This thing broker after about a month of light use and being kept in my bag (not dropped either).
Kogan eventually replaced it so I was able to take it on holiday to Bali, where 30c temperatures meant the matt finish started to peel off (it now looks like it's been in a fire), and the battery will no longer charge up.
As to how it worked when it actually did? - Really slow page update. Main-screen has a whole bunch of options which just clutter it up and because of the slow refresh you will never use, and actually finding the book you've just loaded onto it is totally hit or miss and really frustrating. FAIL!

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.
