12 enraging Office 2013 flaws -- and how to fix them

While the Office patriots wax poetic over Office 2013’s new features -- gosh, I can’t think of a better way to invite all my friends to connect on Linkedin -- those of us who have long struggled with Office see a lot of gratuitous change that simply gets in the way.

If you’re new to Office, need some prompting about basic features, want to put all of your documents in SkyDrive, and don’t mind STARING AT A SCREEN OF GRATUITOUS CAPS, the new Office 2013 should be right up your alley.

But if you’ve been using Office for a while, relegate files to SkyDrive begrudgingly, use Dropbox, and couldn’t care less about touch, there are a few steps you can take to make Office 2013 tolerable.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
