Hi,

A long-shot perhaps….but I have an Asus T200TAc gathering dust, if that is of any interest to you or your son…a neat 2-in-1, with detachable screen (so in essence it becomes a keyboard plus tablet) very portable….running Windows 8.1 (it was running Win 10 until a Windows update knocked out the touch-screen facility…so I took it back to factory reset and Windows 8.1 where everything works)

For Sale – Dell Inspiron 13 5378 2-in-1 13″ Compact Laptop / Tablet (Intel i3 / 8GB DDR4 / 1TB SSD / 1080p IPS Touchscreen) *Excellent Condition*

Hi Guys,

I have here a lovely Dell Inspiron 13 5378 2-in-1 13″ Compact Laptop / Tablet. Features a 360 degree hinge so can be used in tablet mode with the lovely 1080p IPS touch screen and the keyboard automatically turns off. Memory has been upgraded from the original 4GB to 8GB of DDR4 and I’ve installed a Samsung 1TB 850 Evo High Performance Solid State Drive (SSD).

Connectivity on a laptop of this size is excellent, with a total of 3 USB ports (1 x USB 3.0 SS with PowerShare, 1 x USB 3.0 SS and 1 x USB 2.0), HDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack, SD card reader. The power button and volume control is conveniently located on one of the edges so can be accessed regardless of whether or not the laptop is in tablet mode or if the lid is closed, which is also perfect for when the laptop is connected to an external display.

Fully working, from a smoke free home and is supplied with the original factory Dell AC adapter. Passes all the Dell diagnostics including the longer thorough tests. I’ve also Memtest86’d the memory modules with zero errors found on 4 passes. The SSD has been secure erased and a fresh copy of the very latest 1909 build of Windows 10 64bit Home has been installed. All the updates, latest drivers, BIOS updates have been installed so it is ready to use out of the box.

System is about a year and a half old and is therefore out of warranty but has seen less than 50 hours usage total. Battery life is still excellent giving a health value of 93% in the Dell diagnostics.

Excellent condition with no noticeable marks or damage. The only thing I’ve found during my inspection was an extremely minor hairline scratch to the right of the trackpad. I cannot photograph it however as it only shows in bright light / at certain angles so honestly unless you are looking for it you won’t notice it but thought it would be worth mentioning regardless.

Up for sale is a MacBook Pro with Retina Display, 15″ and it is a late-2013 model.

Everything works 100% as it should.

Seventeenth century French artifact arrives in Seattle for an immersive exhibition, powered by Microsoft – Stories

Visitors can explore the Mont-Saint-Michel through an AI and mixed-reality-powered experience at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry

Museum visitors explore the Mont-Saint-Michel through an AI and mixed-reality-powered experie

SEATTLE — Nov. 21, 2019 Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) and Microsoft Corp. on Thursday announced the opening of a new exhibit, “Mont-Saint-Michel: Digital Perspectives on the Model,” which features a unique blend of 17th and 21st century technology.

Powered by Microsoft AI and mixed-reality technology as well as the recently released HoloLens 2 device, the interactive exhibition transports visitors into a holographic tour of the picturesque Mont-Saint-Michel, a medieval monastery perched atop a remote tidal island off the coast of Normandy, France.

The virtual experience is complemented by a physical relief map of the Mont-Saint-Michel, an intricate, three-dimensional model of the landmark. Entirely crafted by hand in the 1600s by the resident Benedictine monks, the 1/144-scale model precisely depicts the monument in such intricate detail that maps like this were considered valuable strategic tools to leaders like Napoleon and King Louis XIV, who considered the maps military secrets and hid them from public view.

“The Museum of History & Industry is honored to share this icon of world history, enhanced by leading-edge technology, to create a unique experience born of innovations both past and present,” said Leonard Garfield, MOHAI’s executive director. “More than 300 years separate the remarkable relief map and today, but the persistent human drive toward invention and creativity bridges those years, reflecting the unbroken quest for greater understanding and appreciation of the world around us.”

The opening of the exhibit is timed with the 40th anniversary of the Mont-Saint-Michel being designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is the first time the relief map, as well as the mixed-reality experience, has been in North America.

“The relief maps were technological marvels of Louis XIV and Napoleon’s time. It’s exciting to see how we can blend old and new technology to unlock the hidden treasures of history, especially for younger generations,” said Brad Smith, president of Microsoft. “This exhibit provides a unique model for preserving cultural heritage around the world, something Microsoft is committed to through our AI for Good program.”

The Mont-Saint-Michel experience is an example of Microsoft’s AI for Cultural Heritage program, which aims to leverage the power of AI to empower people and organizations dedicated to the preservation and enrichment of cultural heritage. Microsoft is working with nonprofits, universities and governments around the world to use AI to help preserve the languages we speak, the places we live and the artifacts we treasure. For example, earlier today Microsoft announced it is working with experts in New Zealand to include te reo Māori in its Microsoft Translator application, which will enable instant translations of text from more than 60 languages into te reo Māori and vice versa. This will be one of the first indigenous languages to use the latest machine learning translation technology to help make the language accessible to as many people as possible. The AI for Cultural Heritage program is the fourth pillar of Microsoft’s AI for Good portfolio, a five-year commitment to use AI to tackle some of society’s biggest challenges.

The relief map is on loan to MOHAI from the Musée des Plans-Reliefs in Paris, which houses more than 100 historically significant and well-preserved relief maps. The relief map of Mont-Saint-Michel is considered the museum’s crown jewel.

“One of the challenges in the history of art is the relationship with the public. To gain the attention, to capture the view or the interest of the public, is not always evident,” said Emmanuel Starcky, director, Musée des Plans-Relief. “With the HoloLens technology, you have now the possibility to realize immersive experiences in art, where you still see the reality but have more information about it. It will be a unique experience for the American public to discover the relief map, its condition in the 17th century and its evolution through three centuries, as well as reflect on the purpose of those relief maps.”

Drawing from hundreds of thousands of detailed images, Iconem, a leader in the digital preservation of cultural heritage sites, used Microsoft AI to create a photorealistic 3D digital model of the historic structure. Then, French mixed-reality specialists at HoloForge Interactive developed a unique Microsoft HoloLens experience to draw people into the artifact like never before.

The “Mont-Saint-Michel: Digital Perspectives on the Model” exhibit, including both the original relief map and mixed-reality experience, will be on display at MOHAI Nov. 23, 2019 through Jan. 26, 2020.
