Take the ShortCuts -- free today if you're quick!

Is your Start Programs menu spreading across your screen? Do you use a few programs all the time and get sick of double-clicking on the icons? Then ShortCuts may be for you. Best of all you can download it free today only (while it's still Valentine's day in the US) from Kiss Software's Web site at http://www.kissco.com/valentine.html.

ShortCuts is a nifty little program which lets you personalise the function keys (F1-F12) and the special keys (Home and Page Up, for example) to perform functions like launching applications. With 42 keys to customise - there's an option to use the Shift key with the function and special keys - the makers of ShortCuts suggest a range of possibilities: you can set the keys to shut down the computer, run macros, go to a Web site, open documents and dial-up your ISP.

Setting it up is as easy as clicking selections in a wizard, and the program can be turned on and off if you want to use a function key which is specific to an application. The advantage of this program is the fact that you don't have to use the Start menu, which may have increased to three times the size since you bought your PC if you have a lot of programs installed. It's also fun to show your friends and workmates what you can do just by pressing one key.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
