Sony VAIO VGN-Z16GN/B

Although we’ve often criticised Sony for releasing products that have good looks but not enough power, it seems like the company has finally managed to pull off a balanced unit -- the Sony VAIO VGN-Z16GN/B is moderately priced, fairly powerful and ex...

EVGA GeForce 9800 GT (512MB DDR3 PCI-E)

It feels like it was only yesterday that we were burying the GeForce 8000 series to usher in the 9000s, but technology is a fickle thing and soon the 9000s will be forgotten under a heap of GT200s.

Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGDA-00K00R)

Toshiba’s Satellite Pro A300 is a rather drab-looking workhorse that will satisfy business users looking for a device that’s better than an entry-level laptop but cheaper than a mid-level unit.

Brand new photos of Planet Mercury

These spectacular images of Mercury were beamed back to Earth on 7 October by the spacecraft Messenger and provide the highest level of photographic detail we’ve ever seen.

ASUS M50VM-AS001G

Although we were somewhat disappointed in ASUS for its M51VA-AS045G, it has also brought out the M50VM-AS001G which is identical but for two points of difference -- it has a better graphics card and finally provides Gigabit Ethernet.

BenQ Joybook S42-PE01

BenQ notebooks have usually been quite attractive to look at. However, as other notebook vendors step up their game in the design stakes, BenQ has had to notch up its performance to stay competitive.

Fujitsu LifeBook U2010

When many people think of 'netbooks' they often picture devices like the ASUS EeePC. Cheap and simple to use, ultraportable notebooks have proven to be a hit thanks to their convenient size, despite their frequent lack of high-end features.

Intel X25-M

Solid-state drives have long been the ‘novelty’ cousin of conventional hard disks thanks to exorbitant prices and inadequate capacities. While Intel’s new X25-M is certainly a killer in terms of performance, the inherent economic issues remain and wi...

Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D)

As the desktop replacement notebook market fills up, the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D) finds itself either matched or outpaced in almost every respect: from aesthetics and performance to multimedia features and value. In fact, the Pro P3...

ASUS M51VA-AS045G

If you’re not looking for a Blu-ray capable unit and you don’t mind a screen that is only average, the ASUS M51VA-AS045G is a notebook that has "future-proofing" written all over it, thanks to an excellent variety of expansion options and strong hard...

Epson P-6000

For professional photographers covering media or sporting events, devices like the Epson P-6000 offer a quick and easy way to transfer images from memory cards to a portable hard drive without the hassle of booting up a laptop. For the casual user, h...

HP Pavilion Elite M9380a_01

Although it features an excellent array of connections that make it suitable as a media centre PC, the performance of the HP Pavilion Elite M9380a_01 didn't live up to our expectations, especially for a unit that costs $2000.

Fujitsu LifeBook S6520

Fujitsu’s latest refresh of its S-series is the LifeBook S6520. Although the chassis design has remained largely identical for the last three generations, the S6520's processor is fast and punchy and the screen is big and bright.

Lite-On IHAS 220-08

Lite-On’s latest IHAS220-08 provides Serial ATA data and power connections and lets you burn DVDs at a competitive rate of up to 20x and CDs at a rate of up to 48x.

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.

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.
