NEC launches full-HD plasma TV

The company has introduced three new models to its plasma HDTV range, including a full-HD model which displays at a 1920x1080 resolution.

NEC Thursday launched its first full-HD plasma TV, the 50-inch PXT-50FHDP1.

The PXT operates at a 1920x1080 progressive scan resolution with a 100hz refresh rate, and boasts a 30,000:1 contrast ratio.

The RRP of this model is $3,499, and other sizes will be released in the coming months.

Also on Thursday, NEC launched two new models from its HD plasma range. The 42-inch PXT42XD3 and the 50-inch widescreen PXT50XD3.

While also featuring a 30,000:1 contrast ratio, these models only operate at 1024x768 and 1365x768 respectively.

But they are also a lot cheaper, with the PXT4 model retailing at $1,599, and the PXT5 model at $2,199.

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.
