In pictures: 10 trends in IT spending for 2014

After years of maintenance-only spending, IT leaders are ready to invest. Find out which technologies - and which IT professionals - are pulling down the dough.

Budgets on the rise The economy's slow but steady climb towards positive growth is giving organizations the confidence to bolster spending, and IT leaders believe they will benefit from that shift in thinking.

Some 62% of IT leaders surveyed expect to see an increase in their 2014 IT budgets, compared to last year when only 48% anticipated budget increases. At the same time, leaders expecting budget decreases dropped from 16% last year to just 12% for 2014.

That's good news for IT leaders who spent the last six to 12 months building plans and making commitments to the business side of the house, the report points out, because in 2014 they'll be expected to deliver on those promises.

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.
