In Pictures: OS X Mountain Lion arrives - the top 25 features

Apple's latest OS X version amps up the iOS integration, but offers much more for business and personal use

Daily updates and app syncing

OS X Mountain Lion centralizes all updates in the Mac App Store's Updates pane. When you do a Software Update from the Apple menu, the App Store opens and does the search -- not a separate app as before. That way, all your updates are in one place.

OS X Mountain Lion also now checks for app and system updates -- including security patches -- daily, rather than weekly. And you can no longer select that update schedule; it's daily or manual. OS X also now can be set to install security and system updates without asking (that's the default).

You can also have OS X automatically download any Mac apps purchased on another Mac using the same Apple ID -- just like how iOS works.

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.
