Pros
Sleek with touch
Cons
Software is a nightmare! No drive and bios is buggy
• • •

1st day using it, windows update disabled and keeps disabling itself when enabled, same for security center and windows defender (yes I am enabling it using the services screen run as admin, good luck for mums and dads..). Cannot activate windows and cannot add features by upgrading with an new (MSDN) serial. Can not do a factory restore (stuck in infinite loop) and cannot install a fresh clean copy of windows (asks for driver and no bios options other than ahci)

Initially thought the specs looked ok for the cash and was told by the sales staff that the ram was in 1 stick only but turns out the 8GB of ram is actually already spread across the 2 slots so would have to replace both sticks if wanting to upgrade.

I hate this laptop - I hate DELL!!! Stay away..............

Pros
Solid core components, slim, long battery life
Cons
10/100 ethernet
• • •

I've had this for about a week now, and I'm very satisfied with this. It would be nice to have gigabit ethernet, but so far that's the biggest downside. Not having an optical drive is pretty standard, and there are other models to choose from if that's a must-have.

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.

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.
