Bottom Line

Microsoft Windows Search 4.0 improves on the already impressive Windows Desktop Search and integrated search tools of Vista and Windows Server 2008, providing better manageability and streamlined performance. IT shops with mixed Windows versions will appreciate the strong support for legacy platforms (XP, Server 2003) and the fact that Microsoft continues to make its search technologies freely available.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
