Software affiliates come in two main varieties: a link to a software store or a link to the author's site. The key issue in the software category is the way referral fees are tracked. It is not a problem buying a full product from a retailer such as Amazon, but difficulties arise when someone downloads a shareware version and buys it at some time in the future. For example, Xara Software tracks its referrals through a cookie. A visitor downloads the shareware and if they ultimately buy the product, that cookie must be on the PC they are using when making the purchase, otherwise you don't get the referral fee. Carefully planned shareware programs can work, but require close monitoring. The most reliable option is to find an online store and link directly to products. Some to try are MicroWarehouse (up to a 7 per cent referral, www.warehouse.com), Amazon (www.amazon.com), or for games try Dragons Den (up to 15 per cent, www.dragon.ca).

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.
