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

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

Viewing modes In ModernMix, hovering the cursor over the upper-right corner of an app running inside a re-sizeable window that’s been scaled down will summon two icons. Clicking the top one will make the app fill the entire screen. The bottom will summon the Windows 8/8.1 Charms Bar. In the default settings of ModernMix, pressing the F10 key will switch the viewing mode of an app between full-screen and within a re-sizeable window on the desktop. In RetroUI Pro, pressing the F12 key will cycle through viewing modes for an active Windows app: full-screen, within a re-sizeable window, and full-screen with the desktop’s taskbar appearing along the bottom.

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.
