A gift guide to Valentine's Day

If you are looking at sending something traditional, such as a bunch of red roses, a good place to start is Roses Only at rosesonly.com.au They are allowing customers to make online purchases today and have them delivered before the end of the day.

As you may have already noticed, most sites will not deliver goods with 0 days' notice. Perhaps an e-voucher is the way to go. It is immediate and no delivery of a good is required. It may not be the most romantic thing to do, but if you can talk you will probably save yourself. Try looking at evoucher.com.au for perhaps a balloon flight from Global Ballooning or giftvouchers.com for maybe a wallet from leathergoods retailer Oroton.

Of course, this being the last minute and all, you may want to go to lastminute.com.au. Perhaps organising something for the weekend may be a lot simpler, as all deliveries of Valentines consumables will not be received by your lover today; unfortunately, most courier companies need advance notice. This looking forward to the weekend may also cover you for your lack of foresight earlier in the week.

If your lover does not fuss about the immediate and you are one that is more inclined to buy online than in the flesh, you may find these local sites helpful in the future. Wishlist.com.au, dstore.com.au, perfectgifts.com.au all offer general gift ideas. For that something more sensuous, efragrance.com.au may be the way to go.

Finally, if you have decided against spending lots of money then your cheapest bet is an e-greeting. You will find lots to choose from www.freewebcards.com and www.123greetings.com. For a musical greeting try www.clubgreetings.com and for a video greet go to www.hotgreetings.com.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
