SLIDESHOW: The cutest robots in the world

Sure, someday these machines will band together and take over--but they're so darned cute!

Toshiba Wheelie Robot

Not only is this robot cute (it looks sort of like Rosie from The Jetsons), but it's totally practical, too--it has a flat head on which it can carry things. You know, things like food, drinks, and a remote control. Sure, it can't actually pick up those objects (someone will have to place them on its head), but it's one step closer to a world where you never have to get up from your couch.

The Toshiba Wheelie robot sports two wheels, retractable runners on the front and back (to keep it from toppling over and spilling your dinner all over the carpet), stereo cameras, and a laser range finder to prevent it from running into furniture or walls. Its usefulness is limited--all it can really do is carry things from one room to another--but it's still adorable, and I would love to have one. The Wheelie is currently in experimental mode, and is not for sale.

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.
