Cons

Recent price drops ($399 for 32GB & $495 for 64GB) make this much more attractive.

I bought 64GB model to replace old Motorola XOOM and very happy. Basically a portable Windows tablet and familiar territory for me.

Strong case reeks quality as does screen OS, etc. Free 200GB MS Cloud storage for 2 years, free Skype for 12 months are added bonuses.

Full USB v3.0 allows many devices to interconnect. My Logitech wireless mini keyboard/touchpad works exactly the same as on my PC.

Don't discount Microsoft yet. The price drops mean it is now competitive with Android tablets. I own an iPad but found Apple's IOS too restrictive and completely non-expandable.

Have a look at the Surface 2 RT before you bypass it. I highly recommend it.

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.
