Ashampoo Presentations 2008
Ashampoo Presentations offers most of Microsoft PowerPoint's functionality, at a fraction of the price.
- Doesn't provide all the high-end features of PowerPoint
If you don't need many high-end features, Ashampoo Presentations will save you a lot of money compared to PowerPoint, and is well worth a look — and potentially, a purchase.
Price$ 31.99 (AUD)
Ashampoo Presentations offers most of Microsoft PowerPoint's functionality, at a fraction of the price. Ashampoo Presentations forms part of the Ashampoo Office suite.
Want serious presentation power, but without paying PowerPoint's full freight? Then you'll want to try Ashampoo Presentations. This lower-priced alternative offers many of the major features of PowerPoint, without busting your budget.
Ashampoo Presentations is an inexpensive presentation program that includes what are to many people the most important features of PowerPoint: easily building presentations; inserting graphics and other objects; nifty animated transitions between slides; and multiple views of a presentation for easy creation, management, and editing.
The program also reads PowerPoint presentations, and can save presentations in PowerPoint format or in a variety of other formats, including graphics formats. Ashampoo Presentations can even export presentations as PDFs.
You should be aware, though, that PowerPoint has a number of powerful features that you won't find in Ashampoo Presentations 2008, such as "SmartArt", which lets you easily build sophisticated graphics such as organisation and relationship charts and then insert them into your presentation.
And Ashampoo Presentations also include fewer multimedia tools, such as the ability to record narrations and incorporate them into presentations. So if you're a true presentation power user, you may not be satisfied with the program.

GGG Evaluation Team
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.
