Price slash on satellite hardware

Satellite Internet access provider IHUG, has announced a price cut of more than 50 per cent on a hardware package for its SatNet service, including a 65cm satellite dish and a high speed MPEG decoder card.

From tomorrow, the package will be priced at $299, down from $650, and enables users to access the SatNet service which can offer speeds up to 400Kbps, says IHUG.

Customers of SatNet dial-up to one of IHUG's points of presence using a modem, and the network then routes all incoming traffic to their satellite dish, and all outgoing data through their modem. The service can cost from $39.95 per month.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
