In Pictures: 7 things we love/hate about Microsoft Office 2013 for Windows RT

Here’s how Office 2013 for Windows RT stacks up against the traditional Microsoft Office for x86/x64-based systems that we know and love.

Office apps have been rewritten and optimized

The official name of Office 2013 RT is Office Home & Student 2013 RT. It includes versions of Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint and Word, which were rewritten to run on ARM processors. The code is optimized for use on tablets and other mobile devices by reducing their power consumption, improving their memory caching, and keeping their installation size streamlined to fit on a 16G or 32GB SSD.

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.
