The A8V-E Deluxe uses VIA's K8T890 chipset, which turned out to be an adequate performer, producing WorldBench 5 and gaming scores right in line with the competition during our tests. The A8V-E Deluxe fell a bit short of its nForce4 counterparts in terms of SATA and RAID support, offering only two SATA ports and RAID 0 and RAID 1. What the board lacks in drive support, however, it makes up for in networking, with an integrated 802.11g wireless adapter in addition to its gigabit Ethernet port. It even comes with a table-top external antenna.

We had no other complaints about the board--especially since it's nearly as fast as (and considerably cheaper than) its NForce4 rivals, and its layout is one of our favorites among the Athlon 64 products we have looked at. The PCIe x16 slot is mounted in the second slot position, to eliminate interference with the DIMM slots and to make room for a PCIe x1 slot on the right.

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.
