In Pictures: Windows 8.1 networking cheat sheet

Whether you’re in IT or an average end user, here’s what you need to know about the changes and new features.

New place for proxy server settings In previous versions of Windows, you changed proxy settings via the Connections tab of Internet Explorer's Internet Options dialog. This still exists in Windows 8.1, but now proxy settings are also available in the Network section of the PC Settings app as well. Open the Settings charm (slide along right of screen or press Win + I), select Change PC Settings, select Network, and select Proxy. It includes most of the same automatic and manual proxy settings found in the Internet Options dialog, with the exception of being able to set different proxy addresses for particular protocols.

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.
