Pros
optical track-nub
Cons
no additional battery when connected to keyboard
• • •

I love it. Can't wait to get one when mobile broadband is available. It has everything I'm looking for and been waiting for.

One thing. WHY CAN'T CAMERA PEOPLE EVER FOCUS CORRECTLY!?!! Use the manual focus people!! Every time they try to show something up close, the camera is focused on the power cables in the background! JEEEZZZ!!

Pros
Gorilla glass, digitizer pen, full-size usb, full-size SD
Cons
Nothing I can find so far
• • •

One thing that isn't hyped nearly as much as it impresses me is the gorilla glass. I plan to purchase this to be used in school. I personally think this is a college student's dream; awesome security features, awesome note-taking with the pen, and the best durability of any tablet I've seen so far. This will hopefully lighten my backpack by at least 10 pounds (7lb lenovo lappy, and 3lbs of notepads).

Does the keyboard on the folio foldback so you can use this like a regular tablet while still in the folio, or do you have to take it out of the folio?

Pros
Digitizer Pen , Full size SD, USB. Great portfolio case w/keyboard & laser track pointer.
Cons
could use the arcsoft apps as on the Ideapad.
• • •

Very nice device, the digitizer pen and write software are a real plus for me as is the full size SD and USB wow great. I was hopping for a 10. tab with the pen after seeing the HTC flyer, and here it is, fantastic. Easy file transfer from external devices such as thumb drives and SD cards are so important. i-Pad killer for me? Yes, syncing i-Tunes every time I want to transfer a file or two is a real pain.

Pros
Finally an on board stylus!!
Cons
Hoping I can connect this to an LCD projector.
• • •

Thanks Lenovo for taking what Apple introduced and making it useable for the rest of us!!

The iPad for me is a disappointment. I'm not spending that kind of money to fuel Jobs argument with Adobe around Flash!!

Jobs insists that I use my finger. My finger is not a stylus. It lacks accuracy. I also didn't want to purchase a sylus that I have to hang around my neck or carry elsewhere.

I just want to know when and where I can buy it!!

Pros
Digitizer Pen, some unique ports
Cons
iPad killer? Definitely not
• • •

I am a big fan of the X series of tablets and so I was wondering if the pen was pressure sensitive. They didn't mention it so I'm assuming that doesn't but I was hoping this would be the portable sketchbook that artist have been wanting for years

Pros
Finally, a way to replace paper
Cons
Need more color
• • •

Wow, why did it take this long for someone to finally understand that tablets shouldn't be simply a toy for the kiddies. It is almost as if I should have heard an angel's chorus when this thing was announced. Is it really that hard to figure out that many people would like to take notes without having to store reams of paper? Could I have been the only one who wanted to write with a pen and then hit save? In my mind, this is a no brainer. I will most definitely buy this when it comes out. This will help me on the job greatly. I can see creating notes and then saving it to evernote and never having to hunt for a paper with something I jotted down. Thank you Lenovo!!!!!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
