First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Lenovo's end of financial year sale is on now

Lenovo is no stranger when it comes to hosting big online sales, and the company's end of financial year sale is shaping up to be a useful money saver. On offer are professional ThinkPad models, in addition to home and small business-focused ThinkPad Edge models.
With third generation Intel Core CPUs already being implemented by Lenovo — we've already reviewed the ThinkPad Edge E530, which features a third-gen Core i7 — this sale can be considered a run-out of sorts for the models using the second generation chips. They are still great chips that offer fast and efficient performance, so you shouldn't balk at picking one up, especially at some of the prices that are listed.
One of the most attractive options is the ThinkPad T420, which comes with an Intel Core i5-2450M CPU and a 14in screen. It can be customised to include 4GB of RAM, a 1600x900 panel, a 720p webcam, Bluetooth, high-end Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 Wi-Fi and a 160GB solid state drive for $1354.78. Not too shabby at all. At the other end of the spectrum, you can pick up a ThinkPad Edge E320 for only $499. This features a 13.3in screen, an Intel Core i3-2350M CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.
