SanDisk SDHC cards climb to 4GB

Earlier this year Panasonic and Toshiba announced 4GB SDHC cards (SDHC -- Secure Digital High Capacity -- being the next generation of SD flash memory), both of which will be available in the coming months.

Sandisk not only announced that they're (just barely) beating Toshiba and Panasonic to the punch with a 4GB SDHC card, they're bundling their MicroMate SD/SDHC USB 2.0 card reader with it, too. (Users will need the reader until more of their devices can handle the seemingly-identical-but-incompatible new format.)

The 4GB SanDisk SDHC bundle is expected to be available in Australia in Q4/2006 with pricing to be announced closer to the launch date.

SDHC is the new designation for SD cards larger than 2GB that adhere to the SD Card Association's SD 2.00 specification. According to SanDisk, because SDHC cards are recognized by new SDHC host devices differently than standard SD cards, it is not backwards compatible with legacy SD format host devices. However, standard SD cards are forward compatible with new SDHC host devices.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
