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

I've been using Dantz's Retrospect backup software for years, and while I've always prized the app's wonderfully powerful backup capabilities, the program's interface has long been a stumbling block. I had high hopes when Dantz said Retrospect Professional 7 would be easier to use.
Regrettably, the sweeping overhaul that I'd envisioned didn't materialize in the shipping version of the program. Instead, I found a new set of wizards that step users through basic chores such as backing up, restoring data, and duplicating a partition. Though the wizards are nice, they don't make up for the application's continued use of arcane terminology such as "sets" and "volumes," or its odd workflow decisions such as splitting file selection into three nonconsecutive steps.

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