Acronis ANZ True Image Home 11
- Imaging from within Windows or a recovery disk, creates a hidden restore and safe-zone partition
- Unintuitive interface, overly complicated workflow
The interface may be befuddling in spots, but True Image is the best all-around backup utility available. Find a demo of it here for download.

Great at backups, but its interface can be confusing.
Now in version 11, Acronis True Image is the most powerful consumer imaging program on the market. It runs from within Windows or from a Linux-based boot disc, creates full and incremental images (backing up the entire drive and subsequently adding new and changed files), and offers the usual compression and encryption options.
If you choose the more expensive Workstation version and purchase a Universal Restore module, you can restore images to a PC whose hardware profile differs from the one on which the image was created.
Version 11's interface is friendlier than earlier ones, though still unintuitive at times. Its new Try & Decide mode works like a virtual machine, writing disk changes to a hidden recovery partition, and committing them later only at your discretion. Turn it on before you install unfamiliar software or browse to dubious Web sites. In the gold beta we tested, the feature exacted a noticeable performance hit, but it's still a nice safeguard.
You can also now restore individual files and folders from a full image within the main program, perform a quick system-state backup, and take advantage of improved filtering for file and folder backups. The interface may be befuddling in spots, but True Image is the best all-around backup utility available. Find a demo of it here for download.

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.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
