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

Keep malware off your Mac

In the last year, the Mac has seen its first serious malware attacks, using third-party conduits such as Java. Apple loves people to think that malware is a Windows problem, but it's been forced to add antimalware capabilities to OS X Lion and enhance them in OS X Mountain Lion with the new Gatekeeper facility.

By default, only apps purchased from the Mac App Store install in OS X Mountain Lion. But you can let third-party apps with a valid Apple developer ID install, no matter where obtained. And you can disable Gatekeeper -- including for just an individual installation that you trust via a contextual menu option.

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.
