Surfing the slopes in NZ

The new site will enable customers to check out resources such as maps, accommodation, vehicles and nightlife in various NZ ski resorts.

Co-founder of travel.com.au/ski, James Coddington, said the virtual reality site offers a new dimension to booking a holiday over the Net. "Instead of traditional two-dimensional brochure photographs, the site allows the user to 'go inside' their chosen hotel room, rental car or campervan and access a 360-degree view of the facilities before they actually book, (with) no uncertainties or misconceptions," he said.

Coddington, a former member of the New Zealand national ski team, also said the aim of the site is to create a better travel experience for passionate skiers and snowboarders.

"We chose to develop this innovative site to benefit our growing number of clients who are becoming more familiar with booking ski/board holidays online and hope that New Zealand is the first of many destinations we can offer this service for," Coddington said.

The creation of the NZ virtual site involved considerable research, including six months filming in New Zealand, the company said.

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.
