Windows 2000 - Make it your own

One of Windows 2000's quirks is a menu system that will sometimes display all the items at once - and sometimes display a couple of little arrows along with a fraction of your menu items. Why does it do this? Well, Windows 2000 can tell if you haven't been using an application for a while and will attempt to make things easier for you by hiding those unused programs. This can be very annoying, but thankfully it can be turned off simply by navigating to Start-Settings-Taskbar & Start Menu. Unclear the box that says "Use Personalized Menus", click Apply and OK.

The same feature lurks in Internet Explorer. To disable it there, go to Tools-Internet Options. From the Advanced tab uncheck "Enable Personalized Favorites Menu" and click OK.

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.
