I needed a powerful laptop to run matlab simulations and 3D Gaming, and looked at several different companies and wound up with the W520. This is the best laptop i've ever owned. For a full-fledged workstation, I did not expect the battery to last longer than 3 hours, but with the Optimus technology, I can get up to 8-9 hours on a single charge (also due in part to it's gigantic 92 Wh battery). Also, unless I am running a graphically intesive program, this laptop does not get hot.

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.
