The Lexmark Genesis printer has a design that's interesting to say the least. It looks like it should be pressing shirts in a laundromat rather than scanning and printing in an office, but the upright design does make it stand out from the competition. We were initially confused as to how documents would stay in the scanning tray, but a small lip allows you to securely place them during scanning.

A 4.3in LCD screen offers access to a small range of applications and extra features — you can print off directions to the nearest ink supplier, for example. 802.11n Wi-Fi lets you connect the printer to a wireless network, and a rated output of up to 30 colour and 33 monochrome pages means the Genesis should be as fast as its competitors like the Canon PIXMA MG8150 and HP Photosmart eStation All-in-One.

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.
