In Pictures: What’s new in Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7

Here’s what’s noteworthy in the upcoming version of Microsoft’s browser.

Images and text rendered through the GPU Speaking of the GPU, IE11 uses this chip in your computer to help speed the rendering and display of pages. Microsoft boasts that IE11 is the first browser to natively decode JPG images in real-time by using the GPU to do so, and the first to use this hardware to render text. Besides helping to load pages faster, this technique saves on memory usage; therefore, the company claims, it reduces the power consumed by your computer, and, if IE11 is running on a mobile device, extends battery life.

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.
