Larry Ellison in Pictures: It's Good to Be The King

The $28 billion net worth. The jets. The megayacht. The wedding pictures taken by Steve Jobs. (Yes, that Steve Jobs.) Take a look the posh perks of being Larry Ellison.

The Portfolio

OK, so he's worth $28 billion. So what does Ellison's "portfolio" look like? A sampling: Annual salary from Oracle: $4.59 million. He owns more than 20 percent of Oracle, and his shares have increased 70 percent in value during the past year. The ultimate "have my cake and eat it, too" holding: Ellison owns a 52 percent stake in SaaS ERP vendor NetSuite—a rising business apps competitor—and those shares are worth $480 million. Larry does have to be careful with his personal finances, though: E-mails from Ellison's nervous accountant, revealed in 2006, show that Larry's not afraid of "runaway" spending. "I'm worried, Larry," the accountant wrote to him, in a 2002 e-mail. "I think it's imperative that we start to budget and plan." Larry on a budget?!

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
