Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional At a Glance

This book is aimed at users who already have Windows 2000 Professional installed on their PC, with an emphasis on those working within a corporate network.

It deals with all user aspects of the operating system, focussing on getting the most from the Windows 2000 interface. There is appropriate help for both novice users and those who have up-graded to Windows 2000 from a previous version of Windows. System administrators and those wanting to perform complex tasks in Windows 2000 will need to look elsewhere, but it is suitable for just about everyone else.

The chapters can be read in any order. All the fundamental areas of the new OS are covered, including file management and sharing, using programs, printing, multimedia, using e-mail, fax & news, taking files on the road, customising the interface and administration tasks. There are extensive screen shots, step-by-step guides and graphical help.

According to the authors, the aims of the book are to:

(i) Quickly help you to do what you want with Windows 2000;(ii) Show you things you might want to do but didn't know you could do; and(iii) Enjoy the experience of working with Windows 2000.

This very basic book will help anyone become proficient with Windows 2000 with a minimum of fuss. There are useful cross-references in each chapter that point you to information on related tasks. If you are new to Windows 2000 either at home or work, get yourself a copy.

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.
