LG Renoir (KC910)

Undoubtedly the best camera phone we've reviewed, LG's 8-megapixel Renoir is a superb handset. In addition to a responsive touch-screen interface, the Renoir is an impressive multimedia mobile phone, boasting Dolby Mobile sound, an FM radio and DviX/Xvid playback. LG's insistence on a proprietary headphone/charging jack is a shame, but Wi-Fi, built-in GPS and HSPDA capabilities make up for it.

Hot deal: It's hard to believe that you can grab the LG Renoir on Virgin Mobile for just $0 on a $29 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers will be pleased to know that $29 bonus credit will be applied on their bill within two weeks of activation.

Sony Ericsson C902

Sony Ericsson's C902 is one of the more stylish candybar phones on the market, and even played a cameo role in the latest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It boasts a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash, with a unique sliding camera cover adding to the Cyber-shot experience.

Hot deal: Virgin Mobile has the Sony Ericsson C902 for $0 on a 45 cap plan over 24 months.

Motorola EM330

Motorola's EM330 may be affordable, but if there is one thing the EM330 isn't, it's stylish. This mobile phone commands a ridiculously low price and is packed with plenty of multimedia features, headed by an MP3 player and an FM radio. Both these features work in tandem with the external display, which features touch-sensitive music controls that are displayed when the radio or music player is active.

Hot deal: If you're really on budget, you can pick up the EM330 for $99 on a Virgin Mobile prepaid plan. All Virgin Mobile prepaid plans purchased online come with $5 Free to V credit to be used in the first 30 days.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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.

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
