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

Greater control over personal information privacy

The tech industry loves to gather our personal data, often unbeknownst to us. Apple gathers plenty of information about us in its stores, but in both iOS and OS X it provides strong controls to let us protect how our personal information is used by applications and Web services. The Security & Privacy system preference in OS X Mountain Lion adds to the location privacy settings in OS X Lion similar controls for access to your contacts, Twitter account, and Facebook account.

The first time an app or service wants access to these repositories, OS X displays an alert box asking you permission. If you say yes and later regret it, you can delete the untrusted app's or service's permissions in the system preference.

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.
