Installing and configuring a webcam

In the audio tuning wizard, the first thing you will need to do is select your Primary Audio Capture device, which should be your sound card. Select it and click Next to move to the Microphone setup. Make sure it's plugged in, as you will be asked to speak into it to check the volume levels. If you see the indicator bar move when you speak into it, but you don't hear anything, go into your volume properties and make sure that it isn't muted. Double-click on the speaker icon in your system tray to bring this up. If the Microphone slider is not shown here then add it by going to Options-Properties and checking the box next to Microphone from the scroll-down list .

Tip: if your microphone is sounding a little too quiet, you can give it a boost of around 20db by checking the Mic Gain box. This box appears when you click the Advanced button located below the Microphone slider in the Volume Control.

The screen that follows the microphone setup is the speaker test. Once again, if you can't hear any sound after you've moved the slider to its maximum position, go into the Volume Control and make sure the Wave or Master volume controls aren't muted.

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.
