Make the setup to Windows 98 with UpgradeAID 98

Syncronys Softcorp has developed UpgradeAID 98, a utility that allows people to upgrade to Windows 98 without losing their Windows 95 setup.

According to Marketing Results, who will distribute the product, Microsoft provides only a "time-consuming" Windows 98 Uninstall option, so there is no easy way to switch back to an established Windows 95 installation. The UpgradeAID 98 tool allows you to evaluate software and hardware compatibility under Windows 98 before committing to the new OS version.

UpgradeAID 98 is installed before Windows 98 and uses a graphical boot manager called SmartBoot to permit selection between Windows 95 and Windows 98. The company claims that UpgradeAID98 conserves disk space, because duplicate copies of applications are not required, and does not require hard drive partitioning.

UpgradeAID 98 is available for $39.95; for further information call Marketing Results on (02) 9899 5888 or visit www.syncronys.com

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
