In Pictures: CEO pay. Cash, stock awards, perks add up to big pay packages

Median pay for tech CEOs in 2012 was $10.7 million, according to Network World’s analysis of CEO compensation in the tech industry.

Oracle’s Larry Ellison is back on top of our CEO pay tally after a 24% raise upped his 2012 compensation to $96.1 million. Ellison isn’t the only tech CEO enjoying a big raise, however. Pay for CEO Michael Dell more than tripled to $16.1 million, for example, and Dominic Orr, CEO of Aruba Networks, netted a nearly 10-fold increase to $8.9 million. Read on to find out more about the salaries, bonuses, stock awards and perks that tech industry CEOs took home in 2012. Our tallies -- arranged from lowest to highest paid CEO -- are based on reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

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.
