    I am using my Q2 to do inventory at work.
    Using Libre Office and Notepad on Win 10

    Had a problem with Win 10 and a 32gb usb stick formatted to FAT32. Win 10 Explorer froze. I copied the data off and reformatted to NTFS and it seems ok now.

    Libre Office to input data to the spreadsheet. Spreadsheet has previous 2 years sales data.
    Notepad for the list of parts NOT in the inventory spreadsheet. I will need to add them in later.

    I chose the Q2 for it's light weight and touchscreen. Turns out he touchscreen is not a huge help for numerical data. I am using a keyboard dock.

    I found myself wanting a chest strap for holding the laptop in a "desklike" orientation.
    I always thought they were goofy, but now I see the value in them.

    Since I can't use the touchscreen anyway, maybe I will use the Q1 tomorrow.
    It has MX 18 on it.
    I could try a CF 19 with a should strap around my neck, but the light weight Q1 or Q2 sounds better.

    I mean I take USED to take a 52GUN to work for a few months. But still I don’t recommend the strap for the 19. It sounds odd. Though this is coming from the guy that daily drives a 93 Ram 250 so what can I say?

    Used some crating lumber.

    MX18 and Libre Office working great on the Q1.
    One slight issue was that the MX text editor had word wrap on by default. No line breaks.

    The top separates from the keyboard to make a standalone tablet unit.
