- Streamlined MSCVMM user interface, VM image library, Quick Migration feature, ability to manage VMware VMs
- MSCVMM only in public beta, no equivalent to VMotion, official Linux support limited to Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10;
Microsoft's attempt at toppling VMware VI3 is chock-full of classic embrace-and-extend goodness, including support in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 (tested in beta) for managing VI3 assets. The Hyper-V hypervisor technology is sound and should scale well enough to challenge VMware's ESX Server. However, Microsoft still lags in the area of high availability, though the functionality in Virtual Machine Manager should be good enough to deliver wins in less demanding virtualization environments.

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.
