In Pictures: Windows 8 Release Preview - a visual tour

Here are some of the more interesting improvements - and quirks - of Windows 8 RP, as Microsoft sprints to the finish line

Do Not Track turned on by default

In one of the gutsiest moves Microsoft has ever made with Internet Explorer, IE 10 ships with the Do Not Track header turned on by default. Although the header relies on website cooperation to put a dent in different kinds of tracking -- and the details of DNT are by no means set in concrete -- there’s no question that Microsoft’s come out on the side of the consumer. Of course, after Microsoft made its DNT announcement, the draft proposal of the standard was updated to require users to opt-in to the policy in order for it to take effect, thus rendering IE 10 non-compliant. No doubt DNT remains a moving target that we'll be hearing about more in the years to come.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
