Nasser Kaviani Bought a Toshiba Z830/00T Ultrabook. Packed up after 4 months in the middle of my overseas trip when it left me in a very bad situation with no computer when I needed it most. It just stopped booting after getting too hot and noisy. So, an engineering marvel but pain in the back side in terms of performance!! Not happy at all with this piece of junk!

This is my first Toshiba and will be my last, I'm actually really disapointed. It's slow, unresponsive at times, the graphics are quite bad for a mid-range laptop, the speakers are terrible - I have to use headphones when trying to skype because the volume is just that low.

After having had 2 Dell laptops and giving Toshiba a try, I'm afraid I'm heading back to Dell for my next buy.

Purchased direct from Toshiba USA around five weeks ago. After 11 days, the R830 failed, the disc was formated and rebuild. OK for one week, then problems started again. Toshiba's support is less than hopeless. They cannot decide if it's hardware or software/hardware related, so choose to do nothing. Our first and last experience with Toshiba. Previous laptops all Fujitsu and never a problem.

This is a wonderful machine. I got mine a couple of weeks ago and have been pleased so far. The downside is the cooling fan. It's on all the time, and it's so loud. I don't have a lot of business meetings, but if I did, it would be too loud for me to have in a conference room giving a presentation. It's too bad, because it's a business machine.

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.
