With an i7 processor and 8Gb ram the Sony Vaio Duo 11 is a powerful cross between laptop and tablet. The key is to recognize that it's not an iPad nor a laptop. In fact were it not for the absence of a trackpad it would be the perfect device in terms of form factor. The screen is brilliant and the backlit keys are a great bonus for a unit of this type. No other cross over device has the versatile connectivity options as the Sony Vaio Duo 11. Battery life is not great so the optional sheet battery is a must have plus it has a slot to store the digitizer pen. Unlike others I have no problem with the viewing angle in laptop mode. Although not a brick in terms of weight you probably won't be holding it in one hand for extended periods of time. The Sony Vaio Duo 11 is not for everyone so don't buy it on impulse. I think it compares well against the Microsoft Surface Pro and presents a better value overall (i5 processor configuration for both). As a Windows 8 hybrid the Sony Vaio Duo 11 deserves a close look.

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.
