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

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

Which one is best? The clear winner is ModernMix. RetroUI Pro misses out on two important things: the ability to pin an app to the desktop’s taskbar, and familiar function buttons on the title bar of the re-sizeable window. ModernMix is the only choice if you’re using Windows 8.1, but even if you’re not (and why wouldn’t you be since this upgrade from Windows 8 is free?), it does a nearly flawless job of letting you interact with your Windows apps as if they were regular desktop applications.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
