Agfa SnapScan Touch

Colourful as it is, the SnapScan Touch has more going for it than playful marketing gimmickry. Offering a convenient USB interface and capable 600 x 1200 resolution, this speedy unit delivers images with fine detail and accurate colour. The scanner's tidy bundle of software includes Corel PrintHouse Magic for image editing and Caere's OmniPage LE 5.0 for OCR and PageKeeper for document management.

The shipping version of the SnapScan Touch I tested was a breeze to install and painless to use. The unit looks and operates much like a copy machine: pop a document under its lid, push one of the four buttons on the outer shell - for scan, print, OCR or e-mail - and it jumps into action, completing the task or launching the application you selected. I also found it easy to use the accompanying Agfa ScanWise 1.10 scanner software for tweaking images. But missing are more-advanced image-control features like exposure, gamma, highlight and shadow adjustment tools found in similarly priced competitors such as the Microtek ScanMaker X6.

The SnapScan Touch is best for novices and casual users, but its apt combination of accessible features and good scanning quality make it a worthy choice for the average small-office or home user. And those cute little handles don't hurt either.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
