Pros
Very good sound quality
Cons
Convoluted system to manually input CD data if this is not avaliable automatically.
• • •

This unit has great sound, better still if you use a high quality external DAC (although the inbuilt DAC is very respectible), and maybe add a quality power cable as well.
The down side is that it has to be the most temperamental home appliance I've ever owned. It can take quite a while to power up, switch between screens, manually loading and/or editing CD info is convoluted and occasionally doesn't read your CD's, and then won't allow you to eject them. There are solutions to most of these issues via the Olive website...but the question is 'why does this have to be so convoluted in the first place?'
Nevertheless, once these things are eventually dealt with...it's a mighty fine unit to sit back and enjoy listening to.

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.
