In Pictures: Mac OS X's 9 lives

In 21 years, Apple's reinvented Mac OS has pushed computing in vibrant new directions. Now a new version is imminent

Mac OS X Jaguar (10.2)

Reign: August 2002-October 2003

Key new capabilities: Quartz Extreme graphics-rendering engine, systemwide contacts management (Address Book), Unix-based (CUPS) printer drivers, support for Samba open source protocol for Windows networks, instant-messaging client (iChat), major attempt to include accessibility services, handwriting recognition engine for use with pen tablets, discontinuation of the original Mac's "happy Mac" icon at startup

Notes: This was the first version of OS X to be officially branded with its code name. It was also the first OS X version to garner a strongly positive reception.

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.
