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

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.

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.
