Acer Veriton L670G

It's small and inexpensive yet Acer's Veriton L670G is based on an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU, so it has plenty of power for running the applications in your small office or large corporate workplace.

Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCA-09Y01N)

The Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCA-09Y01N) is almost the perfect laptop for home users. It looks good, has a big screen, is comfortable to use, and contains a large array of ports. It's also not a heavy laptop; considering it has a 15.4in screen, its...

Diminutive Olympus E-620 digital SLR unveiled

At a hands-on briefing today in Sydney, Olympus announced its latest digital SLR camera, the E-620. The camera incorporates technology from the Olympus E-30 and the Olympus E-520. It is designed to appeal to users who don't want a bulky D-SLR camera ...

Sony A900 (DSLR-A900)

With a full-frame, 35mm sensor and 26 megapixels to its name, the Sony A900 (DSLR-A900) digital SLR camera is a super-heavyweight when it comes to churning out huge images. It eclipses even the high-end models from Canon and Nikon in resolution (it o...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 (preproduction)

The Panasonic TZ ('travel zoom') series of digital cameras will welcome the Lumix DMC-TZ7 in April. The Panasonic DMC-TZ7 has a 10.1-megapixel sensor and a 10-element LEICA DC 25mm lens. It will be a hybrid camera capable of taking 720p-resolution vi...

Olympus E-30

Even though it’s billed as a mid-range digital SLR camera, the Olympus E-30 is one of the better models on the market for inexperienced users who are thinking of making the switch to a D-SLR but have been scared off by all the dials and buttons. In a...

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

When a digital SLR camera has a price tag of $11,999 — and that's just for the body — you know it's not something that everyday folk will appreciate. Instead it's likely it will only appeal to professionals who make a living from photogra...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT1

Joining Olympus as the only other well-known vendor with out-of-the-box tough cameras, Panasonic is hoping its LUMIX DMC-FT1 will gain traction with outdoorsmen (and women) when it's released in April. It's a waterproof, dustproof and drop-proof comp...

Canon PowerShot A480

It's very hard to like the Canon PowerShot A480 digital camera, because it simply looks and feels awful. The controls are laid out awkwardly on a body that is cramped yet bulky. Its LCD screen has very poor viewing angles and brightness, which can ma...

Dell Optiplex 960

Business users who want a small PC that's well-armed for running the latest office programs will appreciate the Dell Optiplex 960. It won't take up more than a 33cm square on a desk, it will run quietly and it has the latest in hard drive and monitor...

ASUS Eee Top ET1602

The ASUS Eee Top may look like a toy, but it's actually an all-in-one PC with a touch screen. It can be described as an entry-level version of HP's TouchSmart PC -- it's nowhere near as powerful or feature-rich, nor is it as good looking as a TouchSm...

Lenovo ThinkPad T400 6473TBM

For many years ThinkPad notebooks have been the benchmark by which other notebooks have been measured, purely because they are so well engineered and sturdy. If you don't have a need for speed and don't care that your laptop isn't available in five s...

Dell Studio XPS 13

The Dell Studio XPS 13 is a 13.3in notebook that is ideal for travellers, home users and even business users who want something stylish and affordable. It's small, light (2.2kg) and relatively thin. Its latch-less screen and illuminated keyboard are ...

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.
