Gigabyte's dual BIOS chip announcement was made at the Computex trade show

Gigabyte recently announced at Computex that its proprietary Dual BIOS technology will be extended to every GIGABYTE motherboard with immediate effect. Dual BIOS provides a backup BIOS that automatically repairs or replaces the primary BIOS when necessary (when the primary BIOS fails) without any user intervention.

The result is a vastly reduced RMA rate (Return Merchandise Authorization -- when faulty goods are returned to the manufacturer for repair or replacement). First introduced by GIGABYTE in 1999, Dual BIOS has traditionally been reserved for only high-end GIGABYTE motherboards due to the cost of an additional BIOS chip.

"Most motherboard RMA issues are related to the BIOS and in the past Dual BIOS has drastically reduced RMA rates on our high-end products," said Jackson Hsu, Motherboard Product Manager at GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd. "By extending Dual BIOS technology to our mainstream and entry level motherboards we are significantly differentiating our products from the competition and providing our customers with a better quality product."

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
