Let the Christmas holiday nightmares begin

Spring has barely made its way into the chilly Australian air -- so it's obviously time to start thinking about the Christmas holiday! It's never too early to start planning for gift-giving, surreptitious gift-exchanging, seeing the relatives you usually try to keep at arm's length, and Christmas carols emanating from places you didn't even know you could put speakers in.

Case in point: Brando's USB Music Santa Claus, an 11''-tall, microphone-wielding, hip-shaking Kris Kringle that happily busts out "Jingle Bells" when he's plugged into your USB port. The jury's out on Brando's claim that it's the "perfect gift for the holidays," but if you're planning on showing this off at work I'd suggest you don't leave Santa repeating the song while you're out for lunch; you may find him in an, um, uncomfortable position when you get back.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
