Pioneer 36x CD-ROM drive

Pioneer has released its 36x CD-ROM drive with a slot-in disc mechanism, which allows horizontal or vertical installation.

Interfacing as ATAPI or SCSI, Pioneer claims the drive has a sustained data transfer rate of up to 5400KB/sec, an average random seek time of 60ms, and an average access time of 70ms. A new servo mechanism with non-linear damper and low friction structure lets discs spin at higher rotation speeds without generating the vibration or buzzing sounds of other drives, according to Pioneer.

The DR-A14S/Ui6S 36x drive from Pioneer has a two-year warranty. For more information call 1800 060 852 or visit www.pioneerelectronics.com

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.
