Hewlett-Packard Compaq Presario V3500 (V3641AU)

Bright blue lights, a glossy screen, plenty of ports, a latch-less lid and scratch-resistant exterior allow the HP Compaq V3500 to make a positive first impression. The next impression will depend on how patient you are because the initial setup proc...

Acer X1160

Priced at $899, the Acer X1160 is a decent deal if you're looking for a quick-and-dirty big-screen solution. It's a small, DLP-based projector, which doesn't have an extensive feature set with not so great image quality; however, it's an affordable u...

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5

Based on AMD's new 790FX chipset, this Gigabyte platform is ripe for use with any of AMD's AM2 and AM2+ based CPUs, including Phenom. The 790FX is a high-end chip, yet this board isn't Gigabyte's top-of-the-range product. That honour goes to the GA-M...

ASUS Xonar U1

One rarely needs to buy a dedicated sound card these days. The integrated sound chips in most notebooks and PCs are more than adequate for listening to music and watching movies. However, if the sound from an older computer is below average, or you w...

Kaiser Baas 15in Photo Frame

AMD DTX Small form factor PC

The form factor of a PC is rarely something that many users need to think about, until they try to purchase a PC that's smaller than a mid-tower. That's when tough decisions need to be made. Do you go for a pre-built system from Shuttle or Dell, whic...

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
