Eisa unfolds funding arrangement

Eisa announced its plans to purchase the consumer business arm of OzEmail, owned by Uunet, in mid February, but at the time would not reveal how it planned to pay for the deal.

The company said yesterday it has narrowed its options to a small group of companies involved in media, ecommerce and network infrastructure, one or more which will become core partners.

"While capital markets options continue to be explored, it is expected that the bulk of funds will be provided by corporate investors with strategic business interests that complement the combined Eisa/OzEmail business," the statement said.

Officials said if more funding is required beyond the core group of partners, further options will be considered. These include private placement to overseas institutions, private placement to Australian institutions, rights issue to Eisa shareholders, and debt finance, the statement said.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
