In Pictures: Top tech hoarders - 15 companies with huge cash piles

Apple, Microsoft, Google and Cisco are flush with cash, and so are many other tech companies

IBM Like many of its tech peers, IBM has been increasing its efforts to return cash to shareholders. In April, Big Blue announced plans to boost its quarterly dividend by 12% and bolster its stock buyback program by $5 billion (bringing the total of its current stock repurchase program to $11.2 billion). Currently, IBM’s $10.4 billion cash haul consists of $9.6 billion in cash and cash equivalents, plus $799 million in marketable securities. It carries $26.3 billion of long-term debt. “Since 2000, we have returned over $150 billion to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases,” said IBM CEO Ginni Rometty in a statement.

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.
