3Com launches new Palm handhelds

3Com Palm Computing Australia today expanded its range of handheld devices with the launch of the Palm IIIx and Palm V organisers.

According to 3Com, the $799 Palm IIIx is intended to meet the mobile computing needs of the corporate workplace and enterprise applications. The IIIx is similar to the Palm III, but ships with twice as much memory (4MB). An internal expansion slot allows for the addition of add-on memory modules or pager cards. Power is provided by two AAA batteries.

At $999, the Palm V is 3Com's "executive" model. The Palm V is thinner than the Palm III and weighs a mere 113g. Those looking for an organiser that doubles as a fashion accessory (or vice-versa) will not be disappointed. The Palm V is elegantly finished in anodised aluminium and ships with an embossed leather front cover. The lithium ion battery can be recharged while the device is being "HotSync"ed in its cradle. Alternatively, an optional travel kit is available which includes a sync cable, recharger and adapters.

Both models are based on the Palm OS, v3.1, which now offers built-in network synchronisation capabilities. The supplied Palm Desktop software now includes Microsoft Outlook connectivity.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

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.
