touch pad, heat, shiny screen, poor battery life

this is an ok laptop but i wouldn't recommend this to others if you don't have a cooling pad. i have this one and without the cooling pad it overheats and locks up due to overheat. not good. also it is very slow and does not run battlefield so good. D: on the other hand graphics are pretty good. i bought office 2010 and it runs nicely. ok laptop overall. battery is only 1 hour and 15 minutes though.




not much
overheats and the mouse pad

This laptop isnt that good i wouldnt recommend buying it. it overheats 24/7, I have it on a hard surface and it doesnt make a diffence. Im going buy another acer laptop because they dont overheat and they are efficient.

I have purchased it in Australia. This is my second laptop. I can say this is the best value for money. I was using the DELL Inspiron 1525. I was always get irritated with the battery. but, G62 had a great experiance with battery. I can run around 4 hrs once charged. screen is awesome. Performance id good comparitive to other laptops. Indicators for every action makes easy to use (Charging / power on etc...).




nothing about this product
the warranty

I bought a G62 Laptop from HP and it is still under warranty. I am having a problem with the battery, so I called tech support. They told me the reason the battery keeps messing up is because the software is corrupted. The only problem is in oder for the problem to go away I need to pay them $169.00 even though my computer is under warranty. He told me that I didn't do anything to cause this problem but I need to pay for it. I believe they sold me a computer that they knew would eventually have a problem so that I can keep paying them money. This is a fraud. Don't buy a HP G62 because you will have the same problem.




Light & Great keyboard
Shiny screen

At first I was apprehensive when getting this laptop to totally replace my 4 year old desktop, but I was pleasantly surprised it outperforms it. Not only was windows 7 good, it also came with office 2010 starter edition, which for me as a student is great. I've attached my old monitor to the vga output on the side and run duel screens, one with excel and the other firefox. I've had it now for three months and would recomend this laptop to anybody.

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.

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.
