In Pictures: Windows 8 app shootout - ModernMix v RetroUI Pro

Which tool works best to re-size Windows applications that run full-screen?

Pinning apps to the desktop taskbar However, in ModernMix, after you’ve launched an app from the Start Screen, its icon appears on the desktop’s taskbar. You can then pin it like an ordinary Windows desktop application (by right-clicking its icon) so that you can conveniently launch it again from the taskbar whenever you want. Also, you can set the app’s icon onto the desktop itself by right-clicking on its re-sizeable window’s title bar. RetroUI Pro doesn’t display a Windows app that’s running in a re-sizeable window as an icon on the taskbar, so it lacks the function to let you pin it to the taskbar. Nor can you set its icon onto the desktop.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.

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.
