So-called Plug and Play hardware has not always been quite as simple as advertised. Often, when you first plug in a USB device under Windows 98, you have to check the folders in the installation CD-ROM until you find the right driver. Windows 2000 is smarter about finding drivers: it'll sweep through all the folders in any drive you point it to during an installation. In the Found New Hardware Wizard, select the source for drivers (say, your A: floppy drive or CD-ROM drive), and wait for Windows 2000 to find the right driver. If you don't have an installation disk, you still may not be out of luck. Windows 2000 has built-in drivers for much hardware that Windows 98 did not - such as Imation SuperDisk drives. If Windows 2000 doesn't include the driver that you need, and the manufacturer does not provide it, you may still be able to substitute a downloaded Windows 98 driver for some devices.

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.
