In Pictures: 10 essential Windows 8 travel apps

You're in good hands with Windows 8


A fun and useful app for those inclined toward evenhanded compromise, Meet1/2Way does exactly what its name implies, showing the halfway point between two locations. However, the app also takes the idea a step further by pulling in map information to show you nearby meeting places, such as coffee shops, restaurants, or -- ahem -- hotels. Use this app carefully: I'm on the West Coast, and when I suggested to my East Coast-based family that we split the difference and have Christmas dinner at the Arby's near Lexington, Neb., they were ... unamused.

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.
