In Pictures: Windows 8 Release Preview - a visual tour

Here are some of the more interesting improvements - and quirks - of Windows 8 RP, as Microsoft sprints to the finish line

The Bing News site on the Web

This is what Bing’s news website looks like using Metro IE 10 with all of the “chrome” tucked away, at 1366 x 768. The site’s designed to encourage you to put RSS feeds and news alerts associated with your Microsoft account on the right side. (Click to enlarge.) If you click on the tabs at the top, Bing shows you the latest news items in typical search result style, with a link at the top of each item, a short blurb, and possibly a picture on the left. If you were to rely on Bing for your daily news would you prefer the Windows 8 Metro style (Slide 3), the iPad style (Slide 5), or the native Web style (this slide)?

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.
