HP has designed this mini notebook for mobile professionals. The HP Mini 5102 is a netbook with an Intel Atom N450 CPU and 2GB of RAM. It’s available with a standard 10in screen with a 1366x768 resolution, or with a touch-enabled screen.

Touted as the first touch-screen-equipped, all-in-one PC for business, the HP TouchSmart 9100 aims to engage customers with multitouch enabled applications. The HP TouchSmart 9100 features a 23in screen, an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 500GB of hard drive space. It can be used for video conferencing and other multimedia tasks. It’s priced from $1999.

HP Projection Companion

This new addition to HP’s range of notebook accessories is compatible with any laptop that has a VGA connection. It’s aimed at users who need an ultraportable but powerful projector when on the road, and is best used in small meetings. It measures 9.3x4.0x11.1cm, weights 420g, and its AC adapter is the same type as an HP notebook adapter. Retail price: $699.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
