    Windows RT and LTE Modem

    Yep. A portable hotspot is your best bet. There were some threads about one particular 3G dongle having signed drivers that would work with the Surface, but tbh a hotspot is going to be easier (and supported). They'll be a Surface out with LTE built-in soon.

    Microsoft Might be Forced Into a Move that Could Kill the Surface Tablets

    Storing VirtualBox machine on SD card

    It'll be slow. If you can split the VM into an OS vdi and one or more data vdi's, stick the OS one on the SSD, the others on the SD and performance/usability might be bearable. I'd not worry about trying to minimise read/writes to the SD.

    yet another outlook to question

    That's a good point. I've not got Outlook 2010 so can't recall all the connectivity options it supports. In which case Lorna could may have to set her PC Outlook to connect using IMAP. The section on IMAP at Mail Server Settings should help. IMAP is still smarter than POP/SMTP.

    yet another outlook to question

    Problem is the Outlook on your PC. POP/SMTP connection has no smarts - it doesn't know/care if you read the mail/delete it on another device. I would do the following: - Make sure you've a good backup of your email data (including exporting Calendars, Contacts etc to a PST file - just in case...

    Stopping cursor from moving across two monitors?

    There might be something out there. But if you arrange display properties something like below, would that help minimize the chance of accidental creep from one screen to the other?

    USB External Monitor Problem

    Actually, before thinking about power, if it's displaying just a black screen have you configured the display settings to mirror/extend the display to the additional monitor?
