Digital Star Power-600

For under $3000, this little system provides scorching performance for productivity users as well as gamers.

The machine is well put together and is housed in a stable ATX mid-tower case. Inside, it is very clean, and the sheet metal has been buffed to a shine. Safety has also been considered: all sharp edges have been folded back.

For the enthusiast, there is room to tinker - the case provides two free 5.25in bays, plus one free 3.5in bay. On the motherboard lie three DIMM slots for memory (two free), as well as five PCI slots (three free), but there are no ISA slots. Upgrading the CPU might be tricky, as the power supply sits directly in front of it and would need to be removed first.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
