"Doers" in top demand Filling the "doer" positions will be a top priority for organizations in 2014. Programmers, developers and project managers top the list of most-in-need skill sets, while leadership talent -- including C-suite executives, VP and director-level positions, even IT managers and business analysts -- takes a back seat, according to survey respondents.

"IT departments have run pretty lean over the last few years," says Hayman. "As more projects are set into motion, the most important step is to have the people on staff that can do the hands-on work.

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.
