Altec Lansing Octane 7 PC speakers
- Bright highs, minimal distortion at maximum volume, good looks, good soundstage
- Overwhelming bass, Muddy mids
Judging from its sound quality alone, it isn't hard to find faults with the Altec Lansing Octane 7 (VS 4621). But for $149 inc VAT the Altec Lansing Octane 7 has enough power to let you feel the bass and bright highs which made it just a good pair of PC speakers with unique design.

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.
