The Boy Scout within us all longed for a Swiss army knife when we were kids, but the children of today are far more tech-savvy and the simple knife has undergone a modern overhaul. That wide eyed little kid can now join techno-geek big kids with the new Swissmemory USB Victorinox from Swissbit.
This model comes equipped with a 128MB USB flash drive which works flawlessly and is easily extended from the unit. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS and appears as a removable drive, which means just plug it in and it's ready for use. 128MB is plenty of storage space for the transfer of smaller files between two computers but wouldn't be enough for music or movies. The package comes with Securelock software so you can protect your data from being erased and secure it from prying eyes.
The hinge on the Swissmemory is slightly loose but it sits in the USB slot without any problems and fits at a 90 degree angle parallel to the PC case. The unit obviously comes with the standard retractable knife but is also equipped with a pen, nail file, flat head screwdriver, scissors and a red LED light.
As with most of these styles of knives, the accessories aren't good for regular use and tend to seem like a bit of a novelty but they do their job well enough. The unit is very cute, finished with a transparent red outer casing and emblazoned with the Swiss Army Knife logo that we all know and love. The Swissmemory USB Victorinox would make a techno-cool and convenient addition to the key ring while also adding an edge of style. It is available in sizes up to 1GB.

GGG Evaluation Team
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.
