Metrowerks CodeWarrior 8

Metrowerks latest release of its acclaimed CodeWarrior Develop­­ment Tools provides enhance­ments to the C/C++/Java programming environment.

With the new code completion feature, you can write complex pieces of code quickly with fast access to various functions and symbols.

Customisable workspaces and docking windows let you create an environ­ment where you feel most comfortable. A very useful multimedia tutorial explains how to get the best use out of these tools.

A big selling point for CodeWarrior 8 is that users can develop for Windows and Mac platforms using the same development environment. There are also CodeWarrior 8 implementations for Linux, Palm OS, and Motorola platforms.

CodeWarrior’s ability to produce compact and efficient code is thanks to its industry-leading ANSI/ISO/C/C++ compiler. Other impressive features include the customisable text editor, inter­active debugger and sophisticated project manager (See here for a screenshot example).

Students new to programming can benefit from a simplified academic Code­Warrior product that is easier to use, and take advantage of a significantly cheaper price. Check out the Metrowerks site for more information on academic pricing.

CodeWarrior positives include the ability to develop simultaneously for Mac and Windows environments even with only the Windows version, and the handy code completion feature. Drawbacks include the fact that it’s really only suited for ex­peri­enced programmers.

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.
