Billion BiPAC 7300N

Having used Billion products for around six years now, it's easy to sing the praises for this brand, which offers unparalleled value for money in the Australian market. The company's latest model -- the BiPAC 7300N-- is a fully fledged all-in-one uni...


If the promos that we have been seeing at bus shelters for the last few days are any indication, the U2E should take the fancy of any successful career woman. Through a little groundbreaking market research of my own, we've also determined that this ...

The Eee PC exposed

Before the Eee PC 901 hits Aussie shores, we go under the hood of the original Eee PC to find out what makes it tick.

ASUS Eee PC 701 4G (Lush green)

If you have less than $480 to spend on a laptop, the obvious choice for you is the ASUS Eee PC 4G. It's less powerful than its siblings - the Windows and Linux-based 900 models -- but it's still a useful word processing, Internet, and even video play...

Sony Cybershot DSC-H10

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-H10 is almost small enough to fit snugly in your pocket - depending on how tight you wear your pants, it will produce a noticeable bulge. However, the ribbing you might get from your friends for this will be worth it, for within...

HP Compaq 8510p

For professionals who require a large and robust notebook computer, HP's Compaq 8510p is a good candidate. It's solidly constructed, has a 15.4in screen with a large resolution, and it's very comfortable to use.

Budget 802.11n wireless networking

Faster and farther-reaching networking are just a couple of the advantages of an 802.11 draft-n based wireless network, so if you're in the market for a new wireless router, you should ensure that you get one that's capable of running the latest stan...

HP TouchSmart PC IQ500

Interacting with your PC by directly using your hands instead of a peripheral is not something new, but it's not yet mainstream either. In fact, it seems like a bit of a novelty when you first start using the TouchSmart PC. It's not until you launch ...

Minitar 802.11 Broadband Router (MWNAPR-1)

Minitar has long been a favourite brand of ours when recommending wireless routers, mainly because the products the company offers are inexpensive, yet fully featured. You always get great value. Minitar's latest wireless router carries on the tradit...

NEC VERSA P7500-2101DR

It's big, powerful and affordable, but NEC's VERSA P7500 has poor battery life and only basic connections. It can be added to your shortlist if you want a second, relatively powerful computer for the home, but you should overlook it if you want somet...

Mega PC MPC-Kalashnikov (AK47) 4GHz

With this gaming rig, the guys at Mega PC have assembled a killer configuration for a competitive price. And it's not your typical run-of-the-mill PC either; it ships with an Intel Xeon CPU that has been overclocked to 4GHz, and it runs the 64-bit ve...

Aussie designer puts the sex in HyperX

Memory vendor Kingston Technology recently held a contest to see who could come up with the best character design for its HyperX Girl. HyperX is the company's high-end line of memory modules. The competition garnered entries from across the globe. Th...

Toshiba Tecra M9 (PTM90A-0CL03H)

It looks rugged and it feels solid. That's the point of the Toshiba Tecra M9, which is aimed at users who want something big and sturdy but not too heavy to take on the road. Best of all, it features a built-in 3G modem, so all you need to get online...

Belkin N1 Vision Modem-Router (F5D8632au4A)

Being able to glean information about your network connections just by looking at an LCD screen on your modem sure is convenient, and that's what Belkin is hoping will drive users to embrace its latest N1 Vision Modem-Router. While the Belkin N1 Visi...

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.
