In Pictures: Modern PCs that run the Windows you really want

Here are 12 good laptops and desktops that will run Windows 7 for a very long time

5. Panasonic Toughbook F9 The Toughbook has long occupied a beloved niche among PC buyers thanks to its extreme durability and survivability from drops, spills, and other physical harm. Even with its built-in handle, the F9 weighs just 3.6 pounds, yet sports a 14.1-inch screen.

The F9 does compromise on performance, however, with a 2.4GHz Core i5 processor, 2GB of RAM (upgradable to 6GB), and a 320GB hard drive, though it also includes a rewritable DVD drive. Ports are likewise basic: one VGA, three USB 2, and one Ethernet -- plus a rarity today: a modem port.

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.

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.
