In Pictures: 22 ways Apple’s iPad video mixes fantasy and reality

Apple marketers are some of the best in the business, especially when showing off the new iPad Air in a promotional video. But don't fall completely for the marketing hype this holiday season. We break down one of their most compelling videos to separate real-world uses from fantasy.

Life on iPad: Where's the 911 App? Sirens wailing, a fire truck speeds off to an emergency. The fireman sitting shotgun stares into an iPad for route directions. We can only hope that it's not Apple Maps, the much-maligned maps app. We can only pray that there's enough juice in the iPad battery to get them to where they need to go. We can only assume that the city has a big enough data plan.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
