A2 isn’t entirely new: one part of it is VMware App Volumes, a tool for spawning apps onto devices, which VMware acquired with a company called CloudVolumes in 2014. Another piece is VMware Identity Management.AirWatch has also been able to manage desktops for a while, but the business unit hasn’t spent much time talking about it or trying to do so on Windows.That’s now changed because Microsoft has added APIs to Windows 10 to make it more easily managed, as part of Redmond’s efforts to make Windows 10 behave consistently across devices. Because Microsoft hopes business will adopt Windows 10 on smartphones and tablets, and because those devices so obviously need management because they are often employee-owned and can be left in the back of a taxi, the same management hooks for Windows 10 on mobile devices made it into desktop Windows 10.VMware’s grasped those hooks, and the result was a short demo in which a Windows 10 user logged-on to a BYOD laptop with their work email address, an event that saw their employer’s preferred suite of apps deployed to the Windows 10 desktop at impressive speed.A2 is a preview and there’s no word on when it will arrive in saleable form. When it does, it may find a fertile reception: the VMworld crowd drew breath appreciatively during the demo today.Sanjay Poonen, VMware’s leader for all things end-user computing, later said A2 is significant for VMware because the company knows that not every business will run desktop virtualisation and even those who do rarely go all-in.

But just about every organisation runs desktops and will make it to Windows 10 eventually. And just about every organisation is also investigating mobility, either with owned or BYOD devices. A2 is therefore kind of a big deal for VMware because it puts the company into play on the world’s PCs as well as mobile devices and the world’s servers.The idea is that all good things VMware did to physical servers, it now aspires to do to physical desktops, starting with role-based app delivery.For a company that’s still looking for a second tent-pole to erect a big new business to stand alongside server virtualisation, A2 is therefore rather significant. Product Roundup The summer’s been and gone already, and it’s the time of year when our brightest and best leave home to enter the hallowed halls of academia. Any young student will need a decent laptop to help them out with essays and other work, but the chances are that most students will also be on a pretty tight budget.Fortunately, every major PC manufacturer has a number of laptops that are specifically designed for cash-strapped students. Most of these low-cost laptops are fairly conventional 15-inch models, which generally provide decent levels of performance even if they don’t exactly dazzle when it comes to screen quality or battery life.

However, there are a few interesting exceptions to that rule. Toshiba opts for a larger 17-inch screen that does provide better image quality for tasks such as photo-editing or post-pub Netflix binges. There are also smaller, more portable options, such as Dell’s sturdy little Latitude 11, which only has an 11-inch screen but provides all-day battery life.And the good news is that all the laptops reviewed here come in at well under £400 – and some are even under £300 – so there’s plenty of choice for students who need to get online and get down to work without spending too much money.Acer’s Aspire E5-511 makes a good first impression. The 15.6-inch display only provides 1366×768 resolution, but that’s pretty much the norm in this price range, and the screen is bright enough to provide respectable viewing angles when reading web pages or watching video. The keyboard feels firm and comfortable, and we like the large trackpad too. The only minor irritant here is the speaker system, which sounds rather thin and tinny.

Performance is a bit of a mixed bag, though. Last year’s 2.16GHz quad-core Intel Pentium N3540 processor is used in the E5-511 providing a very modest performance, despite a burst feature that can boost the clock speed to 2.66GHz.It managed scores of just 1505 and 1892 points when running the Home and Work suites in PCMark 8, which means that it’s primarily suitable for basic tasks such as web browsing and running Microsoft Office. But, to be fair, it also packs in a 1TB hard drive. The Ebuyer sample we were loaned had a healthy 8GB of memory, which will help out when running multiple apps or doing some photo-editing. A cheaper 4GB version can be found but is best avoided.The Pentium processor also turns out to be surprisingly power-efficient. It lasted for 6.5 hours when running PCMark 8, and extended that to seven hours and ten minutes when streaming video off the BBC iPlayer. It may not be fast, but that sort of battery life is unusual at this price and ensures that the E5-511 can still earn its keep when you’re on the move.

T-Mobile US CEO John Legere launched a tirade Sunday over subscribers who make heavy use of tethering on his network.Legere said his company will tell 3,000 customers that they face having their "unlimited" mobile broadband plans cancelled if they don’t stop circumventing T-Mob’s limits on LTE tethering.Under the T-Mobile US "unlimited" plan, customers are allowed to download 7GB a month when tethering their LTE phone – in other words, turning it into a wireless hotspot to connect a laptop or other PC to the internet over the phone network. Once the limit is reached, T-Mobile US reduces the network speed.According to Legere, some users have modified their handsets to not report tethered data, allowing them to access full LTE speeds with no limits on data. In short, Legere is angry that customers are gaming his company’s "unlimited" data plan to get unlimited data, in some cases as much as 2TB per month."This week, I am taking aim at a select group of individuals who have actually been stealing data from T-Mobile," said Legere."If their activities are left unchecked, their actions could eventually have a negative effect on the experience of honest T-Mobile customers. Not on my watch."According to Legere, the bad actors account for "1/100 of a percent" of T-Mobile’s customers, but nonetheless are capable of reducing LTE broadband speeds across the board for all users.

As of Monday, T-Mobile US said it would be using detection tools to spot when customers are circumventing data limits. Those who are spotted trying to hide their tethering traffic will receive a warning and, if caught again, will have their LTE plan reduced to T-Mobile’s "entry level" plan."I’m not in this business to play data cop, but we started this wireless revolution to change the industry for good and to fight for consumers," Legere said."I won’t let a few thieves ruin things for anyone else. We’re going to lead from the front on this, just like we always do."Product Round-up The M.2 format for SSDs seems to be hogging all the headlines of late and the form factor may well be the future for storage for thin and light notebooks, tablets and nano-sized PCs. Yet the market is still gearing up to support it, so devices that can accommodate the format are still pretty thin on the ground, albeit improving all the time.Much more common is support for the old mSATA format and before you go thinking that it must have had its day, both Crucial and Samsung have launched mSATA versions of their latest drives. Needless to say, both companies are not known for launching products into market segments that are going to disappear overnight.

Interestingly, the Crucial MX200 and Samsung 850 EVO are the only two up-to-date drives in this round-up – all the others have been available for quite a while, but remain in the channel for the time being. That said, Plextor has recently launched the M6MV SSD (128GB or 256GB), but our efforts to get hold of one or last year’s M6M (64GB to 512GB) model came to nought.Likewise, SanDisk launched the Ultra II (128GB, 256GB or 512GB) at the beginning of the year, but its UK PR bods told us that it had no mSATA models, just the 2.5-inch version of the drives. Evidently, the mSATA gets poor-relation status among SSD vendors. Or, as a chap from Plextor put it: "it does not have marketing focus".This probably explains why there’s nothing to suggest the other players are going to be bringing newer models to market any time soon, so it looks like Crucial, Samsung, SandDisk and Plextor will be slugging it out – particularly when it comes to price/performance – where the older drives are showing their age.Still, there are different capacities out there to suit and no doubt the odd bargain to be had among this mix of manufacturers, too. So let’s see how they stack up with what could be a timely upgrade for a back-to-school hand-me-down.

The Asus X5000 range has long been a good option for cash-strapped students, and the latest addition to the range provides an attractive basic laptop for just £299.The 15.6-inch display only provides 1366×768 resolution, but it’s nice and bright and provides bold, strong colours. The horizontal viewing angles are good, so you can show off your photos or some streaming video to friends sitting beside you.However, the vertical angles are a bit more limited and we occasionally had to nudge the screen into position to improve visibility. The speakers lack bass, but the overall sound quality isn’t bad, and you can listen to some music without needing to plug in a set of external speakers.You’re not going to get blockbuster performance at this price, but last year’s Intel Core i3-4030U 1.9GHz dual-core processor used in the X555LA manages scores of 1996 and 2384 when running the Home and Work suites in PCMark 8. That’s strong enough to handle most routine tasks without too much trouble, and it’s backed up by 4GB of memory and 1TB hard disk for storing all your music, photos and videos.

Battery life isn’t too bad either – the X555LA only lasted for three hours when running the demanding PCMark 8 tests, but it kept going for a full five hours and 15 minutes of streaming video in our tests. And, at 2.2kg, it’s relatively light for a 15-inch laptop that also includes a DVD drive.If proof were needed that the mSATA format isn’t to disappear any time soon, it comes from the fact that Crucial has launched an mSATA version of its latest performance drive, the MX200 (which we reviewed here).The whole MX200 range uses a Marvell 88SS9189 controller, which looks after Micron’s 16mn 128Gbit MLC NAND. The 250GB (and 500GB) drive also has 512MB of DDR3-1600 cache. Unlike the 2.5in version, the mSATA line-up tops out at 500GB, with a 250GB drive the only other option. Both have Crucial’s Dynamic Write Acceleration technology enabled.

Performance-wise the mSATA drives have the same Sequential figure claims as their bigger 2.5in siblings: namely, 555MB/s Reads and 500MB/s Write’s for both capacities. Both these figures were confirmed by testing the 250GB drive with the ATTO benchmark, which produced a Read score of 560MB/s and Writes of 512MB/s.The endurance figure quoted for the 250GB drive is 80TB TBW, which works out at 43GB per day for five years. Unfortunately, Crucial’s warranty only lasts for three. Still, it performs well and has a nice low price tag – what’s not to like?You may never have heard the name before but Integral has been around since the late 1980s and is one of the few UK SSD manufacturers with design, R&D and testing all based in the UK. It offers a wide range of flash-based products, including some seriously hardware-encrypted SSDs.The MO-300 is the company’s desktop/laptop mSATA range and comes in a variety of capacities from 32GB up to 512GB. At its heart is a Phison PS3108-S8 8-channel controller, which looks after IMFT 16nm Asynchronous MLC NAND. For the 256GB drive, there are four 64GB packages of NAND together with a Nanya cache chip on the PCB.Integral quotes performance figures for the 256GB model of up to 550MB/s Reads and 530MB/s for Writes. For Reads, this proved to be bang on the mark, as the drive produced a score of 551MB/s. However, the test drive’s Write score was a little down on the official figure producing a result of 504MB/s. While its Sequential performance is pretty good, its handling of the small bitty files of everyday use isn’t as strong, as can be seem from the 4K benchmark scores in CrystalDiskMark.
