New Compaq networking line for SMEs

Compaq has launched a new range of Fast Ethernet Hubs aimed at the SME (small and medium enterprise) market.

The hubs give businesses faster network access "right out of the box" Compaq says. Used with Compaq desktops, the company claims the hubs will provide for faster access to business critical applications.

The product line allows for multi-user application access, shared resource pooling of hardware such as printers, and high-speed file sharing. Scalability is promoted within the range of hubs, offering a "solid growth path" for "meeting the office connectivity challenges of an evolving business".

The hubs are stackable to six high and can grow to meet the needs of up to 96 desktop and server connections. In addition, 192 users can be accommodated with two stacks of Class II repeaters connected together.

Pricing starts at $520 for an eight-port Fast Ethernet Hub, and up to $1399 for a 16-port Dual Speed Hub.

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.

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.
