First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling. Ports and buttons are conveniently located and unobtrusive. The responsive start up was impressive. Windows 8 account set-up was quick and connectivity with the wireless network was established easily.

A screen resolution of 1366x768 pixels was refreshingly clear with high-resolution photos rendering instantly. We also took a look at some 1080p, Full HD videos, which rendered smoothly without glitches or shuddering.

Using the touch screen was a breeze -- the response was fast, precise, and smooth to touch. When the tablet was docked in the keyboard, the unit tended to be a little top heavy, but since the screen only required a soft touch this was not a major issue.

Next up, we tried handwriting recognition. After a quick training session, the responsiveness of the screen and stylus was excellent, resulting in accurate recognition of both print and script handwriting very quickly. The stylus and tablet were comfortable to use even for extended periods of time.

The 0.72-megapixel webcam was grainy, but it functioned well. Given the good screen resolution, the 5-megapixel rear-facing camera was disappointing. It was difficult taking photos as the tablet was hard to hold steady, resulting in blurred and grainy photos.

On the road, the Q702 was easily connected via mobile hotspot. Battery performance was better than expected with the unit only needing recharging once over four days of typical daily usage.

In short, the Q702 proved capable of handling all mobile and office computing tasks with ease, and the benefit of signature capture makes it ideal for applications requiring document and form signing.

Is it value for money? Not really. It’s a good mobile workhorse, but its pricing needs to be more competitive.

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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
