Malaysia Seeks Australian Tenants for IT Park

Located at Johor, the southern tip of Malaysia, the park is scheduled to be opened in March 2001 and is currently entering into negotiations with potential clients.

"We have found that relocation and international expansion plans have a significant lead-time, and UNI-IT Park is pleased to enter into negotiations with Australian companies now and in the lead-up to the facility opening," said Dr V Kanapathy, UNI-IT Sdn Bhd Park's director.

With the Asian economies generally in recovery mode, led by Singapore and Malaysia, there is huge potential for IT uptake, according to Kanapathy.

The bulk of the technology park is already leased to JIITEC, a Malaysian-registered IT incubator. Australian exporters wanting to set up a base can either lease office space within JIITEC and have access to incubation facilities or lease space outside JIITEC. Incubation facilities within JIITEC include assistance with legal and marketing activities, among others.

Johor was chosen as the location for the technology park due to its proximity to Singapore, which is "running out of physical and economical space for siting of back-office activities, warehousing and assembly, R&D and startups operations", Kanapathy said.

The location also takes into consideration the forthcoming opening of a second causeway linking Singapore to Malaysia and the upgrading of Johor's Senai airport to regional status.

Currently occupying 1000-plus square meters, UNI-IT Sdn Bhd plans to expand the technology park to triple its current size by 2006.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
