Bond, James Bond?

Whether it's fingerprint readers, retina scanners or voice activated security, consumers have always been fascinated by biometric technology.

So we were naturally excited when Fujitsu PC announced that their latest notebook computer, the LifeBook N3510, boasts a built-in fingerprint reader for the protection of personal and private files.

In what is sure to become a favourite for none other than James Bond, the fingerprint scanner uses capacitance sensor-based technology - which in basic terms is a device that uses electrical signals to create an image of the fingerprint ridge and patterns.

Fujitsu claims the reader scans fingerprint images beneath the actual skin surface, which reduces the need for multiple scans and ensures accuracy. Sounds nifty.

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.
