TDK ST-PR300

As one of the cheapest pairs of full-size headphones available, TDK's ST-PR300 has surprisingly competent sound reproduction at moderate volumes. For a street price of a little more than $20, these headphones offer decent treble clarity and reasonable mid-range response. It's not all good news, though -- build quality is poor and the headphones leak sound badly.

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.
