In some cases there are technical ways to get around the advertisements that pop up, but to my mind, if that is what keeps the service free we are only shooting ourselves in the foot to remove them - and it beats paying. If you are lucky enough to have a large computer monitor, or even two monitors, you can easily move the ad box to a corner of the screen where it won't bother you too much. Of the free ISPs that use an advertisement box, on average the ads take up only 7-9 per cent of screen space - not a lot. You may even find there are some neat things on the ad box, too, and come to like it.

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