What's on offer and how does it work? The Australian market for free ISPs is fairly new and there aren't many players at this stage, but the basics are all there. Free ISPs aim to provide a service similar to that provided by a paid service, but funded by advertising dollars instead of your hard-earned dosh. In the words of one free ISP, "Our service is expected to be a high quality service comparable to any of the paid access ISPs in Australia" (Go Connect). Only time will tell whether they deliver on the promise, but if you pay nothing, there is nothing to lose in trying them. There are two models of free ISPs at the moment: one offers untimed access to a limited number of Web sites and services, the other offers untimed access to an unlimited number of Web sites and services, but a program displays advertisements on your computer screen while you are connected to the Net.

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.
