Upon checking limited help, I am unable to ascertain what to do when the "Source not available" message appears on the dashboard. No instructions as to what the user should do, nor why the correctly connected "C" drive on a laptop computer is not accessible by the program.

In a somewhat hetrogeneous "PC" setup here, I needed a solution for "disaster recovery" even if it was an older hard drive failing. Having worked as a sys admin in a large company and knowing many of the pros and cons, I had a pretty good idea of what to look for. Background sync as a continuous backup is a very good idea. Set and forget for the instant backup gives instant piece of mind - well almost - the recovery process would confirm that. The down side to this is the Instant Backup only sets the date as the plan. Upgrading to the Backup Premium is almost a must. A few other small bugs in the overall setup are not show stoppers. The obvious choice is to buy the Premium but the cost is not obvious. To update the versions of Premium the package did want to reinstall and like has already been said a constant self marketing from the company is distracting. The restore process defaults are not clear, "Where's My Files???" - Just select the "Show deleted Files" in the restore panel. I would have prefered an Image Backup plan instead of selecting file types but I realize that if I toast one of these machines it would be best to buy a new one and retrieve the assets from the backup. Finally, make sure all the clients have the same setup, Identify each machine differently, expect and initial startup time for the computers to get backed up and relax with some piece of mind. The non-recurring cost of the drive and the software is much cheaper than lost memories, documents, music or time to get it all back. I'm not looking forward to really testing the recovery process but I have much more confidence now.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
