According to the Google Australia blog the service will initially only be available to some users, but should be rolled out to any logged-in Google account in Australia by the end of the week. The main use for +1 will be on Google's organic search results, but Web sites are also able to integrate +1 buttons — the Google Australia blog says sites like Kogan and the Trading Post will have +1 buttons on their sites soon. The Kogan Web page for the Agora 12in Chromium OS-powered laptop already features a +1 button.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
