Fujitsu offers new pen-tablet PC

Available through resellers and system integrators, pricing for the Stylistic 3500 starts at $US3,899. The machine weights 1.46 kilograms, runs on an Intel. Celeron 500MHz processor and contains 15GB of memory that can be expanded to 256MB.

It also features a new reflective 10.4-inch TFT (thin film transistor) SVGA (Super Video Graphics Array) outdoor viewable colour display, that Fujitsu said combines the outdoor brightness found in passive reflective screens with high-contrast and fast speed of active matrix screens. The Stylistic 3500 also is available with an indoor-only display. Both screen options use technology that reduces glare and reflection.

A 56Kbps (bits per second) V.90 modem is standard, as is integrated 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet. The computer also has four optional docking alternatives: a mini-dock which allows full desktop functions with ports for USB (Universal Serial Bus), a PC card, keyboard, mouse, external monitor, floppy drive, serial device and Ethernet; a high-usage dock; a wall-mount cradle, and a portable port replicator.

The pen-tablet PC uses higher capacity Lithium ion battery technology so that the battery will last up to four hours. Using a lower voltage processor and a higher-capacity battery means a 30 percent boost in battery life over the previous version of the Stylistic, Fujitsu said in a news release.

The mobile PC uses Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000 Professional or Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. IT supports Windows Pen Services and Communication Intelligence's PenX operating system extensions for handwriting recognition.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
