In Pictures: Fave raves - 33 tech pros share their favourite IT products

What IT pros like, in their own words

Why it's a favorite: “We have over 150 servers deployed across two primary data centers in the U.S., and smaller data centers in 18 different countries around the world. We standardize everything on Ubuntu Linux. We chose Ubuntu specifically because we like the philosophy and design decisions of Debian, but wanted the support and reliability that Ubuntu offers through its commercial backing by Canonical. This has allowed us to solve many weird and wonderful problems without needing to get into the details of Linux kernel and drivers, so we can focus on building our own products.”

Years in IT: 12

Upcoming IT projects: “Optimizing our infrastructure to take advantage of the latest cloud-based technologies like more efficient, cheaper compute instances and scalable data stores.”

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
