IN PICTURES: Windows 8 cheat sheet

With Windows 8, Microsoft introduces a brand new interface that feels designed more for tablets than for laptops and desktops. We'll help you find your way around the new OS and make the most of its features.

File Explorer

Called Windows Explorer in previous versions of Windows, File Explorer has been redesigned with a Ribbon interface, similiar to the one found in Word 2010 and other current Microsoft Office apps.

The Ribbon is divided into several tabs that provide quick access to various file-management commands. The Home tab lets you copy, paste, move, rename and open files, among other things. The Share tab lets you share files and folders via email, by burning to disc and so on. The View tab lets you customize how you display files and folders in File Explorer. And the File tab on the far left offers features such as quick navigation to frequently visited locations.

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.
