In Pictures: Windows Server 8 - Ten features managers will love

These new and improved features in Windows Server 8 will make many Windows administrators very happy

Offloaded Data Transfer

If you are moving data from one SAN drive to another SAN drive across the network, you have no need to pass that data through the server. Windows Server 8 uses Offloaded Data Transfer to remove the server as the middleman, allowing the data to transfer with minimal impact to server resources or bandwidth.

    But it is not as good as IOS, as my IOS has an app store and a front facing camera. Also the tablet is used by more kids at schools and the kids are the future and we will be using IOS for ever, also the phone is the server of the future and the phone will be in the cloud so iCloud is the way to go.

    Whoever thinks that Microsoft has a good server, desktop, notebook, tablet and phone operating system needs to look at Windows ME, if they could not do it then, you think that they will do it now???

    Seriously people, IOS for the server with XRAID, it is the only way to go.

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.

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.
