Fashionable Tablet PC:LT20-4

LG levers its recent good form in notebook computing and its consumer electronics background with this, it's first Tablet PC. This stylish convertible has a bright 12.1in display (with wide viewable angle and Wacom digitiser backing) that can be used like a traditional notebook or fold back on itself to become a slate. Using a stylus to scribble down and save notes or diagrams in a meeting and swivel the screen around to show other attendees has obvious appeal. Tablet PCs are also slowly winning fans in education, finance and healthcare industries.

The LT20-4 isn't a powerhouse of a machine (it scored 66 in PC WorldBench 5 and 2526 in 3DMark 2001) but will handle everyday applications in addition to those integrated into Windows XP Tablet PC Edition including handwriting or voice-to-text conversion.

The LT20-4 has no built-in CD/DVD drive, which keeps its weight down to a svelte 1.75kg.

LG pre-installs network configuration and battery life management software in addition to an "ez-menu" system settings interface. This pops up when you press the ez-menu button found at the top-right of the display, next to the Windows Journal shortcut, screen orientation and power buttons. , cursor up and down and buttons are also located at the bottom-right of the display - handy when in slate mode.

The battery has power indicator lights and part of the rear of the notebook can flip down to raise the notebook at the back (and store a spare mini-stylus).

Verdict One of the best looking, lightest (and one of the least expensive) tablet PCs we've seen. Danny Allen

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
