In Pictures: iOS 6 arrives - its 16 key new features

Although the new OS for the iPad and iPhone is largely a collection of refinements, users will still want it

Reorder mailboxes, filter by favorites

Another fix to iOS's email is the new ability to reorder mailboxes in your list of accounts, so they appear in your preferred order rather than the seemingly random order of previous versions.

iOS 6 also uses the VIP virtual mailbox that debuted in OS X Mountain Lion: Mail from anyone you specify as a VIP appears in the virtual VIP mailbox for quick access. (These are aliases, so the actual message remains in the original mailboxes and folders.) Tap a name in a mesage and choose Add to VIP in the popover that appears; VIPs in OS X's Mail also sync with iOS.

Another minor change: The flagging feature now gets its own button at the top of the message pane.

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.
