HP confirms 7.5% cut in local jobs

HP Australia's employees will not be spared from the company's global restructuring.

Hewlett-Packard has confirmed its Australian operations will not be spared from a global decision to slash its workforce.

“Back in September, the company had made known that 24,600 employees globally, or approximately 7.5 percent of the combined workforce [HP and EDS], will be affected over the course of the three-year, phased workforce reduction program. The impact in Australia and New Zealand is expected to be in line with the announcement,” read a company statement.

“The total impact of the three-year phased plan will be determined relative to operational requirements and will be based on a thorough assessment of our service delivery and growth position.” The restructuring program is expected to save HP about US$1.8 billion each year.

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.

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.
