The 870P's features include (big breath here): a 3.4GHz P4 processor, two 60GB 7200rpm hard disks in RAID configuration, 256MB Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics controller, multi-card reader plus built-in 640 x 480 pixel CCD Web camera and analog TV tuner.
The TV tuner comes with mini-antenna and infrared remote control. It also ships with Cyberlink PowerCinema 3's separate remote control to watch and record TV, create photo slide shows and listen to music.
The 870P includes 2GB of dual-channel 400MHz DDR SDRAM. The 870P also has Gigabit Ethernet, but not wireless networking.
Its graphics performance was very strong--11,454 points scored in the 3DMark 2001 benchmark, and Unreal Tournament 2003 testing returned 143fps in the Face3 map and 81fps for the Inferno map.
It's good to see Pioneer back the 870P with a three-year on-site warranty, and, at the time of writing, throw in a set of Creative Inspire 5.1 5100 speakers and offer a free upgrade to an 8X DVD-/+ RW drive.

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