Symantec Norton 2000

Symantec has announced a corporate Year 2000 solution for desktop PCs amd distributed computing environments.

Norton 2000 includes data scanning as well as an application scan database and BIOS test and fix. Norton 2000 includes Symantec's LiveUpdate and Norton System Center for corporations to update and distribute software throughout an enterprise.

Symantec claims the data scanning component discovers Y2K problems in complex files, and generates a customisable report on the findings. The program scans Excel v.3, 4, 5, 95 and 97; Lotus 1-2-3 v.1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 97; Quattro Pro v.1 through 8; Access, all versions; dBase III and IV; Clipper; FoxPro; and Paradox. For recent Excel spreadsheets, Norton 2000 colour-codes and annotates the spreadsheet to highlight and explain Y2K issues in affected cells.

Norton 2000 creates a boot floppy disk to test the BIOS. A BIOS/hardware analysis is offered and a repair rate of 99 per cent is claimed.

The corporate version of Norton 2000 is available now, and a retail version will be available later this year. Cost is $54 per license for 150-199 users, to $79 per license for 10-24 users.

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.

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.

STYLISTIC Q572

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