I fully support the US DoJ's efforts

Microsoft already has such a stranglehold on the OS market that monopolising the Internet browser market would seem like a logical step. Not that I'm supporting Microsoft, mind you.

I fully support the US DoJ's efforts to try to maintain freedom of choice for consumers.

Microsoft obviously believes its in a position to bend the will of consumers to using IE4, whether they want it or not, and this sort of aggressive competitor-squashing should not be endorsed. We need fair competition to "keep the bastards honest".

If the kind of thing Microsoft is attempting is allowed to continue unchecked, next thing you know, companies will be building roads and allowing only one make of car to drive on them!

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.

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.
