Dell PowerVault NX1950
- It's a quick fit into any Windows-centric network, easy to configure and maintain
- NFS support is difficult to implement and manage
The NX1950 is essentially a Dell PowerEdge 1950 with a SAS array hung off the back, running Windows Unified Storage Server. It's a quick fit into any Windows-centric network and is easy to configure and maintain, but the NFS support is unfortunately difficult to implement and manage. It's a solid performer, but has the overhead of a full Windows server installation, and a high price.

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.
