In Pictures: Who are tech’s highest paid CEOs?

Oracle’s Larry Ellison finally ousted from the top spot on our list of highest paid tech execs. We count them down from 50 to 1. (All figures in $US)

John Chambers, Cisco CEO and chairman

Chambers received compensation valued at $12.9 million in Cisco’s 2011 fiscal year, a period when the company restructured operations, shuttered its Flip videocam business and eliminated more than 12,000 jobs. His total pay package --which is down 32% compared to 2010, when he received $18.9 million -- included a $375,000 salary and equity awards valued at $12.5 million (half of which was forfeited). As a company, Cisco grew sales but saw net income drop in its 2011 fiscal year. Revenue hit $43.2 billion, a gain of 8% compared to $40 billion in 2010. Net income totaled $6.5 billion, which is down 16% from $7.8 billion in the prior year.

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.
