In Pictures: 10 essential Windows 8 travel apps

You're in good hands with Windows 8

4th at Square

Despite its slightly more whimsical name, 4th at Square is simply a Foursquare client for the Windows 8 modern UI. At the forefront of the game-ification of real life, Foursquare is all about earning virtual points for checking in to as many different locations as possible. More important, however, it lists locations and basic descriptions for many local restaurants and attractions around the globe -- a useful tool on a Windows 8 platform that lacks a Yelp app.

Note that the full 4th at Square app costs $2, though a free, ad-supported 4th at Square Lite app is available.

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.
