The PS Vita features a five-inch OLED screen with dual analogue sticks and motion sensors. It is available in a WiFi only model and a WiFi/3G model which retails for $348 and $418 respectively.

Australian-based game developers including Nnooo, Tantalus, Big Ant and Torus are also confirmed to be developing for the platform.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

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

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.
