Windows 8.1 update may speed up budget tablets

We may not have to wait long to get that Windows 8.1 interface tweak, after all. ZDNet hears from sources that Microsoft wants to release the upgrade, tentatively named Update 1, on March 11th. The patch may let you do more than pin Windows Store apps, too: Redmond's developers will reportedly be able to optimize Windows' memory and storage footprints for lower-end tablets. ZDNet also reports that the software will be more business-friendly, though it's unclear how. We wouldn't be surprised if the launch details change, but it would certainly be nice to get a significant Windows refresh at the same time that we're picking up Titanfall.
