Keyboard is Amazing, Build Quality is Quite Good
No Backlight, Bloated with Useless Software
• • •

Everything about this laptop (specs, keyboard, battery) are amazing for its price range. Not so fussed about gaming capabilities since it was designed to be a business laptop. The only issues are that it doesn't have a backlight and the pre-installed windows 7 has heaps of useless applications such as the trial version of Norton (seriously Lenovo?),

Overall, I would recommend this laptop to people looking to buy a business laptop with a budget constraint.




Look Good, Well Built, Good Keyboard
Graphics Card Sucks, Struggles to Run TF2 at med-high setting at anything over 25fps, Fan Whines
• • •

This laptop sucks for gaming (Comon, 25fps on med-high on tf2?). I was given this as a replacement for another Ideapad lenovo laptop that failed and this is even worse. It is meant to switch between the integrated graphics and the dedicated, but sometimes it gets stuck on integrated and need a restart to get it back.

Good Work/Biz laptop, but sucks for gaming. I would not have bought this, it was given to me as a replacement.

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.
