In Pictures: Windows 8 app shootout - ModernMix v RetroUI Pro

Which tool works best to re-size Windows applications that run full-screen?

Scrolling within re-sizeable windows Both ModernMix and RetroUI Pro can show scrollbars on the re-sizeable window of an app whenever there’s more of an app’s layout to see. You can also use the arrow keys, and Page-Up and Page-Down keys on your computer’s keyboard, as well as the scroll wheel of a mouse, to see any other areas of an app that are out of frame. Some apps I tested would not display scrollbars, whether I used either program. For example, the Windows 8/8.1 default Weather app wouldn’t show a vertical scrollbar when it was obvious there was more information to be viewed. Any scrollbars that appear are apparently a UI element originally written into the app itself -- they are not elements overlaid by ModernMix nor RetroUI Pro.

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.
