Outsourcing Web Design: what it really costs

To create a successful, functional and attractive Web site requires the mastery of a multitude of disciplines including HTML coding, JavaScript and java knowledge plus database design, graphic skills and even audio, video and photographic experience - all allied with journalistic flair.

There has also been a change in thinking about how Web sites should be put together. Today, a more project-managed method is being employed in which the corporate Web site is treated as an independent strategy and not simply a mimic of the company brochure.

In an effort to best leverage their investment in a Web site, rather than attempt to do all this in-house, many companies are turning to specialist Web development production houses to outsource their developmental needs.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
