The Toshiba 19DV615Y is the company's smallest LCD television currently available.

Toshiba has become the first major television manufacturer to release small-screen LCD TVs with integrated DVD players in Australia: the DV615Y series of televisions. The series includes 19in, 22in and 26in models.

Until now, only smaller manufacturers like Teac and Soniq have released TVs with integrated DVD players.

The new Toshiba TVs are energy efficient, with the 19in model gaining the maximum six star MEPS rating. The 22in and 26in models have 5.5 and five star ratings, respectively.

Unlike many cheaper combo LCD TV/DVD units from companies such as Teac, Toshiba uses 16:9 widescreen panels in its combo televisions, with an HD resolution of 1366x768 (16:10 panels stretch DVD video content to fit their screens).

The DV615Y TVs come with two-year warranties. The 19in 19DV615Y has an RRP of $849, while the 22in 22DV615Y and 26in 26DV615Y retail for $949 and $1049, respectively. The TVs are available in-store now.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

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.
