User Friendly and After Y2K!

If you're a highly intelligent computer geek, what's the most productive thing to do with your mind? Read comics, of course!

User Friendly follows the adventures of the technical support team at a small Internet Service Provider somewhere in America. Sounds dull maybe, but besides the usual golf-addicted bosses and clueless customers, the team find themselves dealing with everything from geek love on IRC to animated dust bunnies and killer robots from Microsoft.

After Y2K! began in 1999 as a comic speculation about how computer nerds would cope when technological society collapsed as a result of the 2000 bug. It's still going today, largely due to an incredibly twisted plot involving plenty of sci-fi elements and cameo appearances by famous geeks both historical and contemporary. Cartoonist Nitrozac adds to the visual appeal of the strip with brilliant use of colour and animation.

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.
