In Pictures: Windows Blue - a sneak peek

An update to Windows 8 is in the works, codenamed Windows Blue.

Run only one app upon log-in Called Assigned Access or Kiosk Mode, you can set Windows Blue to automatically run a Windows 8 app after your device starts up and a particular user account has been logged in. This essentially turns your computer or tablet into a single-use device. Why would you want this? For example, you could start a new user account meant solely for customers or other guests you want to have access to your Windows 8.1 device -- but be limited to doing only one thing on it through an app. So you could choose this app listed in Assigned Access (under PC Settings, Users) to run when you log into this account.

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.
