Good Gear Guide Evaluation Team Review

The screen itself is nice and large, and removing it from the dock was an easy task. The touch screen responds well and I was impressed by its fluid movement and responsiveness.

With the dock attached, the Q702 is rather thick. The hinged dock makes the unit look untidy and bulky.

Opening the unit was a little difficult. There's no lip to easily open the tablet and dock combination. The unit moved around while I tried to hold the dock on the desk to open. Once opened, the keyboard and mouse pad look dated.

Turning the unit on is a little tricky. The on button is a slider control that doesn't feel smooth. It may require a couple of attempts to power up.

The screen itself is nice and large, and removing it from the dock was an easy task. The touch screen responds well and I was impressed by its fluid movement and responsiveness.

I noticed that while holding it, I had to have the tablet rested either on my lap or on the desk. My left hand quickly heated up due to the fact the cooling fan is located where my hand had to be to hold the unit at a comfortable position.

After about 15 minutes, I could no longer hold the Q702 like a tablet and had to rest the unit down on a desk.

Using the camera app while in tablet mode, I took a couple photos. This proved to be tricky due to the size of the unit. I was unable to keep the tablet steady, resulting in blurry pictures.

Typing using the on-screen keyboard was simple and responsive, albeit the unit had to be placed back down on the desk as it wasn't so easy while holding it. Dropping the tablet back onto the dock was an easy step.

Battery performance was impressive, both with the tablet removed or docked. I found myself interacting with the screen rather than the mouse pad. This allowed me to access things faster.

Games performed well. Sound was OK, but wouldn't blow your socks off.

Overall, the Q702 is a solid workhorse while docked. Everything does what it's supposed to do easily. This unit would be best suited to a student computer or a work station.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
