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: “Over the past ten years, we’ve grown a lot. IT has needed to keep up with this growth, so we’ve aggressively embraced virtualization. We have more than 450 VMs, and they all need to be backed up, both to ensure operations run continuously and comply with regulatory requirements. But our physical backup solution couldn’t keep up with the needs of our modernized data center. Today, we backup up our VMs with Veeam. As a result, we have cut the size of our backup by 82%, and a restoration that used to take two hours now takes just 14 minutes.”

Years in IT: 11

Upcoming IT projects: Virtual desktop infrastructure.

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.

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.
