In Pictures: 11 (free!) Microsoft tools to make life easier

Tools that secure, automate, pinch pennies - including some for Windows 8

Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 2012

Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 2012 is designed to help virtual machine admins keep track of old virtual machines that may be stored offline, but may come back into use at some point. The tool automatically checks these machines that have been stored offline in a Virtual Machine Manager library and updates them with new virus signatures, application patches and operating system updates. This reduces the time needed to get these VMs in shape to come back into service and eliminates the need to create a secure environment in which to update them manually. VMST 2012 works in tandem with System Center 2012.

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.
