Tripod

Alexa Global Traffic Rank: 766

The shuttering of GeoCities closed an era of easy website-making and hosting services that was associated with the internet of the 1990s -- mostly, personal sites that users littered with tacky animated GIFs and pointless "Under Construction" banners. But a similar service originally from that period exists. Launched in September 1994, Tripod was bought in February 1998 by Lycos (which itself, a web portal, is a surviving relic from those early, awkward web years), and still offers today a free plan for building and hosting your website.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
