Reasons To Keep The Xbox 360 #3: Born in the USA

If you live in North America – or are one of its lickspittle Allies – then the Xbox 360’s ‘homegrown’ status is definitely appealing. The USA has been out of the console race since Atari ran out of steam in the late 1980s, so it’s refreshing to see an all-American David take on the industry’s Nippon Goliaths for a change (er, unless you’re Japanese).

Mind you, when you consider that Microsoft’s manufacturing plants are all off-shore, it becomes something of a hollow victory – a dud Patriot missile, if you will. Nevertheless, if you’re one of those guys who insist on supporting Ford over Toyota, then the Xbox 360 is definitely the console for you. Yeeee-haw!

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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


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.
