In Pictures: A sneak peek at Apple's upcoming OS X Mountain Lion

Apple says its latest Mac OS X version will be released this [southern ] winter; here's a look at what to expect

System-level notification

Instead of forcing Mac software developers to devise their own notifications capabiltiies, Mountain Lion features integrated, standardized notification technology. All alerts and notifications will appear in the top-right corner of the screen. Notifications remain there for five seconds, then slide off screen; alerts, on the other hand, remain on-screen until you click a button (Show, Close, or Snooze). That's essentially the same as how notifications work on iOS devices, though the Snooze option is (so far) unique to OS X Mountain Lion.

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.

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.

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.
