IT charity fund to raise money for kids

Staff from companies like Com Tech, IBM, Compaq, Optus, Cisco and Dell will donate money to "Putting IT Back", as the charity is known, on 17 November. Funds will then be directed to the Starlight Children's Foundation and Giant Steps - both children's charities.

Other companies that will be involved are NEC/Packard Bell, Lucent, Lotus, MYOB, f2, Citrix, Powerlan, Volante, eSign, Sun, Professional Advantage, Davnet, Austar Pay TV, Web Methods, Quicken and eCorp.

The fund hopes to raise $250,000 on the day. The money raised will go toward granting wishes, the Starlight Express Rooms located in children's hospitals around the country, Starlight Fun Centres equipped with bedside entertainment for kids, mobile Express Rooms that visit country and regional hospitals, and Giant Steps programs.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
