In Pictures: IT toolbox for the iPad

In case of emergency, tap these handy tools for network and server admins

iPad apps for IT survival

When I get frantic calls from my users at random times, I turn to the assistant that's always by my side: my iPad. With so many good technical apps available for the iPad, I can use the tablet to manage my servers from just about anywhere I can get Wi-Fi. This collection of iPad apps includes remote access, network diagnostics, documentation, and other tools I’ve been using for the last couple years. It certainly isn’t one-size-fits-all, but it has been extremely useful to me. It’s all you need for those minor changes -- to reset a password, unlock a user account, add a firewall exception, create a new SSL-VPN user, and more.

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.

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.

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.
