Nice colour
Quality and price of replacement parts
• • •

I bought this computer a month ago and the screen has a crack right through the middle of the display. According to the HP call centre, I pressed the touchscreen too hard ... and it cracked. I reckon it is a design flaw (too much plastic and flexibility in the casing). I have over 30 years experience in IT and I'm very particular about how I treat my gadgets. I've had a Toshiba touchscreen hybrid for 2 years without any hardware problems at all. However, I’m also pragmatic ... I realise that sometimes, it happens!
The next shock was to discover the price of HP replacement parts. The replacement screen from HP is 78% of the initial purchase price!!!!
My dilemma now is deciding whether to replace the screen or buy another computer because of the potential design flaws. I'm concerned the display will just crack again.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.




Aesthetically pleasing, solid construction, keyboard spacing.
Price reflected in screen quality not terrible but no great, heavy.

Overall i'm happy with the purchase. I have not had any issues with the display, and WiFi coverage seems acceptable if not fantastic. I'm using a wireless N connection and it fluctuates from 4-5 bars, approx 10m away from my router. Physical volume control buttons are terrible IMHO both location and feel. But hey, you don't need to use them. I have no issues with the level of i think it's indicative of the price, As SSD are getting cheaper and cheaper might be worth an upgrade? no easy drive access, but HP has a video on how to replace it on their website. I like the red housing makes a nice change... As for the screen flip feature I set it up like a tent to watch media when I'm traveling, you need to get the angles right though or you lose the picture pretty quickly, screen feels a bit old school that way, but doesn't really worry me. It's a bit heavy for it's size I kind of like that though, feels solid, tough. Battery life seems about average. I should mention the touch component of the screen is responsive and I have had no issues. To end I purchased mine in Australia from JBHIFI for $549AUD.




Nice design, good price
WLAN range abysmal, stuck pixels on many devices

Nice machine, but poor quality... Had to bring back two of it because of stuck pixels. The third was ok. WLAN range is abysmal. Cannot see a single wlan where my iphone sees four. Have to bring the x360 in a 2 Meter range to my router to be able to connect. Maybe the antenna is not connected. This machine goes back also.

Disappointed by the quality.

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.
