The delightful dozen: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

News Bento Don't let the death of Google Reader get you down. News Bento is a stellar visual newsreader done up in the usual Flipboard style, but this Windows 8 exclusive rocks a newspaper-inspired look that fits right in with the overall feel of Microsoft's operating system.

News Bento's visual format fits touchscreen devices like a glove. If you're looking for a Metro-fied way to keep track of the news pouring out of your favorite websites (like PCWorld!), News Bento is the app to get. Ignore the sparse selection of in-app news sources; News Bento lets you manually add the RSS feed of any website you want.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
