Sony KDL-46HX820

Sony’s high-end HX820 BRAVIA LCD TV uses a great LCD panel and can look excellent after adjusting the picture to suit the room it’s in. Some of its Web features fall flat, like the Web browser -- which isn’t as easy to use as Samsung’s -- but the built-in video-on-demand services are diverse and offer plenty of content.

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.
