Great FullHD IPS screen, Great keyboard, Light weight, decent battery life
Forcepad takes some time to get used to
• • •

I really love this I7 laptop. I have an Asus N550 at home and the keyboard is much nicer on the folio 1040. The battery will last long enough to get through consequtive meetings on a single charge, but not a whole workday. The requrement for a VGA adapter is a bit annoying, but the laptop is so thin that there simply isn't room for it! But really - we're writing 2014 and the VGA connecters should have been phased out a long time ago (we still use them at work though). I updated the Forcepad and Wifi drivers, which improved performance markedly. I don't know which drivers were used in this review.

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.
