I have had nothing but trouble with this since I bought it. first the touch screen stopped working, then the mouse,i sent it off for repair,i got it back and now the space bar doesn't work and the battery goes flat within a few hours of being fully charged. so back it goes again, wonder what won't be working when it comes back this time (second time in 6 months) it just seems to be one thing after another. maybe I've just got a lemon, but I wouldn't rush off to buy one of these again

Cons

Absolutely dream machine. I primarily use the PC to and from work on an electric train. Very fast boot up and connection to internet via vodafone all done in seconds. I can't believe how fast it is.

I find sometimes that the tablet finger presses are off line and select wrong thing but very quick to recover and continue on . The reported issue with unstable set up in tablet form seems to been corrected as I find it be very stable and no movement detected.

I have had the unit for 4 weeks and after a week of getting use to the change from windows 7 to 8 feel very at home now. This is the best PC I have ever had.

I needed something light and reasonably fast so I bought u920t-028 for that purpose. My business trip was 13 hours so I needed something to keep me busy. Best time to try out the product. I have to say I am very impressed. I watched videos/movies and it was clear. I thought to try out Skype and Magicjack and they both worked great. It did take me a while to figure out that the headphone socket on this unit also support the mic. I did not know that. I got the headphone that support mic, hence, 4 metal contacts (on the male prong). Basically, I contacted people through the unit using the airport WiFi. Darn thing works. I worked on a 6MB excel spreadsheet with lots of formula and pivot table and it handles flawlessly. Facebook and Google+ work nicely as well. Have to get use to the large screen which is nice. I also use the map feature but only great if connected to a wifi. What I like the most is if I need to use the keyboard, it is readily available just by sliding out. No attachment needed. What is great also, I can slide up part way to expose the mouse pad to use to get around certain app quickly. The weigh is acceptable; lighter then regular laptop. Finally, reading emails is the ultimate thing and it was great that I was able to read and maneuver around it better then on the Android tablet. Only concern is the display is always exposed. I did find the case for it called Brenthaven from Best Buy and it has a good cushion and fits nicely. I bought it just to try it out as I can return it within 14 days; I kept it.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago prior to travel overseas.
It is a great PC and would recommend it to anyone.
Light, ease to use, powerful, great battery life, solid construction.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.
