Windows 2000: tuning the new OS

In any explorer that uses the Web view - including those in the Search Results window - you can play a sound or video file without running a separate program. To play back .avi, .mpg or .wav files, make sure that Enable Web content in folders is checked in Tools-Folder Options-General, and make certain that Windows Media Player or RealPlayer is installed.

Then select the multimedia file. In the Web view's file information pane, a preview window will appear with the first frame of a video file, and a slider bar with player controls will appear for sound files. To listen, click the Play button. To check out frames of a video file, slide the bar beneath the preview.

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.
