Since this seems to have become the official Q704 thread, I picked up an i7, 256Gb, LTE model yesterday and thought I would add my 2 cents! First impressions: My first 4 hours were spent with the Q704 downloading apps, setting up Office 365, synching mail, skydrive etc and plugged into the wall. Pretty intensive activities and man did that fan roar! A bit disconcerting... Following on from that though, things settled down. Spent another 4 hours in tablet mode, off power and on the forums here, watching youtube videos, researching and generally consuming content, but very intensively. Not a peep from the fan at all! Phew! System was set to power saver at first, but switched over to balanced to check that out... ok. Then to high performance... and there goes the beast! Being a brand new unit with 1.18 BIOS I can only imagine that they have addressed the fan issue somewhat. Personally, a bit of fan noise at the desk doesn't bother me as long as it's quiet when I'm using it in tablet mode, and so far that's been good. Clearly to achieve the IP rating on this tablet Fujitsu have combined the fan intake and outlet and it's just a bit more noisy doing it that way. Having sat through an engineering demonstration of the Surface Pro fan by Panos Panay, I can vouch for the fact that the Surface dual fan design is far superior from a noise and performance perspective, but it could never be IP rated at all... It also is problematic for rugged and protective case design. So either way there is a compromise. That said, battery life has been fantastic. Four hour undocked browsing, sharing and video session this morning took the tablet battery down to 33%. So 6 hours does not seem a stretch from the tablet, and another 6 hours from the keyboard should be possible. Of course that would vary wildly depending on the task at hand. What I love about the Q704 - Beautiful 12" screen. Really impressive. Since I'm not under Apple hypnosis I don't need to crap on about pixel per inch. It's high res, wide viewing, crystal clear, big and bright, but it is glossy and a bit prone to fingerprints. Touch feels really nice and smooth on this screen. Wacom pen glides across very nicely. Feels great! - Fingerprint reader - essential for a serious tablet IMHO - It's slim and relatively light as a tablet - Great battery life so far - Inbuilt LTE (don't hold your breath, it will never come to Surface) - Water and dust resistant - Keyboard features - USB3, HDMI, Ethernet and VGA all inbuilt. What's not so great: - Battery keyboard is far heavier than I expected. Thinking about the slice keyboard instead. - Fan noise - It's been said. Think I can live with it. - Standard Wacom pen (like all of the current Wacoms) is too small and has only one button. - No HDMI or VGA on the tablet - I hate dongles! Could this be the all in one tablet / laptop for me? Probably. I do have to say that I really like this tablet, and I personally don't evaluate tablets solely on price. But that is just my opinion and it has been well stated here that there is no solution that suits everyone. My alternative to this tablet is the Motion R12. However since I do a lot of training I'll need to get a new Actiontek VGA / HDMI miracast device to replace the need for VGA in most conference rooms that I encounter. Currently my Netgear HDMI only solution works in about 20% of boardrooms since they don't have HDMI. I'll need to do a bit of video editing in Adobe Premiere to see if some of the performance issues that have been mentioned here are resolved to. But, so far, so good.
