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

Google Save for a dip in mid-2012, Google’s cash pile has been growing steadily for the last several years, climbing from nearly $16 billion in late 2008 to more than $54.4 billion today ($16.16 billion in cash and cash equivalents, and $38.27 billion in marketable securities). To date, Google doesn't pay a dividend and it’s not buying back stock -- although industry watchers says it’s inevitable that the tech giant will begin returning cash to shareholders.

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.
