At 160GB, this 3.5in internal Serial ATA hard drive doesn't hold much in terms of desktop drives, but it's aiming to be one of the quietest and coolest drives on the market.
The Samsung i320N offers sleek and sophisticated looks in a very thin package, and comes with a solid set of features. Unfortunately, a poorly designed keypad, a lack of 3G connectivity and below average battery life diminish what could have been an ...
Pitched as a 'Mobile Media Companion', the iPAQ rx4240 is HP's latest attempt at breathing new life into the increasingly flagging PDA market. With portable media player sales booming, it makes sense for HP to push the rx4240's multimedia capabilitie...
The Powermate X8500 is a media centre PC that features plenty of useful connectivity options and storage space. Indeed, NEC has equipped this bad boy with video-in ports, so that you can easily plug in an old VCR, or even a gaming console. An 802.11g...
Unlike previous TravelMate models we've seen from Acer, the TravelMate 6465WLMi comes in a black casing that has a wax finish, otherwise it has most of the features we're used to seeing from the TravelMate range. Some of those features include a curv...
The Sapphire Radeon X1650 Pro is an affordable low-end graphics card suited to a number of roles. Although it's not top of the line, it's a cheap interim upgrade for anyone who wants to buy another, more powerful card in the future, such as a DirectX...
The Mitac MIC2D63120DLH isn't a system you're likely to ask for by name (the model name is definitely a mouthful), but it's a good all-purpose system that has plenty of CPU power for the home or the office user.
Toshiba's HD-E1 is the first HD-DVD player we've had through the office. While we looked at the Qosmio G30 notebook with a built in HD-DVD drive, the HD-E1 is a different animal all together, as it is a standalone home entertainment device designed t...
With the launch of the Playstation 3 just around the corner, the format war between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD is about to jump up a notch. The integrated Blu-Ray player in the Playstation 3 is expected to be a major driving force for the Blu-Ray camp, creat...
Sitting at the lower end of the current Sharp LCD television line up is the LC37AW5X, a unit designed for those on a limited budget who still want the advantages of a high definition television. While the image quality is still quite good, the connec...
Sharp has built a reputation as the manufacturer of high quality LCD panels and as such we expected great things from the LC52GD7X - one of their new, native 1080p displays. For the most part, we were not disappointed. The image quality in 1080p and ...
A small, waterproof, flash-based MP3 player sounds like a nifty idea, and this is what Nu has tried to create in their latest digital music device, the Dolphin. However, while the idea may be a good one, the execution leaves a lot to be desired, as t...
The Acer TravelMate 4223WLMi proudly states that it is "Windows Vista Premium Ready" with a sticker on the monitor bezel. A good sign to start out with, it was backed up with reasonably good performance in our tests. However, this result is not as go...

There are many laptops and convertibles on the market but few represent a full realisation of what a Windows-based convertible can be – a total marriage of Windows’ features with the hardware to make the most of it.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
