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.

Enrique Salem, former Symantec CEO and president Symantec nearly doubled its profits and grew revenue by 9% during Salem’s last full year at the helm. For the 2012 fiscal year, revenue was $6.7 billion, compared to $6.2 billion in 2011. Net income was $1.2 billion, compared to $597 million a year earlier. Salem, meanwhile, received a $9.4 million pay package that included his $800,000 salary, $3.2 million bonus, equity awards valued at $5.3 million, and $98,462 worth of perks and other compensation. His compensation is up 10% compared to 2011, when his package was valued at $8.5 million. Last July, Symantec ousted Salem and Steve Bennett, chairman of Symantec’s board, took over as CEO.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.

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.
