In Pictures: Making the most of Windows 8 - the diehard's guide

You may need to break many old habits to get the most out of Windows 8, but it doesn't have to be a cataclysmic event

Mitigating the misery of multiple monitors

If you have the legacy desktop across two screens, icons in the taskbar are duplicated across both screens. This can be confusing: For example, if you go to screen 2 and click on an icon for an app minimized on screen 1, it restores on screen 1, not 2. Charms work on all monitors, but finding them can be tricky. With a single monitor, you can flick the mouse to the right edge of the screen and the charms bar will appear automatically. If the right edge leads into the left edge of another monitor, you'll need to slow down and feel around for the charms bar to appear. On the plus side, wallpapers can now span multiple monitors.

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.
