NEC MobilePro 300E Pocket PC

This latest Pocket PC from NEC, the MobilePro 300E, has a good, but very common spec: a 206MHz StrongARM processor, 64MB of RAM, 32MB Flash ROM and a 3.5in TFT backlit 16-bit 320x240 colour screen (which isn’t bad, but isn’t as bright as that of the Toshiba e740).

There are few surprises on the software front, either — you get AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), MGI’s PhotoSuite for Pocket PC, a golf game and Acrobat Reader, on top of the standard Pocket PC 2002 application suite.

The 300E’s most obvious differences are its size and weight: 125x77x15mm and a touch under 150g. Although not as small as the Toshiba e310, it’s hardly bulky. It has a single Secure Digital slot at the top; if you want to plug in CompactFlash or PC Cards, you’ll need to buy a Rocketeer module that clips on the back. This module usefully includes a second battery, and there’s also a cool-looking sync cradle that’s illuminated in blue when it’s powered up.

The 300E slots into the front of the cradle, and there is room behind to dock the machine without having to remove the Rocketeer module. The cradle includes a slot for recharging a second battery.

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.

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.
