In Pictures: 5 things we love/hate about Windows 8

New and improved CHKDSK

This one is a little surprising: Microsoft updated the hard disk checking and fixing tool CHKDSK, which has been around since the early days of MS-DOS. The new CHKDSK will debut in Windows 8, and use a new NTFS health model. Instead of tying up your computer when it's run, the new CHKDSK in Windows 8 will split the check/fix process into a series of stages: Detect Corruption, Online Self-Healing, Online Verification, Online Identification & Logging, and Precise & Rapid Correction.

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.
