Jargon Busters: Vacuum Cleaners

Airflow: A vacuum's performance is measured in litres per second of airflow. The greater the airflow, the more powerful the vacuum will be.

Barrel: This is a specific type of vacuum cleaner. It refers to squat, compact models that suck up dirt through a hose.

Dust collector: This is the bag inside a vacuum cleaner that collects excess dirt and dust. They can be either disposable or reusable, depending on the vacuum model.

Handheld: This is a specific type of vacuum cleaner. It refers to miniature, battery operated models that can be used with one hand.

HEPA: HEPA vacuums have more powerful motors and sophisticated filters which allow them to eradicate the air particles which cause allergies.

Power head: This is a motorised attachment for barrel vacuums that helps to suck up dirt and dust particles.

Stand-up: This is a specific type of vacuum cleaner. It refers to traditional upright models that suck dust into a bag attached to the vacuum's handle.

Turbo head: This is a brush attachment powered by a vacuum's airflow. Like a power head, it helps to suck up dirt and dust particles.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
