MacExpo UK: iPod launched

Apple Computer Inc. is launching iPod, its digital-music player, today at MacExpo 2001 at Islington's Business Design Centre.

The company, which has booked the largest stand at the show, will also be showcasing its revised iBook and PowerBook G4 range. It's expected to focus on its solutions for U.K. education, and to put Mac OS X 10.1.1 through its paces. Also on display will be Apple's iMacs and Power Mac G4s with demonstrations of iDVD 2, iTunes 2 and its complete range of software and hardware solutions.

The 6.5-ounce iPod can hold 1,000 songs and has a battery life of ten hours. It links up to the Mac using FireWire and can upload songs from a Mac 30 times faster than other USB MP3 players on the market. It integrates with iTunes 2, and can store playlists, track and artist information taken from the application.

The iPod is a perfect example of the company's concentration on repositioning its products as central to the digital-hub vision espoused by Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs at San Francisco's Macworld Expo in January, 2001.

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.
