This Diamond 1615.R has great performance and great features, such as single format (-) DVD writer, 802.11b/gwireless networking and a 128MB ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics controller.
The powerful graphics chip drives a 15" display, which is capable of a maximum screen resolution of 1400 x 1050 pixels.
ModTech has coupled a 1.6GHz Intel Pentium M processor with 512MB of 333MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM and used a 40GB 5400rpm hard disk.
This model is pretty well manufactured, with solid, smoothly finished case work. Room has been made for two USB 2.0 ports and single FireWire, parallel, S-Video TV-out, microphone and headphone connections. There isn't any kind of integrated card reader, but one Type II PC Card is supported.

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