Toshiba wires the Libretto for broadband

Toshiba Corp. has upgraded its Libretto mini-notebook computer by building in an Ethernet local area network adapter to make it easier to connect to broadband networks.

The network adapter is compatible with both 10Base-T Ethernet and 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet and was added to the machine because of the increasing use of broadband services in Japanese homes. Many of these services require an Ethernet connection between the computer and modem.

The new machine, which went on sale in Japan over the weekend, uses a Transmeta Corp. Crusoe TM5600 600MHz processor -- first introduced to the Libretto range in May. Other features are also similar to the model introduced in May, including the 10-inch Polysilicon TFT (thin film transistor) SXGA display with a resolution of 1,280 by 600 pixels; 128M bytes of memory; and a 10G-byte hard disk drive. [See "Toshiba to introduce Crusoe-based Libretto," May 7.]The notebook is available in two versions. The L2/060 TNML comes with Windows ME installed and sells for around 139,800 yen (US$1,145), while the L2/060 TN2L runs Windows 2000 Professional and sells for 149,800 yen.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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

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