New Fujitsu super-slim Lifebook Q2010 laptop

On Tuesday, Fujitsu Computer Systems announced its stylish new LifeBook Q Series notebook. The LifeBook Q2010 is super-slim--just ¾ of an inch thick--and weighs just 2.2 pounds.

(The unit comes standard with a three-cell battery; a six-cell battery is optional.)

Its black magnesium chassis houses an impressive 12.1-inch wide display, as well as a shock-mounted hard drive that relies on hardware and software G-Force accelerometers to lock the drive's head if the unit experiences a sudden drop or vibration.

"It's executive jewelry," says Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing at Fujitsu Computer Systems, of the high-design Q Series.

The line of notebooks will include Intel's Core Solo processor, and is equipped with Windows XP (though it's tagged as being Windows Vista capable). The Q2010 has integrated Wi-Fi 802.11abg, as well as Bluetooth v. 2.0, and enough ports and slots to keep you running the basics and then some (integrated SD Card slot on the left hand side, plus headphones and microphone jacks and a convenient volume wheel.

On the right side, the unit has a 1394 FireWire port, plus two USB ports and a PC Card slot; and a biometric fingerprint reader). The unit ships with either a 40GB or 80GB 1.8-inch hard drive.

Most of your connectivity will come via the lightweight (no weight was available at press time) and well-designed docking station, which includes a dual-layer DVD burner plus ethernet jack and four USB ports.

I found the slim unit a joy to hold, and even the docking station was light enough that I'd use it while traveling. I just wish there was some way to fit an optical into the unit itself, but I might just settle for the optical drive in the docking station.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
