Pros
Long Battery Life, Very Reliable, Very Sturdy
Cons
Weighs way too much and very bulky.
• • •

While the computer itself is great, the big deal breaker for me was how heavy and bulky it is.

I picked this baby up on the refurbished stack for $1,500 in Sept 2011 and haven't looked back.

Did not get the DVD which make it weigh in at 1.6 instead of the 1.8.

The i7 processor SCREAMS.
Only running 4Gb of RAM with Win7 64 Pro but no issues.

I really love this laptop - especially when I am not using it and it is in my bag - she is LIGHT !

If you can get one - Do it !

microphone

Very disappointing performance on this laptop. I upgraded from the 2530P which was a good and reliable machine. The microphone on the 2540P only works intermittantly and is of poor quality when it works. Why would a company put poor parts in an upgraded model? Very disappointing. I would definitely not recommend this computer to others following this experience.

I've been using a 2540P for 4months and cant say there is anything i've found wrong with the thing. (my fist serious computer was a hp3000 circa 1981) Dual boot linux with XP,both work fine as does a win7 virtual box session on either. I get a couple of hours out of the battery, but havent really struck anything that still gives that life after a few months of being hauled from state to state (mine to mine). I'm not likely to ever shell out the $3549 mentioned for one, but for the corporate traveller any IT department would be safe from a manager's complaints if this machine were an option.

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.
