Pros
LOVE the TOUGH LOOKING PANEL DESIGN and ports out the wazoo!
Cons

I just got mine a while back and I have to say I absolutely LOVE IT!!! Not sure what this DJ_ILKZ is on about with his fanboyism but even the 11inch is faster than his precious mac (650m vs 620m). I got mine with the 7970 and I'll be honest, was a little worried at potential catalyst driver issues, but the 680m was too far out of my reach and at only about a 5% increase in performance I thought I'd give amd a shot.
WOW is all I have to say!! This thing handles anything I throw at it and begs for more. I couldn't get the THX app to work either but sent them an email and within the hour a rep called me back and told me it had to be activated... =| .......
I was scared the red panel was gonna be a bit too much but it really looks mean and its not too showy, just showy enough if that makes sense? Anyway can't say much about the long haul because I haven't owned mine very long but I can say it smashes bf3, dishonoured, and borderlands2. it's not exactly for everyone but if you're a gamer that needs a relatively portable solution and have a bit of quid to spare, this is the laptop for you.

Just wanted to respond to the idiot above me.
You are comparing an i7 Windows 7 computer to a Macbook and saying the Mac is better value?
Please stop spreading such fanboy BS around to confuse people.

for this price this is not considered to be the best laptop for gaming i was in the market recently looking for gaming laptop and with countless hours of research for money etc... i went with a retina display macbook pro 15 inch with quad core i7 and the Nvidia Geforce 620m it runs battlefield 3 and such other demanding games on ultra on 1080p

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
