In Pictures: 8 simple ways to increase your office productivity

If your workspace is disorganised, you could be losing productivity. These eight tips can help you keep it all together and get the most out of each hour of the day.

7. Organize Yourself Digitally Being electronically organized is as important as being physically organized. Create folders and subfolders in your inbox for each client and project, so when new emails arrive, you can quickly act on it.

"Don’t allow things to stay in your Inbox unless they require action," Kreamer says. "Either delete it, forward it or file it."

Finally, minimize distractions. "Turn off email notifications: the sound, envelope icon in the notification area, the mouse cursor change and especially the 'New Email' Desktop Alert that fades in and out," she says. "Since you've set up specific times to check and respond to email, you won't need them."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.

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.
