Fujitsu Stylistic Q704 (7)

At the Fujitsu Forum 2013 preview in Munich yesterday (and continuing for the next 2 days) I had the chance to get hands-on with a number of new Fujitsu products.

That was “the most complex and multi-faceted PC we’ve ever tested.” The Q704 follows the same path in offering fully-featured high-quality tablet or laptop-style productivity but this time in a waterproof and dustproof casing.

Tags: , , , , ,


Touchscreen Ultrabook reference design

Microsoft and Intel have made it no secret that they want to bring touchscreen computing to Windows and the x86 platform. The Windows 8 Release Preview will be made available in the first week of June, the same week that the annual Computex technology fair is being held in Taipei. The timing is unlikely coincidental. We’re likely to see the debut of market-ready touchscreen Ultrabooks running the Windows 8 Release Preview at Computex, a new Ultrabook from Dell could be among them.
