In Pictures: 12 tips and tools for Chromebook power users

The Chromebook can be a powerful workhorse -- here's how to replace your standard laptop for work

Feedly With the demise of Google Reader, Feedly is my RSS feed reader of choice. It’s essential for anyone looking to keep up to date with their favorite websites.

The Chrome app is just a wrapper for, but having it installed means there’s an icon to click on the dock, which can be set to start full-screen rather than in a tab.

I use it to track the news I post to Twitter, research for my InfoWorld column, and so on. It’s able to clip text to Evernote as well as keep track of what I have read across all the places I log in to Feedly

Unfortunately, it does not offer an offline mode for reading while traveling; otherwise it’s near perfect.

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.
