In Pictures: 10 things every new Mac user should know

Your guide to a short and painless learning curve.

Accept that there will be differences Although Microsoft makes versions of Office for PCs and Macs, there are a few differences. For example, on a Mac, the application will open each document in a separate window that will not take up the whole screen, as it would on a PC, allowing the user to simultaneously type and look at another window. In addition, some of the tabs within the applications have changed names, and these small changes cause frustration for many people. But you'll get used to them soon enough.

He was previously an Apple Store genius for four years, and he has worked with a range of Apple products, from personal to enterprise systems, for eight years.

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.
