Nike PSA[Play 120

A small remote control sports a circular LCD that shows the current track title, its number, and the length of the song. I found the remote's tiny player controls difficult to depress, but navigating the rubberised controls on the player itself is a no-brainer, even when you aren't looking at the buttons.

The player connects to a PC via USB, runs for about 11 hours on one AA battery, and comes with a neatly collapsible headset and with software for creating playlists and transferring tracks. You can also use the software to burn CDs and play back songs on your PC.

The PSA]Play 120 has 64MB of internal memory, which S3 claims can hold up to two hours of .mp3 and .wma files. I managed to fit only 60 minutes' worth at varying levels of compression, however. You can expand the player's storage by adding a multimedia card.

Sound quality was very good, and the unit withstood some light mountain biking and jogging without a problem, while keeping me happy with a succession of about 15 high-quality tracks.

A smaller-capacity version will soon be available.

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.
