In Pictures: The debt we all owe the Macintosh

The computers we use today derive their core experience from Apple's Mac, but the Mac also popularized other tech that's now standard today

Bluetooth In 2002, Apple added Bluetooth support to Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, making the Mac the first PC to support the emerging short-range wireless protocol, whose use for many years was largely limited to headsets but has since become a common way to connect peripherals like mice, Braille readers, speakers, and heart rate monitors. Windows XP Service Pack 2 supported Bluetooth only two years later, but Bluetooth is now standard in laptops of all types as well as mobile devices.

Apple continues to be ahead of the game when it comes to Bluetooth, having adopted the low-power version two years ago in iOS devices, enabling an ecosystem of peripherals unmatched on other devices.

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.
