Fujitsu Q702 Hybrid (3)

The Fujitsu Q702 is the most complex and multi-faceted PC we’ve ever tested so grab a coffee and enjoy the review.

I’ve just got back from CeBIT but there are a number of experiences I still have to tell you about. Most are already in my YouTube channel so check that out. Here’s one that I think many of you will be looking at if you’re considering mobility and flexibility. The hybrid laptop, dockable Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is effectively an Ultrabook crammed into a tablet and a docking station with keyboard and USB ports.

North Cape is the Haswell hybrid Ultrabook reference design that was brought out as the demo at CES in Jan. This evening in Hannover, Intel have allowed us to have a few minutes hands-on with it at CeBIT. Naturally this is a reference design and not a final product but from the few minutes we had we can draw at least a few conclusions. I also had a chance to speak to a senior marketing representative from Intel about Connected Standby.

I’ve had a very productive week at Mobile World Congress thanks to the Fujitsu Q702. It was worry-free, adaptor-free and charger free because for the first time, I managed to get through a long day’s work without a charger. I also learnt about things I don’t need at a conference. VPro was one (no surprises there for this independent worker) and the detachable tablet was another.

The Fujitsu Q702 has been kindly supplied by Notebooksbilliger.

Fancy 70WH of battery in your Ultrabook? For those that don’t know how significant this is, it’s the best battery capacity we’ve seen so far in the 11.6” segment and it beats nearly all other Ultrabooks. Only the Fujisu U772 has more, but not by much. The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 doesn’t stop there. I’ve unboxed and I’m impressed at the specs, ports and capability. There’s another first here too. Matt capacative touchscreen with digitizer!

Dell Working on the XPS 12, a Duo-like Convertible Touchscreen Ultrabook?

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,


Dell may be looking to reboot it’s screen-flipping netbook in Ultrabook form. The Inspiron Duo was a netbook offering from Dell which featured interesting convertible mechanics, wherein the screen flips around right inside of the bezel, allowing the device to function as a standard clamshell or tablet device. The netbook version of this didn’t sell very well, but the convertible concept might not have died with it. With Windows 8’s vastly improved touch functionality just around the corner, we’d love to see the XPS 12 from Dell.

Hybrid Ultrabook Design with Slider Keyboard. Update: It’s ‘Letexo’

Hybrid Ultrabook

As I filter through some of the information coming out of IDF in Beijing, this image strikes me as being significant. It’s a slider tablet design with a Windows 8 button. The design smacks of Dell but the logo on the images [Lxo, Lyo or Lko perhaps?] tells us that this is probably just a CAD concept. However, it looks fantastic and is something that could hit the Ultrabook sector soon.
