Upgrader - USB connectivity

Step 1: Power off your computer and remove its cover. Make sure you are always grounded by keeping yourself in contact with the computer chassis at all times - ideally, you should be wearing an anti-static wrist strap.

Step 2: Locate an empty PCI slot (if you have many, then which one you choose is up to you). Remove the backing plate of the slot and carefully slide the card into place. Make sure you secure it by screwing it down.

Step 3: Before putting the cover back on, boot up your PC to make sure that the operating system finds the card and installs the necessary software. Go into the Device Manager and see if the name of your new device is displayed. If all's well, you can cover up your PC again.

Note: if you are installing this device on a non-USB system, and are using Windows 95B, you may need to install the USB supplement from the Windows CD-ROM. As a general rule, if your system has an AGP port, this supplement should already be installed.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
