New Potato Technologies TuneLink Home

The Apple TV is great for streaming audio and video, but only from Apple devices. DLNA-compatible Android streaming is likewise proprietary. New Potato Technologies' TuneLink Home takes Bluetooth audio streams from both iOS and Android, even auto-connecting multiple devices. But avoid the car version -- it's unreliable.

Plus, the integrated IR blaster lets its companion remote-control app for iOS manage other entertainment devices, such as DVD players -- if you can get get a good line of sight to your devices and still have the included patch or optical cable reach your stereo.

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.
