Pros
I like the fact that it has a USB port..it was one of the main reasons that I bought it. Plus the fact that it is Windows run not Apple. It is slim and easy to handle and the screen is easy on the eye.
Cons
I absolutely hate Office 2013. Hate it with a passion. I find it hard to navigate through different areas and was surprised that there is nothing physically installed on the tablet...I know this because I went to look for the uninstall for the Office program :). The box is empty. And I find it hard to use the Store app. Very hard to navigate through it.

I really wanted a tablet that had ports and Windows as the core. I find it really hard to navigate through the screens to find things and the 'help' button is next to no help. I'm not going to give up on this machine though, I'm just going to have to find a way to learn all the ins and outs. I really do hate Office 2013. I want Office 07 because it has to be the most user friendly Office I have encountered but the machine tells me it is not compatible with my Surface. Crap! I also find it hard to get through different apps to find the one I'm looking for. Makes me frustrated.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.

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.
