It was a tragically boring sunday afternoon when i was alone in a starbucks gazing at my smart phone screen searching for something that would complete all of my dream come trues, I came upon this marvelous high end gaming computer. I was reading in tumblr what computers are considered quality gaming PCs and this was mentioned as being able to run games as graphically intense as Minesweeper and the like. I was awestruck that such a computer could run such a stupendous single player strategy phenomenon. I woudln't consider myself as a techy guy but I do know my way around a keyboard and I knew at first sight that this was the gaming computer for me. Being the man I am today I wasn't interested in low graphic quality games like Call of Duty and Skyrim because you could see the pixels and the low resolution of the models. I was looking for something more. As soon as I clicked the order now button on my phone an urge of excitement bursted out of my stomach into a deep and long bowel movement. I would have been embarrassed but alas I was to be expecting one of the best high end PCs in the USA! I then in that moment dashed with unrelenting speed back to my motel room furiously eating up everything in my fridge until my package arrived three days later. I stalked the mail man as he strolled up to my doorstep with a package that took up both his arms, steadily getting aggravated at the pace he was walking. Once he reached the porch of my first story apartment I lunged out of the 3' tall bushes and barreled into the deliverer snatching up the box and sprinting through my open apartment door onto my bed. I shredded up the protective box cover remembering to spare the bubble wrap for later, as I had a slight addiction to popping sounds. I booted up the computer and went straight to the pre-loaded game of Minesweeper. As I started a game on expert (being an experienced player myself) I was able to make a run through with ease getting more than ten times the FPS that I get on my phone! The overall FPS of this game on this computer was over 60 FPS!!!!!! This brought tears to my eyes to have such a high resolution HD game at more than 2 FPS. Thank you HP for making such a wonderful high end gaming computer at such a low price of 1399.99! I only had to sell all of my favorite personal belongings and my modem to buy this perfect gaming BEAST!

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
