Cool and Crazy: Pix of Tech Curiosities From Computex 2008

Ubuntu Netbook Remix

This may be the first computer seen running Ubuntu's Netbook Remix, a new version of the open-source OS designed for mini- laptops like the Eee PC. It's shown here on an Amtek tablet computer with a 10.2-inch display and Intel's new Diamondville Atom processor. Amtek is a contract manufacturer that serves mostly Japan, but also Tulip Computers in Europe. The device has a touch screen and is for use in restaurants and other work settings, but Amtek will also make Ubuntu mininotebooks for consumers; such models should be on sale in a few months.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
