Description

VMs -> Options (3dots on an exiting VM) -> Devices

The table to show devices only has a Type column with an Options (3dots menu) button
See VirtualMachinesDevices-2018-08-02.png

The Type column seems to be more of a Device column

To view actual device details a user must go to the Options (3dots) menu -> Edit
The actual device info is then shown.
This makes it impossible to see what devices and actual details of each device at a glance

This needs a Design Doc to discuss usability and improving this section

Some initial thoughts

Need to be able to see each device and change the details of each device.
For example, change a NIC Adapter Type from Intel to VirtIO

Add a new column Device.
The info currently under Type should be displayed in this column

The Type column should then show the details of the device
For example Device: NIC Type: Intel e82545 (e1000)

Device and Type columns should be able to apply to all the devices available

Maybe change this section altogether from a table paradigm to something that can show each device and the device details
Add dropdowns for each option of a device to allow the options to be easily changed
