Surfing for nix
PC World Business
Sony finally lifted the lid on its long-awaited PlayStation 2. The game console was unveiled in Tokyo - and onlookers were more than impressed by the promise of PlayStation.
It's big, it's brawny and it's surprisingly swift. Better yet, you'll need just 64MB of memory to lift Microsoft's new OS off the ground. This month we put Windows 2000 through its paces to see how it measures up to it predecessors.
Once you've upgraded, you'll find that Windows 2000 is a land of opportunity. Here's how to customise your desktop, manage files, maintain security, access the Internet - and more.
EXCLUSIVE: in the PC World Test Centre this month is the Kryotech Super G. Hitting the ground running at 1000MHz, this is the first time a machine of this calibre has been put through its paces in Australia.

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.
