Samsung UltraTouch (S8300)

The Samsung UltraTouch is a full touch-screen mobile phone that also features a physical slide-out keypad.

According to LG, the new interface is the result of more than two years of extensive consumer research. In addition to an all new look and feel under the hood, the Arena boasts HSDPA capabilities, extensive multimedia functions, Wi-Fi and built-in GPS. The amount of storage on offer is also impressive: 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB.

Hot deal: Vodafone offers the LG Arena for $0 on a $99 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers receive the first three months of the contract free of charge.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

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

Jack Jeffries


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.

Taylor Carr


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