HP Split 13 x2

The Split 13 x2 combines a fairly lightweight 13-inch tablet with a keyboard, battery and storage dock. It’s a strong concept, though aspects of HP’s execution aren’t as solid as they could be.

Adonit Jot Pro capacitive stylus

A stylus may seem a small, incidental accessory, but this precision pointer proves perfect for turning any capacitive-touchscreen device into a basic but workable graphics tablet. We tested the Jot Pro with a number of different tablets, across a ran...

LG G Flex Android phone (preview)

Though it’s presently only slated for release in South Korea, we had a hands-on with LG’s curved-screen ‘G Flex’ smartphone in Auckland ahead of its appearance at New Zealand’s annual Big Boys Toys expo.

Sony SmartWatch 2

Sony’s latest smartwatch aims to be a notification device above all else. No camera, no speaker, no microphone – it’s no Galaxy Gear, nor does it want to be. That simple approach results in a smart, focused and genuinely useful little piece of weara...

HP ENVY TouchSmart 15 laptop

HP’s ENVY brand once represented the finest consumer laptops the company had to offer. It’s a pity, then, that the latest ENVY 15 left us feeling so disappointed.

Gigabyte P34G gaming laptop

In deference to its Alienware and ROG competitors, Gigabyte’s P34G gaming notebook is Ultrabook-level slim and light, with the sedate styling of a modern business machine. However, it’s not nearly as spineless as its svelteness suggests.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 (preview)

Whilst the ASUS Transformer line began with Android-powered convertibles, the latest Transformer Book T100 sports Microsoft’s Windows 8.1. We had a brief hands-on with the T100 at its launch event in Sydney, late October.

Microsoft Surface 2 Windows tablet

Less than a year after the launch of its first Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets, Microsoft has launched the next iteration of its tablet family, including the Windows 8.1 RT-based Surface 2.

Dell Alienware 18 gaming laptop

Dell’s Alienware 18 is a 5.5kg behemoth of a gaming ‘laptop’, with a massive price and desktop-like specs. We put it to the test, to see just what all that money, weight and bulk will get you.

In pictures: Logitech G602 unpacked

A good mouse is critical to any hardcore PC gamer. Logitech has a good track record in the area, and when we first laid eyes on the G602 in a recent press release we couldn't wait to test it out. We'll have a review for you later this week. For now, ...

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite

Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite is thin, lightweight and offers impressively long battery life, but proves disappointingly gutless in even the most basic tasks.

Unboxing: Lifeproof nüüd for iPhone 5

We've been eagerly awaiting a review sample of Lifeproof's latest IP68-rated waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof 'nüüd' case for the iPhone 5. Watch as we unbox, deploy and get the 'nüüd' a little wet for science.

Hands on: BlackBerry announces new Z30 smartphone

Announced last night, the BlackBerry Z30 is the latest smartphone from the once market-leading company, formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM). We had a brief hands-on with a preproduction version of the device in Auckland this morning.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

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

Steph Mundell

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
