Hybrid Windows 8 notebooks take off, finally

Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 8, has yet to inspire a wave of consumer adoption of Windows 8 hardware.

But in 2013, hybrid notebooks will finally take off. Microsoft's Surface Pro and the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 will gain traction with business professionals who don't want to compromise on either the convenience of a tablet or the functionality of a laptop.

As Microsoft and its hardware partners succeed, Apple rumor mills will buzz over the possible development of the MacPad, an Apple hybrid said to run iOS X. Apple won't comment on the rumor, but it will issue a blanket order prohibiting its engineers and prototype developers from visiting bars.

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.
