ARN review product

The ATI Radeon HD 5870 has 1600 stream processing units, 80 texture units and 2.15 billion 40 nanometre (nm) transistors. The graphics card features 1GB of GDDR5 RAM and is optimised for use with both the Windows 7 operating system and Microsoft Direct X 11. The HD 5870 provides up to 2.72 terafl ops of power and has an engine clock speed of 850MHz. Users can also take advantage of the card’s eyefi nity capability, which allows up to six separate monitors to be connected to a single GPU and operated as a single display. These can then display duplicated mode operations or extended mode, which extends the desktop across all displays. The card uses up to 188W when in full operation, which is reduced to 27W when idle. It supports a maximum VGA output resolution of 2048 x 1536 and a maximum HDMI 1.3 port output of 1920 x 1200. This increases to 2560 x 1600 when using DVI or DisplayPort outputs. Other features include OpenGL 3.2 support and image enhancement quality technology.

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.
