The Dual Screen.
Despite all the reviews, and I've read them all, apparently ASUS are NOT supplying the Stylus.

As soon as I saw the Dual Screen, I really wanted it..badly. I do a lot of demonstrations, and this is ideal. I picked up my Taichi on 15/1/2013 as I had pre-ordered it in October 2012. It's the most I have ever paid for a laptop, so am expecting big things. I used it for a presentation this week, and it was fantastic, the clients were amazed! However, using it today, I have found that it gets extremely hot, even the power pack is hot to touch. I am really really disappointed with ASUS Australia, as all the reviews say it comes with a stylus, even the PC World Australia. They were RUDE, and sent me a 1 line email say it does not come supplied. Not even a word of where I would purchase one. I am really concerned about the heat. I don't find it a problem not have a touch screen on the notebook side, as I use it mainly for all of my "Desk top Functions". I am still coming to terms with Windows 8, but that is a whole other story!

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.
