Nothing conjures up images of smoking jackets, pipe aroma, and silicone implants quite like Playboy - which, like most other print magazines, is struggling to stay relevant in the Internet era. Well, Hef and Co. have come up with a revenue booster just in time for the stocking-stuffer season: 56 years of Playboy on a 250GB hard drive.

The "collector's edition" costs $US300 and includes every print issue from December 1953 through to December 2009. "That's 56 incredible years of Playboy - over 650 issues, more than 100,000 pages - all at your fingertips," reads the publisher's promo copy.

Yes, there's a "fingertips" joke in there somewhere.

The Playboy drive comes with Bondi Digital Publishing's magazine-browsing software, which is also used by magazine's online archive of back issues.

The pocket-sized USB drive is compatible with both Mac and Windows PCs. Oh, yeah, it's hot-swappable too.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
