In Pictures: Windows 8 Surface RT

Is this tablet the iPad killer?

Keyboard features

Both keyboards attach to the Surface tablet via a powerful magnetic hinge strong enough to hold the weight of the tablet if you grab it by the keyboard. There are six pins centered on the hinge that touch corresponding contacts on the tablet body through which the keyboard and computer talk to each other. The top row includes Search, Share, Devices and Settings keys – the same as the charms buttons that can be swiped in from the right side of the touchscreen when using the device without the keyboard. This is a very convenient feature. The touchpad areas of both keyboards can be tapped and swiped and those motions are interpreted by Windows 8 the same as input from the touchscreen.

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.
