In Pictures: A sneak peek at Apple's upcoming OS X Mountain Lion

Apple says its latest Mac OS X version will be released this [southern ] winter; here's a look at what to expect


Last year, we saw a major Mac malware attack that forced Apple to issue a security patch in Mac OS X. Though common for Windows and Android, malware is still a rarity on the Mac, but as it gains popularity, the malware risk also rises.

Gatekeeper is an attempt to reassure users they aren't inadvertantly downloading malware. By default, Mountain Lion will only let Mac App Store apps and apps from developers with an Apple-issued ID launch for the first time. In this way, Apple can make sure apps haven't been modified to include malware and developers aren't just malware operators in disguise. But users can still choose to install Mac apps from DVDs and downloads if they want.

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.
