Pros
The ability to have 2 machines together covering off both work time and playtime
Cons

I bought this machine after having a Asus Transformer Prime and its exceeded my expectations in all ways.

Windows and Android work seamlessly together and file sharing is easy.

The performance of the android device and the windows machine are brilliant. I've not even had to put it into performance mode yet on either. I do a lot of movie editing and its had no issues running the software.

All in all this is a spot on piece of kit. It allows me to have the best of both worlds in one device.

Pros
Switch from Windows 8 to Android 4.2 and fro is almost instantly
Cons
A little to big to be used as a stand alone tablet

Have tried this product for a moment. I like the capability of having 2 different OS on a single device that can be activated parallel. We also can shutdown one of the OS and continue using the other OS if we don't need them. When working, both of the OS can see each other's data that stored locally inside them.

As a Windows 8 notebook, it can also work as an Android notebook. The performance is quite good with Haswell i5 and 4GB of RAM. As a tablet, it can only work as Android device, athough the performance is OK, I feel that 11,6" screen is too big for a tablet. Haven't tried as a desktop PC though. Overall, the idea of combining three devices in one is very good. Love it.

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.
