Microsoft has announced the release of the second beta of Office 2000, the next version of Office, which is expected to be released to market early next year.

Two versions of the second beta are available -- one for consumers, the Consumer Preview Program (a full copy of beta 2 for end users), and one for IT professionals, the Corporate Preview Program (including tools and information for the deployment of Office 2000 in corporate organisations).

According to Microsoft, the beta will go to around 700,000 users participating in the evaluation program.

To obtain one of the two preview programs it will cost $49.95 for postage, handling and support. Visit http://www.microsoft.com.au/australia/office/cpp/ for further information

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.
