If your existing display just isn't cutting it any more, then it might be time to step up to Ostendo's 43-inch curved monitor. This long-awaited display is now available to buy for just under $US6,500.

The Ostendo CRVD is an LED-backlit display featuring a 32:10 aspect ratio. It was first spotted back in early 2008 when Alienware had it on display at the Consumer Electronics Show. It was sighted again a year later at Macworld 2009, this time sporting NEC branding. Since then, we've heard little on when to expect the quad-DLP display.

However, Ostendo has been quietly selling the CRVD since August. The 2880-by-900 pixel resolution monitor is available via Ostendo's Web site now for $US6,499.

According to early reports, the CRVD monitor is selling surprisingly rather well; it's been put in use by the military, hardcore gamers, and the Crown prince of Dubai. Recession? What recession?

Ostendo posted a video showing gamer playing on not just one, but three (!), CRVD monitors. Watch in envy as he enjoys nearly $US20,000 worth of pixels:

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.
