In Pictures: 7 reasons Google's Nexus 7 beats the iPad

The Google tablet's advantages in flexibility, usability, and form factor might make you ditch your iPad

Google integration

A huge benefit of the Nexus 7 is the Google integration. It has the Chrome browser, and with it comes a connection back to my desktop, so logins and tabs are shared, as well as smoothly integrated single sign-on to apps requesting Google credentials. Add to that excellent integration with calendars, contacts, emails, photographs, and every other part of my life Google mediates -- all without the subscription needed for iCloud on the iPad -- and life is extremely simple. One innovation I like in Jelly Bean is the Google Now app, which uses information about my location and searches to suggest things I'll find useful to know, like journey times and flight details.

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.
