Overall normal use is great.
Laptop sticks not compatible, and touchpad not great .

Personally I love the Acer that I bought 5 months ago at Walmart. The price is fantastic for how well my chromebook works. Now I do side work online, and have had no problem with keeping up with it. Security with this unit seems of high priority. Now you would think that it would put considerable limitations on what you can accomplish. A normal user would'nt even notice. Only downside, which is not a big one depending on usage, is using a broadband laptop stick. I found out after I bought one from T-Mobile. T-Mobile laptop sticks are not compatible with chromebook. I even did my research before I bought, but found no such info. Now I know.....The second slow down was the touchpad. Only for the fact that it's touchy sometimes or at certain spots. Sometimes not at all. I find myself trying to scroll a page and instead of one upward or downward motion I have to repeat about three times to get the touch action completed. If anyone that has used a touchpad can understand what I mean. Overall it is a very handy semi lap or net-book.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
