I purchased this not so long ago and was imediately impressed by the quality of the unit. Its packed with features you would normaly find in more expencive brands.
That said, I do have one big issue with this unit. The lack of a second digital tuner. If you remember the old VCR recorders, if you wanted to record a program from the VCR you just hit the record button and then turned the TV over to another program you wanted to watch. This is how you would have to do it with this unit.
The other "small" gripe with this unit and thats the lack of access to net TV and movies from the net. What a waist of a very good network / internet feature. I give it a 4.5 out of 5

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.
