    @NamelessPlayer actually jailbroken iPad will support mouse and provide direct access to filesystem IIRC - but iOS update might brick it, and in this day and age when new vulnerabilities unfold every month, skipping security update is a major no-go for conscious users.

    Which kinda reinforces my impression that jailbreaking is a must on iOS, really.

    What especially infuriates me with mobile OSes, something that Android is equally as guilty of, is that software developers don't seem to like people having jailbroken/rooted devices at all, while seemingly not objecting to people running administrator accounts on desktop OSes. It's a war on open computing that I won't let stand if I can help it.

    Microsoft even attempted it to an extent with the UWP apps and the Microsoft Store, but everyone immediately saw the flaws there - especially game developers, who still publish Win32 executables for several good reasons.

    That doesn't look like the ultrabook keyboard with built in battery. Is it?

    Dude, I bought the base model from some dude off of Craigslist for $500 when the thing first came out! Plain brown box action. The dude worked at Lenovo.

    I might try to score the Ultrabook fancy pants KB dock if I find it cheap.

    no habla...
