Microsoft Step By Step: Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition

Anyone familiar with Windows can probably nut out the OS differences between Me and 98, but some of the special features may be worth a walk through for the first-time Windows user. This book would be most useful for such people, with its hands-on focus, and is a fine reference tool.

The included CD-ROM features practice files that are designed to be used with the book. The book guides the reader through essentials such as connecting to the Internet and setting up an e-mail account and address. Other topics such as home networking are also covered.

The multimedia component of Me is one of its big selling points, so it is no surprise that one-third of the book is dedicated to the OS's multimedia additions such as Movie Maker.

The book is ideal for beginners, and it provides opportunities to test the user's skills and understanding. The chapters focus on getting the most from this operating system and taking advantages of all the features present in Windows Me. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to know more than just how to find Windows Explorer and change the colour of the desktop.

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.
