The motherboard incorporates "ASUS Thermal Armor": a shell designed to offer the motherboard enhanced protection from heat as well as improve air flow. According to ASUS this is the first time a motherboard has incorporated thermal protection of this kind, with the company citing a temperature reduction of up 13 per cent thanks to Thermal Armor.

According to ASUS, "Military-standard certified TUF components and the motherboard itself are tested extensively during development to ensure they can withstand great stress and survive in very harsh, high-intensity environments." The company offers a five-year warranty for the motherboard.

The mother board includes four DDR3 DIMM slots for up to 32GB of RAM, two PCIe 2.0 x16 expansion card slots, four SATA 6Gbps connections, four SATA 3Gbps connections and eSATA and USB 3.0 support.

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.
