FireWire 120GB external hard drive available

The storage device specialists at Western Digital have a new 120GB FireWire external hard drive available.

Designed with the company's 7200RPM WD Caviar hard drive and a second-generation 1394 to IDE bridge card, it utilises the industry-leading Oxford 911 chipset. In other words, for those who don't care about techno-speak, it's fast.

The FireWire drives can be stacked together and daisy-chained. Western Digital's external hard drives are compatible with any computer with a built-in FireWire port, using Mac OS 8.6 or higher. For computers without FireWire ports, Western Digital offers a PCI Adapter for desktops and a CardBus PC Card for notebooks, which will add the FireWire interface to these legacy systems.

All Western Digital FireWire products carry a one-year warranty. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the 120GB FireWire Drive is $US349.

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.
