The mini laptop is powered by a 7-watt, 14nm quad-core processor with a base CPU speed of 1 GHz and a max turbo speed of 4 GHz. It's unclear what that will mean in terms of a real-world performance boost over previous-gen mini-laptops which typically topped out at 5 watt Intel Core i7-8500Y dual-core chips with 1.5 GHz and 4.2 GHz boost speeds.
Microsoft does provide one other clue as to what to expect from upcoming hardware: all of the initial Windows 10X devices will be “powered by Intel,” which rules out ARM or AMD processors… at least in the short term. Honestly, Microsoft is being a little vague about that at the moment. On the one hand, the company says it'll feel familiar to anyone who's used Windows 10 thanks to a similar user interface. But since it takes more power to drive two screen than one, the company wanted to decrease the battery drain of apps.
However, I, and many others, are getting pretty frustrated with how the company is handling the rollout of Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Three weeks ago today, on September 21, the company announced on its official forums that a stable rollout of Android 10 was starting for the OnePlus 7 series. This didn't make OnePlus the first company to push a stable build of the latest version of Android to a handset, but proved it is still one of the fastest companies in the industry in that metric.
One of our members had Gigabit (1000Mbps) Internet installed at their residence. On a wired Ethernet connection, they measured download speeds at 600Mbps and upload at 800Mbps, while wireless (Wi-Fi) showed 500Mbps and 700Mbps, respectively. According to our members, the download speeds are normal, but the upload speed is better than usual. To get better speeds, one of the offered solutions was to get an 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) router. Those, unfortunately, are still just making it to market, and can command $500 or more.
