First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Top rated business laptops: August 2011

Our top rated this month is headed by the Toshiba Tecra R850, which has a wonderful combination of design, performance, battery life and price. It's one of the best 15.6in units we've seen in a while. Lenovo's reliable Thinkpad T420 comes in after it with a 4-star review rating and it's followed by solid offerings from Dell and HP.
We've included the ThinkPad edge in this round-up, too, as it's a terrific little unit for what you pay and we think small business users will love it. For professionals who want lots of power, Lenovo's ThinkPad W520 gets a look in at position eight. Users after a lighter model that still has great features must check out Toshiba's Portege R830 instead.
About our ratings: A star rating is awarded to a product in quarter increments from one star to five stars. The higher the star rating, the better the notebook. Notebooks are evaluated on performance, features, build quality, ease of use, battery life and value for money.
3 / 10
The ThinkPad W520 isn't a typical laptop. It should only be considered if you're a professional in need of a strongly-built and well-performing laptop that can help you get your work done efficiently. It's not perfect, but it has stacks of features and supplies good overall user comfort.
