Hard drives for your pocket

Portable hard drives, in all their pocket-size splendor, now pack in plenty of storage space. Capacities up to 500GB (plus a 1TB network-attached option) and a veritable candy store of colors make choosing a portable hard drive fun.

Clickfree Portable Backup



Storage Appliance is on to something with this product. This drive is for anyone who finds backing up a chore, and wants to just plug in a device and be done with it. Okay, well, maybe Clickfree Portable Backup isn't quite that easy, but it's pretty close. Connect this $180, 320GB USB drive (also available in 120GB and 250GB capacities, in black and red, respectively) to your Windows-based PC, and it will back up your data files, including your music, movies, pictures, and e-mail. The drive supports up to 350 file types, right down to your Web browser bookmarks. You can opt to configure some basics, or just let the drive do everything — your choice. The drive can safeguard up to 20 PCs, and it does its backups incrementally (meaning that it does a full backup the first time, and then on subsequent occasions finds the new files and backs those up). Restoration is simply a matter of pressing the Restore button; the drive's built-in software will then return data to its original location.

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.

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.
