Cons

This apprears to be a very nice camera, but I recently bought a Fujifilm X10 because its more retro, has an excellent viewfinder(once you get accustomed to it)and the lens zooms by rotating it which is much more natural for DSLR users. There are several quality cameras in this class, but I immediately rejected those without a viewfinder, its a critical part of the photographic experience for me. I got mine online from an authorized dealer for $575, a bargin. The only negative is that the very desirable lens shade is way too expensive at $65. So far I love this camera and would highly recommend it over any of its viewfinerless competitors. The GX1 is a very nice camera, but still too much like a high end point and shoot. I know that to a large degree enjoying photography is the viseral feel of the equipment and I've been taking pictures for over 50 years and I know what I like. Buy the X10 instead if you're adding this type of camera to your collection, its got a great feel.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
