Compaq enters palm-size PC market

Compaq has released its first palm-size PC -- the Aero 2130 - featuring a reflective colour TFT screen, and based on the Windows CE operating system.

Compaq is aiming the Aero 2130 ($1175 RRP) at professionals who need mobile access to their contacts and scheduling information.

The Aero 2130 comes with 16MB of memory (upgradable with 24MB expansion modules). While the unit's screen displays 256 colours at 240 x 320 pixels, and offers a viewable area 44 per cent larger than that of 3Com's Palm III, says Compaq. And because it is reflective TFT, viewing the screen is as easy outdoors as indoors, claims Compaq.

Synchronisation between the Aero 2130 and a Windows-based PC is seamless, according to the company, which also claims that the unit's rechargable Lithium-ion batteries can provide up to 10 hours of continuous use.

A docking cradle and application software are also bundled with the Aero 2130 package.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
