In Pictures: 10 essential Windows 8 travel apps

You're in good hands with Windows 8

XE Currency

Handy for the non-mathematically inclined, XE Currency will show you up-to-the-minute exchange rates for just about any currency you can think of. Select the currencies you're dealing with, punch in the monetary amount, and then bask in the automatic-conversion goodness -- it's as simple as that. XE Currency's live tile toggles between the various currencies you've selected in-app, showing their relative worth to your baseline currency. Now you can watch the value of the dollar plummet or see just how badly airport currency changers are ripping you off from the stylish comfort of your Windows 8 Start screen.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
