Spirit Ranger 56K modem

Mike Boorne Electronics has released the Spirit Ranger internal 56K modem for $99.

Rather than have two chips -- a coder/decoder chip and a processor chip -- the Spirit Ranger uses just one: the PC-Tel chipset, which interfaces with a PC's processor. According to the vendor, using only one chip allows the low cost of the modem.

The Spirit Ranger uses Rockwell's Kflex technology and is compatible with the new V.90 standard. It also acts as a full duplex speakerphone and has voice and fax capabilities.

A Pentium 120 or equivalent is recommended. Unlimited technical support Australia-wide is available, and a 24-hour dialup service for the latest driver updates.

Spirit Ranger is available from leading computer retailers; for further informaiton call Mike Boorne Electronics on (02) 9906 6666.

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.
