In this first part of our "Future of Tech" series, we'll call some predictions about the next generation of PCs. Rather than dreaming far into the future, we'll try to go for the practical and feasible... evolutionary steps that we could easily see happen in the next five to fifteen years.

Microsoft has come up with strange ideas over the years. Their latest one is running Windows on ARM (again), with the help of Qualcomm and some daring manufacturing partners to bring a new OS variant that can emulate x86 software. We get hands on with the first Windows on ARM device, the HP Envy x2, for some serious benchmarking.
