Runs nicely on my old ThinkPad T430 (with SSD upgrade) as well.

"While the Office Mobile apps are free to download, however, to actually edit documents and create new ones you'll need an Office 365 subscription. Otherwise, the apps are little more than glorified Office document viewers"
Not true. On small tablets you have editing functionality without a subscription.
I think the large borders were to accommodate the amount of overscan on some cheaper TVs.
Some programmers were able to use nonstandard resolutions though; the Amstrad version of Arkanoid used a full-screen mode for its intro (albeit only displaying a starfield and some scrolly text) and portrait mode for the game.
