The S-HV600B Sound Wing soundbar.

Pioneer has shown off a soundbar and satellite speakers with flat-panel speaker driver technology, allowing speaker widths of under an inch. The new Pioneer Sound Wing speakers are designed to blend seamlessly underneath or beside a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, and come bundled with Pioneer's new slim-line AV receiver.

The speakers use what Pioneer calls HVT technology — "horizontal-vertical transforming" — which moves the speaker's magnets alongside the speaker driver, cutting down on the overall space required. The S-HV600B Sound Wing soundbar is only 25.5mm thick, and the satellite-style omnidirectional S-HV500LR speakers are 37mm thick.

The speakers will not be sold separately — they must be bought in a bundle with Pioneer's slim new VSX-S300 receiver. The VSX-S300 is the only Pioneer amplifier that includes an equaliser setting tailored to the new Sound Wing speakers. The price for each bundle is yet to be confirmed, but the sets will be available from September.

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.
