In Pictures: 11 holiday gift ideas for IT executives

The holidays are here and if you are still shopping for gifts for the tech pro in your life (or maybe you're making your own Christmas wish list), these products are as practical are they are cool.

Windows 8 Tablet Inexpensive tablets running full versions of Windows 8.1 are flooding the market. With the new Intel Atom Bay Trail processor they have the power of the PC in the tablet form factor at an impressive price point. That said, those IT pros who lament the limitations of Android and the iPad will be excited to unleash the full power of the Web.

ASUS, Dell, Toshiba and HP are just some of the manufacturers offering sub $500 tablet computers. There are higher-end models like the Surface Pro and Acer Iconia that provide a full-fledged ultrabook experience with all the expected bells and whistles. These won't be for everyone because along with the full power of the PC comes the problems of the PC.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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.
