World's smallest Ethernet card for Win CE handhelds

Socket Communications claims to have developed the world's smallest commercially available Ethernet card, for use for Windows CE-based Palm-size PCs.

In the CompactFlash form factor, the Low Power Ethernet Card has "less surface area than a book of matches", according to Felix Wong from distributors Advanced Portable Technologies.

"Over-the-cable data transfer rate for the LP-E Card is 10 megabits per second -- 500 times faster than a Palm-size PC's serial port," according to Wong.

The card is also claimed to be energy efficient, requiring 60 milliwatts to operate; a typical PC Card uses 10 to 20 times more power.

Socket aims to transfer the low power technology to its PC Card version, and release further I/O devices in the CoompactFlash form factor.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
