Get creative and get burning

Got a burning desire to back-up data or create your own CDs? Creative Pacific thinks it has just the thing for you - a new $649 internal CD burner from Creative Technology.

The CD-RW Blaster 2224 writes at 2x (that's up to 300Kbps), and reads CD-ROM data at 24x. That holds an advantage over other drives on the market, says Kamil Gurgen, marketing manager for Creative Pacific: "The current generation of CD burners have a very slow read speed making them unproductive for general purpose use, thus requiring the customer to have a second high speed CD-ROM just for data reading."

Multimedia CDs including photos, video and music, can be created with the Blaster 2224 utilising Easy CD Creator software, which is included with the drive. Additionally, DirectCD software, which is also bundled, allows for users to drag-and-drop files onto a CD as easily as with a floppy disk, the company says.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
