HP negotiating $US18b PwC Consulting buyout

"Terms of the transaction have not been agreed upon, and significant issues remain to be resolved, but the parties are contemplating a cash-and-stock acquisition at a price in the $US17 billion to $US18 billion range," said HP in a press release.

A PricewaterhouseCoopers spokesman also confirmed the talks, although neither company would divulge specifics about a potential deal. PricewaterhouseCoopers announced in February that it would deconsolidate its business, selling off its consulting segments.

The acquisition would better position HP to help companies adjust to new business processes as they adopt new technology, said HP.

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.
