In Pictures: The Gearhead Show - 8 teeny tiny computers

Even though we're all walking around with computers in our pockets (a.k.a. smartphones) there's still lots of uses for even more and even smaller computers.

APC 8750: A Bicycle for Your Mind

The Android PC (APC) system was designed, as its name implies, to be a personal computer that runs Android and, as the developers would have, it's so simple and elegant it's like "A Bicycle for Your Mind." The first version, the APC 8750, runs Android 2.3 on a VIA 800MHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 2GB of Flash storage on a 6.89-by-3.15-inch board and includes 10/100 Ethernet and 2D/3D graphics support at up to 720P with 2 channel stereo via the HDMI port. What is really impressive is that the naked board is priced at only $49! The APC 8750 is currently on preorder and is expected to ship in July 2012.

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.
