In Pictures: The best Windows 8 business apps for portable productivity

Mixing modern style with business needs

Niche apps Somewhat surprisingly, the Windows Store already offers a bevy of niche apps to fill your business's needs. And I'm not just talking about enterprise-class apps like Rackspace Cloud, Citrix Receiver, or Microsoft's own Lync, Yammer, and Dynamics Business Analyzer. Beneath the big names are a host of apps that are arguably more useful to small businesses.

From HoursTracker to Invoice360 to Mileage And Receipt System to Google Analytics Live, the Windows Store has many basic business functions covered, albeit often in a highly simplified fashion. Dive into the store's business and productivity sections, and you might just be surprised at what else you'll find.

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.
