Maximize your laptop with cool accessories

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

Tap Into the Sun


When all of the oil, gas, and coal finally run out, at least we'll still have the sun to power our gear. You can get started with solar-charging hardware today: Gadgets such as the Solio can juice your iPod. And other products are trickling onto the market that make charging larger devices (like laptops) a possibility. One example is Voltaic's Generator laptop bag. Covering its side is a solar panel that generates, at maximum production, about 17 watts — enough to charge the bag's built-in battery, which in turn charges your laptop battery. Voltaic hopes to have it ready later this year, for $US599.

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.
