In Pictures: Tech for geeks and students

Here's a bunch of goodies that will prove useful to students, self-respecting geeks and anybody who loves a good gadget

Epson WorkForce 645 All-in-One printer

Despite PDFs and email, the paperless university is as much of a pipe dream as the paperless office. While not the cheapest multifunction printer available, the Epson WorkForce 645 ($149.99; $99.99 at Amazon) offers an excellent balance of price and performance, and its compact design means it won't take up half your dorm room. It prints at up to 15 ppm (one-sided, black), does automatic two-sided printing and scanning, and comes with a 30-sheet automatic document feeder for batch scanning.

Besides wireless printing from computers, it supports Apple AirPrint and Epson iPrint for printing from mobile devices. And it comes with full-size ink cartridges, not the low-capacity "starter" cartridges other printers start you off with.

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.
