How much credence should I give to browser speed tests like <a href="https://browserbench.org/">Speedometer 2.0</a>? I began wondering about this as I debate whether to buy the new Lenovo Chromebook Duet when it is available somewhere (other than in reviewers' hands).

Microsoft Office app for iOS and Android

Jon’s Struggle to use a Apple 27’’ Cinema Display (2010, not thunderbolt, Mini-Displayport) with USB C. Cost of my desired refresh.
