    Great tip. Thanks for that, ruirib. I'd been toying with splurging on a new 4K but it looks like that will be for movies rather than computing.

    Thanks for the review.
    First thing I'd say is I quite disagree about system images. A reinstall of the OS, all apps and then data has typically taken me several days. Would your business handle you...

    I'll add that its an optical mouse - if its going nuts like that, its probably not the scroll wheel.
