Pros
The sleek, new aluminum lit back plate. Full HD anti-gloss screen. Awesome speakers for a laptop. The sturdy keyboard. Soft touch paint. Customizable lighting.
Cons
The 2 mp front camera could be better. Just being picky, but the optical drive makes a noise when starting up. Battery not easily accessible. Just like the Razer Blade, oily finger marks easily visible.

I have a Razer Blade 2013 and an older m14x r2. I love the new look to the alienware products, however, I'm still a fan of the front grills of the r1 and r2. The Alienware 14 (R3), feels and looks more solid. The performance with an 'average' configuration, only slightly varies in benchmarks. If you upgrade to the better GPU, CPU, Screen and RAM, then it becomes more obvious the R3 can out-perform its predecessors.

Compared to the Razer Blade 2013, it has the same GPU as my Alienware 14. However, the Razer blade doesn't come with an optical drive and overheats a lot faster than the R3. This is because the R3 has a bigger air-intake. Performance wise, the Alienware is a smidge better.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
