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

The ThinkPad Edge E420 provides a more modern take on Lenovo's legendary ThinkPad styling. It offers more curves and colour details, but it still retains dual pointing devices and a decent configuration that can be used for everyday office productivity tasks.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.
