Publishing high-quality documents with Kile

TeX and LaTeX produce impeccably laid-out documents, and are the only practical way to show some mathematical equations. This GUI tool acts as an "integrated development environment" for the command-line document preparation tools.

Conclusion

Kile is an amazing piece of programming work. Its feature-rich user interface will boost everyone's typesetting productivity by providing quick access to all Tex and LaTeX programs. Kile can help anyone improve his or her productivity with LaTeX typesetting, but it is no substitute for a good written tutorial. Among the electronically available free titles, Tobias Oetiker's book, The Not So Short Introduction Guide to LaTeX2e is a good companion to Kile.

The road to the beautifully typeset publications is paved with many hours and days of learning the subtleties of TeX and LaTeX. compilers. Discovering numerous secrets of the language, plus learning about Postscript and Metapost along the way, is nowadays much faster with Kile and, some may find, more entertaining. Through extensive exploitation and the good work of the programmers, this program has reached an exceptional level of maturity and stability. The integration with the teTeX collection of compilers and utilities is so well done that the laborious ways of working separately with each one of them is now history.

The original author Pascal Brachet and the members of the Kile development team can be proud of their work given the number of users who benefit from it.

STYLISTIC Q702

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
