In Pictures: Facebook IPO - the heftiest paydays

With a possible valuation of $US100 billion, Facebook's IPO filing could make a lot of people very, very rich (or richer). Here's a look at the breakdown of who could get what, from Mark Zuckerberg to Bono - yes, Bono.

Sean Parker: $4 Billion

Sean Parker, 32, is perhaps best known for founding file-sharing music service Napster in 1999. In 2004, Parker, who served as an early adviser to social network Friendster, met with Zuckerberg after seeing "Thefacebook" on his roommate's girlfriend's computer. A few months later, Parker joined the social network as its founding president, signing Facebook's first investor.

Parker resigned as president in 2005 after police searched a vacation home he was renting and found cocaine. Parker was arrested on suspicion of possession, but not charged. He retained a 4 percent stake of Facebook, which could earn him $4 billion.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
