Windows 2000: tuning the new OS

The first time you turn on the Active Desktop feature, only one item of Web content is displayed - the Internet Explorer Channel Bar. To add new items, right-click a blank part of the Desktop, and select Active Desktop-New Desktop Item. In a single dialogue box, you are given the choice to browse Microsoft's collection of Active Desk-top items online (View Gallery), or enter the Web address or location on your hard drive or network of a Web element you'd like to add. Microsoft's Desktop Gallery is worth a look - especially if you're in the market for a stock ticker, weather map, or AudioNet jukebox on your desktop.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
