Does not work 100% with Mac

Neat printer until you try and use the printer with a Mac. Even with the updated software (Lion 10.7) and HP drivers, printing is an issue. Zero help from HP too. With a PC no problem. Solution for Mac users is to purchase a Canon, Samsung etc printer.

I have had ongoing problems with the wireless networking, wireless networking and usb connectivity. The wireless works for a couple of hours the mysteriously stops working. I can't the usb drivers to install properly. It's been pretty frustrating. I guess you get what you pay for.

I was pleasantly surprised by this printer. It was certainly priced well! Also, although not super fast, it did produce very nice output. Even photos were OK. Mind you, I didn't connect this wirelesly as such. I connected it using ethernet cable to my Wifi Hub. So I had no network issues. I installed Windows 7 drivers from the HP site without issues. I was also happy to see that the printing from iPhone/iPad worked wirelessly! Don't know how it does that, but I love it!

I have had this printer since December 2010; installation still fails because drivers will not install - we are now May 2011. But 'Wifi' you say? It must be great but not even USB cable connection has been achieved here. 'Uninstall' will not do so so cleanly, leaving files all over the disk so apparently you only get one run at installation and after that even the Scrubber program does not help.
I am about to throw the printer out and find a colour laser that has real working installation software; that means at least I don't lose everything by having to reinstall Windows7.
This has got to be a printer to beware of; there are no real answers to the problem coming out of HP that I have read.

How the heck does HP expect me to connect this in an office with no WPS!!! There should be a warning on the box in giant bold font. Another example of HP cutting corners.

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.
