Intel today launched a high-performance Solid-State Drive [SSD] aimed at server, workstation and storage systems.

According to Intel, benchmarks conducted by the company show the X25-E can increase server, workstation and storage system performance a hundredfold, as measured in Input/Output per Second [IOPS].

The drives are priced at USD$695 [AUD$1,060] for quantities of up to 1,000. A 64GB version is expected to ship in early 2009.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
