Hot Key is now distributing two new software products from Traveling Software, catering for the PC support professionals and end users requiring remote access solutions.

LapLink Tech ($299 RRP) targets corporate technical support providers, providing users with the ability to set up and upgrade PCs, solve problems and work against viruses, all from a remote location. Simultaneous connections to PCs, simultaneous guest and host functionality, and bi-directional printing features are also offered. Disk cloning is provided with Ghost Special Edition, Dr Solomon's WinGuard is integrated for virus protection and simultaneous voice chat whilst controlling a PC remotely enables support staff to talk to users whilst diagnosing and solving technical problems.

Remote DeskLink ($99 RRP) is the second product being launched by Hot Key and targets Windows 95, NT and 98 users wanting to access their work PC remotely. The product features easy set up -- according to Hot Key, DeskLink automatically configures modems and network devices for remote access use. Users can customise the program to increase access speed and performance by limiting the number of colours displayed, filtering large program bitmaps and storing and retrieving images from the hard drive of the home PC.

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.
