In Pictures: The best Windows 8 business apps for portable productivity

Mixing modern style with business needs

OneNote or Evernote When it comes to digital note-taking and archiving software categories, both of those 800-pound gorillas are in the Windows Store. From a sheer usability standpoint, OneNote MX integrates with Microsoft's modern user interface much more smoothly than Evernote Touch does. Evernote Touch is pretty nerfed compared to the Evernote apps available for other platforms (witness the abundance of poor reviews for Evernote Touch in the Windows Store). However, it has been improving rapidly since its launch.

If you're new to notes and you plan to stick mostly to Windows, I'd recommend skewing toward OneNote. But Evernote Touch works well enough if you're already invested in the Evernote ecosystem. Bonus: The app includes Evernote Business integration.

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.
