I love it,

Runs Crysis, runs everything and without breaking a sweat, wireless works well and integrates with my 3 LCD Tv's and PS3. Movies on demand from every room.

Be aware this is a Desktop replacement, very powerful not that comfortable to transport.

For a little over 1K (What I paid) this has to be the best laptop on the market.




The Graphics Card
Battery draining i7

Why is Intel shoving i7's into laptops? i7's are gas-guzzling monsters. An i5 would be much more appropriate.

Almost all software is being hardware accelerated these days, so consumers would be wise to match an efficient CPU with a husky graphics card. That is why I think an i5 with AMD Radeon would have been the perfect combo of processing power and battery life.

There are better options, though! The DV6 also is available with an AMD Fusion option - where a powerful GPU and CPU are fused onto one piece of silicon to cut down electrical drain. I'm waiting for the DV6 with AMD Fusion.

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.

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.

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.
