Imation FlashGo! 2.0

For users of devices that rely on card-based media — especially digital cameras — there is nothing more annoying than first having to connect your device to the PC and then having to load up the appropriate interface software to access the data you have on those cards.

Card readers are a more convenient way to access data, and the Imation FlashGo! 2.0 can read seven types of different flash cards, including CompactFlash (Type I and II up to 512MB), SmartMedia (up to 128MB), Memory Stick (up to 128MB), SecureDigital (up to 256MB), MultiMediaCard (up to 128MB) and Microdrive (up to 1GB).

The device is very easy to use through its high-speed USB 2.0 interface. It does not require a power cable and is backward-compatible with USB 1.1 ports. Upon plugging it into a Windows XP or Me machine, you will be able to access cards instantly through Windows Explorer. If you’re a Windows 98, 98SE or 2000 user, you will have to install the accompanying software. The unit’s small size makes it very portable and easy to carry in a shirt pocket, and a snug carry pouch is also provided.

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.
