It happens to all of us: we get bored. Excel loses its interest and the afternoon stretches out like a wet weekend. All that is required is a short go on a game, but the IT department has banned all games from the office network. Or have they? If you have a fast connection to the Internet and have the Shockwave plugin installed as part of your Web browser, your afternoon can be quietly entertaining - but not very productive. The Nabisco Web site at www.nabiscoworld.com has an array of time wasting (but enjoyable) Shockwave-based games ranging from the Chips Ahoy Chipulator puzzle game to the Ritz Ball Toss, which simulates a fair ground game where you throw balls at Kewpie dolls for points, using the mouse. The amazing thing about these games is that they look as good and play as well as $79.95 worth of software used to, only about five years ago. Just remember that you have no chance at all of convincing anyone that you are working.

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.
