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.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
