Maximize your laptop with cool accessories

These accessories and add-ons will have your old laptop doing brand-new tricks in no time.

Find Your Way Back Home

Don’t have an iPhone 3G or a snazzy navigation device mounted on your dash? You can still obtain GPS on the go by turning your laptop into a navigation tool. If your system has Bluetooth, check out the CoPilot Live 11 for Laptops ($US249) from ALK Technologies. The CoPilot Live needs no hardware installation; instead, a small GPS receiver sits on your dashboard and relays GPS info via Bluetooth to your notebook. The package has maps for all of North America — 7 million miles of road and 6 million points of interest — ready to load onto your laptop. As you drive, your vehicle's GPS position is plotted continuously on the maps. Oh, you don't have Bluetooth? A USB option is available for the same price.

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.
