FrontPage 2000 trial to be offered

Microsoft has confirmed that it will offer a 45-day trial version of its upcoming FrontPage 2000 Web authoring package.

The company couldn't yet release details about the cost and availability of the trial version, but a Microsoft spokesperson said it will most likely be available to Australian users via the company's Australian Web site (

The trial version includes all of the program's new features including a simpler interface and more options to import and save files.

FrontPage 2000 also includes new page management tools and provides more control over text styles, colours and graphics. Microsoft has also added more template-like "themes," cleaner placement controls, and support for cross-platform Dynamic HTML.

FrontPage 2000 is scheduled to ship in early June. Pricing is $199 for new users and $99 for upgrades from earlier editions.

The application has been designed to integrate with Microsoft Office 2000 and can share the application menus and toolbars.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.
