First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Samsung RC530-S09AU laptop
A 15.6in laptop with a great configuration for tough workloads
This Samsung laptop features a 15.6in screen and has a great array of features for its price. Its chassis houses an Intel Core i7 (second generation) CPU, as well as 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GT540M graphics adapter and a 750GB hard drive. In addition, you get an optical drive that can read Blu-ray and burn DVDs, a 6-cell battery and a usual smattering of connectivity features. It weighs around 2.65kg so it's definitely not the lightest notebook on the market. Compare prices at.

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.
