First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Get creative and get burning

Got a burning desire to back-up data or create your own CDs? Creative Pacific thinks it has just the thing for you - a new $649 internal CD burner from Creative Technology.
The CD-RW Blaster 2224 writes at 2x (that's up to 300Kbps), and reads CD-ROM data at 24x. That holds an advantage over other drives on the market, says Kamil Gurgen, marketing manager for Creative Pacific: "The current generation of CD burners have a very slow read speed making them unproductive for general purpose use, thus requiring the customer to have a second high speed CD-ROM just for data reading."
Multimedia CDs including photos, video and music, can be created with the Blaster 2224 utilising Easy CD Creator software, which is included with the drive. Additionally, DirectCD software, which is also bundled, allows for users to drag-and-drop files onto a CD as easily as with a floppy disk, the company says.
