In Pictures: Windows 8's 8 top apps (so far)

The launch of the Windows 8 beta also means the launch of the Windows 8 App Store beta. Here are our top early picks from Microsoft's store

Soluto

This app turns you into remote tech support for your family's and friends' PCs (so you may want to make sure you're up for playing that role before installing Soluto). You can install apps, stay up to date with silent app updates, get important hardware info, defrag, and clear disk space no matter where you are -- even if the PC you’re helping with is turned off or in another country. And the people you're assisting don't even need to do anything (which, again, you should make sure you're OK with before signing up for that tour of duty). Soluto can be used for free with as many as five PCs.

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.
