Geekiest Houses: Would your spouse leave you if you did this to your residence?

Hobbits, Star Trek, Star Wars, spaceships, Lego--you can't keep obsessed geeks from building their dream homes.

Tree Houses (Costa Rican Rainforest)

Cost: Varies

Have you ever dreamed of living in an Ewok-like tree commune? Or perhaps living in a tree in general (à la Avatar)? Well, you may not be lucky enough to reside on Endor or Pandora, but you can certainly live as if you did (sort of).

Finca Bellavista, an Ewok-esque tree community in the rainforest of Costa Rica, is just one such habitat. The community features treehouses, a bath house, a stone-lined swimming pool, and, of course, high-speed Wi-Fi. It's also conveniently located just 30 minutes from an airport, in case you get fed up with Endor life.

If you'd rather not live in Costa Rica, you have a number of other options for tree-dwelling, such as staying in Free Spirit Tree Spheres on Vancouver Island, building your own, or renting space in the Na'vi Home Tree.

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.

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.
