Victorian Govt launches free Net training for 55+

One hundred Victorians over the age of 55 will be given vouchers for free Internet training and Net access under a state government scheme launched today.

Under the ACE (Adult and Community Education) Internet Voucher Scheme, vouchers will be given to the first 100 eligible people to call (03) 9637 2684.

Each voucher provides for five hours of Internet training and 10 hours of free Internet access at community education organisations in Victoria.

"Older learners are the fastest growing demographic group using making use of computers. This voucher is their ticket to pursue that interest," said Phil Honeywood, Minister for Tertiary Education and Training, at the launch today.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.

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.
