Reviews Round-Up: Karmic Koala
Apple takes things up a few notches with the iMac 27in and new MacBook, Ubuntu Karmic Koala wants to distract you from Microsoft, and we compare Vista and Windows 7.
Centralised management tools might not be sexy, but to an IT administrator a good one can be worth its weight in gold. This appliance from Kace impresses our reviewer particularly for its labelling function.
One would have images that by 2009 capturing notes digitally would have been the norm, but in fact, it's still an emerging market. Our reviewer was generally impressed with the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen, but the lack of OCR software out of the box was considered a bit of a disappointment.
Ubuntu is probably the best known of the Linux distributions, but can it compete with Windows 7? It can do pretty much everything that Windows can, and it's free, but moving to Linux on the desktop is still likely to be more for ideological rather than practical reasons.
Windows Vista was a big, big disappointment that much we know. But how does it really compare to Windows 7? We put the two side by side, and it doesn't come out to well for the older guy.
Apple in stunning hardware shocker! With the 27in iMac, Apple has really pushed the boat out. We know the 24in iMac is impressive so how could bigger be bad? However, there are still a couple of things we're not sure about . And yes Magic Mouse we're looking at you.
The iMac isn't the only machine that Apple refreshed. The MacBook gets a much-needed chassis overall that really brings it up to speed in the quality stakes. Is it truly now fit for business?
