Wine Planet

www.wineplanet.com.au

For me, nothing can beat the delight of sampling an exquisite wine (although more often than not, the succulent blend escapes me when I have to purchase a bottle of plonk myself). And invariably I return to tried and true favourites. If you are keen to start stocking up your cellar, or would like to have a couple of bottles of white on hand for summer dining, then turn your mouse to the ever expanding Wine Planet.

Anyone who has tired of making snap decisions on the way to dinner will appreciate this site's extensive range of wines (over 7000 local and imported) and all are available for perusal at your convenience - as opposed to rummaging at the local liquor outlet.

Despite its name the site is expanding in early 2000 to include nearly 500 spirits and liqueurs, and gourmet food products, such as fresh roasted coffee and olive oils. Books and magazines covering food, spirits, wine and related topics, as well as a gift centre offering hampers, gift certificates and gift suggestions, are additions to the site.

And there is also plenty of info to hand so the ingredients are put to good use. Maggie Beer (her most recent book is the bestselling Tuscan Cookbook) will be contributing to the Wine Planet Kitchen with a monthly column, recipes, and food commentary. The site is also set to launch WineTV, a weekly streaming video and wine tasting by editor Max Allen. Monthly programs highlight various winemakers and regions.

Users can also personalise the site with the My Planet service, storing their online order history, tracking existing orders, and profiling their own tastes. - Amanda Conroy

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.
