Hot off the heels of the largest iPhone launch comes another Apple event. Cryptic invitations we issued to members of the press in the style of Apple's 30th Mac anniversary logo.

“It’s been way too long,” the invite reads.

No other clues have been given; however, leaks suggest the event will also be dedicated to a new iPad Air.

Internet pundits claim the upcoming iPad will be 7mm thick, inherit the iPhone 6’s A8 and M8 processors, come with TouchID and hardware supportive of Apple Pay.

GSMArena reports the iMac range will feature higher resolutions screens. iMacs are said to come with 6400 x 3600, 5760 x 3240, and 4096 x 2304 resolution displays.

Speculation suggests Apple will also launch a 12in MacBook Air with Retina display, along with the final release of OS X Yosemite.

Apple will host the event next week, on 16 October, at the Town Hall auditorium located on its campus in California.

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.

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.
