more accurate drawing or selection, that’s an extra £79 ($99) and there’s currently a 4-5 week wait for delivery. It’s the same delay if you want a keyboard, which costs £139 ($169). See all iPad reviews.
The iPad Pro is available direct from Apple, or you can get it from John Lewis, Currys, O2 or Vodafone, among others.
iPad Pro review
Since the design change which began with the iPad mini, every iPad has essentially looked the same. It’s no different with the iPad Pro. It’s exactly what you’d expect to get if you could magically super-size an iPad Air 2. It weighs 713g – roughly the same as the original iPad – and although it feels heavy compared to an Air 2, it also feels remarkably light for its size. At 6.9mm thick, it’s thinner than you’d expect, too.
The screen is an IPS LCD panel but is subtly different to other iPads – such as the mini 4 – as the pixels are photo aligned rather than mechanically aligned. Will you notice the difference? No, but it means better contrast than it would otherwise have. Other technical advances make the screen more power efficient, too.
But what you’ll notice when you first use the iPad Pro is just how sharp everything looks. The mini 4 may have a higher dpi – 326 vs 264ppi – but at normal viewing distances you still won’t see the pixels.
Colours are pretty much as accurate as the excellent iPad mini 4, and it’s almost as bright (425cd/m2 versus 450cd/m2 on the mini 4). There’s an anti-reflective coating which doesn’t seem quite as effective at the mini 4’s but the screen is likewise fully laminated.
Overall, it’s a fabulous screen that’s a joy to look at. If you wanted to be critical, you could moan that it lacks the 3D Touch capabilities of the iPhone 6S, but maybe that’s something Apple will add to the next version. Also see: Tablet Advisor.
A great screen would be nothing without top-notch performance and the A9X processor delivers it in spades. In Apple-relative terms, it’s twice as quick as the iPad Air 2, which was already a powerhouse. It’s twice as quick in terms of both the CPU and GPU, and when it comes to graphics performance that’s crucial. With more pixels to drive, you need more computing power.
In all the apps we tried, performance was superb. Whether you’re scrolling around a complex wire-frame model in Autocad or retouching photos in Pixelmator, there’s never a judder or delay. Really, though, it’s just early days in terms of apps and games: the best is surely yet to come.
If you’re a video editor, the iPad Pro can handle three streams of 4K video from your iPhone 6S and playback in real-time, even if transitions and effects are applied. That’s something you just can’t do on the iPad Air 2.

Apple claims 10 hours of battery life, which is the usual figure for iPads. The 38.5Wh battery has 41 percent more capacity than the 27.3Wh cell in the Air 2.
In our battery test the Pro lasted for 11 hours, 9 minutes. That’s a decent length of time, and it means it will handle a full working day away from the mains. And for most people who will use it only an hour or two per day, it should last a working week.
That’s handy, since it takes a long time to recharge using the bundled 12W charger. From completely empty it takes a little over four hours.
At £679, few people will buy the iPad Pro instead of an iPad Air 2. It has a great screen and plenty of power, but do you really have a need for this hulking tablet? 32GB of storage will prove too limiting for most people, and the 128GB option with the Pencil and/or keyboard is expensive (that’s ignoring the £65 silicone rear cover). If you’re considering the Pro, go to an Apple store and hold one to understand exactly how bulky and hefty the new tablet really is. If you can live with all that the Pro is a great choice – just don’t expect it to replace your laptop.
