I heard all the hype, I thought maybe this technology had matured enough, wow was I wrong. Where do I begin.

1. No file system as such, had to download and pay for 3rd party apps just to organize and use my files.
2. If your happy to only ever use the iCloud, that's fine. But as for sharing or for that matter updating your file out of the iCloud, good luck. Yes you can pay $5 a month for dropdev, etc. I cannot fathom why we need to pay for simple fuctionality. Wherever I open a file, I should be able to simply save my updates to the exact same location.
3. If I want to print, I'll have to buy one of only 11 printers capable of airprint. I can't print to my own printer. It's a jokey
4. Any real functionality has to be purchased separately.

Totally my fault should have purchased the Acer A500 with android...

I recommend not buying it cause they will just invent something even better sooner or later and the first iPhone had a better camera lolz

I find the iPad 2 Over hyped.It has serious Camera flaws namely lack of Mega Pixels.The lack of FLASH is a WTF? Rumours abound of an i Pad 3 which one would reasonably expect to have solved these two problems.I remain dissapointed overall and will wait for the i Pad 3.

I live in Belfast qued up 1hr before shop opened got my Ipad 2 64 gig with magnetic blue cover and hdmi out no problems only about 80 people infront of me so glad live in Belfast now. Its great having it so good to use sound build quality and app store is quality its able to display everything on to a tv and its benchmark tests for graphic performance is way ahead of android tablets running honeycomb and the games already available are so much better.

Ipad 2 is definetly worth the wait, I have an android tablet device and its a pain in the ass open source is not so good after all full of malicious apps, viruses, replicated apps and tons of rubbish takes ages to filter through find something decent and has poor search filters. Ontop of that android os is draining my battery insanely at times randomly jumped from 18 percent down to less than 1 percent in the space of 2 minutes ffs.

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
