What's next for Windows 10? This week's unveiling in Redmond should focus on consumer features. It will also reveal how well Microsoft is coping with the unprecedented shift from traditional PCs to mobile computing. Here's what I'll be looking for.
The PC-on-a-stick will come pre-loaded with Windows 8.1 for $149, or Linux for just $89, when it starts shipping in March.
The software helps users move files from their Android, iOS, and Windows devices to an Intel-powered laptop running the Chrome OS.

The Internet of Things is set to revolutionise the way business is conducted. Recognising security concerns and infrastructure requirements needed to support IoT integration now will ensure that your enterprise IT architecture is ready to benefit from this technology in the future.
The investment arm of Intel has announced 16 companies that the computing giant will take a stake in, at an average of $3.9 million each.
Windows 10, which is expected to be the last of the traditional big bang launches, is likely to complete Microsoft's transition from a software licensing model to a cloud computing one.
Ultra-thin tablets and 2-in-1 PCs, depth sensing cameras and wire-free computing at Intel Developer Forum
Intel demoed a 6mm-thick tablet with depth sensing cameras, new fanless 2 in 1 PCs, wireless charging and a tiny form factor board aimed at hobbyists during the IDF keynote.
Intel has released the latest generation of its Xeon E5 processor family, with a range of features aimed at boosting performance, cutting power draw and making it easier to use in virtualised environments.
It's taken longer than expected, but Intel has finally officially released the first CPUs using its Broadwell architecture. The new processors enable the holy grail of mobile computing: full PC power in a completely fanless package.
Talk about Chromebooks and the conversation will eventually turn to the threat they are to Microsoft and Windows 8. That is true, but the lowly laptop from Google may be a bigger concern for Intel.
The 10.1-inch device includes a separate keyboard to convert it into a laptop or tiny all-in-one desktop as well as coming with a protective sleeve.
WiFi is wonderful, but somehow we are still stuck with lots of cables. Now Intel and others are working to eliminate the rest and deliver true wireless computing.
Computer vision could impact everything from gaming to photography to 3D printing to how we interact with systems in the future.
Intel has revealed more details about the capabilities of its forthcoming Xeon Phi many-core chip, codenamed Knight's Landing, at the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig.
Stronger demand for enterprise PCs---also known as the flight from Windows XP once Microsoft support ended---has delivered better-than-expected second quarter sales for Intel.
As expected Intel announced its 14nm Broadwell processor family, but it is running late and won’t be available until the holidays. Despite this, Intel says Moore’s Law is alive and well, and will not only reinvent the PC, but also drive the next era of integrated computing.
Two-in-one devices, hybrids, Intel juggling Android and Windows are the common themes at Computex. Sounds like a replay of the PC industry's last two years.
The next couple of years will be crucial for Microsoft, but I believe that the company has what it takes to surprise us, and that it still has a good chance of transforming itself into a company that can rise to the challenges and changes thrown up by the post PC era.
When we bury XP we also need to bid farewell to the old certainties about technology too.
