I know what I want for a device

I’ve looked at a lot of devices now and I know what I want.  Must have:

  • As fast of a chip as I can get.  At least 6-8 core, 64bit
  • At least 3GB of (DDR3+) ram, prefer 4GB.  DDR4 would be better
  • At least 32GB of Rom
  • USB 3.0 to enable fast access to USB devices
  • Gigabit lan and dual channel wifi
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Support for HDMI 2  4K@60fps

Going through a number of review websites, it is remarkable that a number of really highly rated devices are well under this spec – e.g. quad core with 3/16 or 2/32, and a number of them don’t support usb 3 or the latest version of android.

Narrowing it doesn I think I know what I want… more soon.
