just bought this one which atually came with a GeFirce 520 so it must have been updated since this review, only paid 578 after cash back and ws also sceptical about teh Acer brand
so far it's excellent and out performs anything else i've looked at in this price bracket

This laptop gets hot. The cooler starts every 45 seconds and makes a stupid noise. Overheating. Has only one speaker. No bluetooth. web cam is poor. integrated microphone is bad, in rest is ok :)

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.
