You could be mistaken for thinking the national pastime (well, besides watching sport) is for Aussies to take the piss out of each other. And while there are tonnes of US-based satirical sites on the Net (think The Onion), there are now a number of local startups joining the fray. The Chaser (which has passed its 10th issue) pokes fun at the usual suspects, from the PM to Kerry Packer, Alan Jones to Jeff Kennett, and anyone else in the public spotlight. The writing is witty and takes a very different spin on current events. As well as covering the conventional areas of news and sport, the site also includes Web missions (not necessarily of an Australian nature: mission 3, for example, is to find a site dedicated to Pamela Anderson that contains no photos of her nude or semi-nude) and PackerWatch (where you can work out the time it takes for Kerry Packer to earn your salary - usually less than five minutes for us mere mortals). Definitely some light relief.

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.
