The nc6220 is a Compaq sub-branded business notebook from HP that includes Intel's second-generation Centrino (Sonoma) technology.
This mid-sized, thin and light (2.2kg) notebook features a bright (200cd/m²) and unusually sized 14" widescreen display.
The key specifications of this highly portable 915 chipset (Sonoma) Centrino machine include a 2GHz Intel Pentium M processor, an 80GB hard disk and a multiformat DVD writer.
The heart of this Centrino-branded (802.11b/g Wi-Fi-equipped) machine is a 1.8GHz Intel Pentium M processor, 512MB of 333MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM, an 80GB 5400rpm Fujitsu hard disk and a multiformat DVD writer.
Like other recent Acer models, the latest TravelMate, the 8104WLMi, has a stylish corporate folio appearance.
This model features great battery life (110 minutes in a worst-case-scenario) that can be tailored using Acer's ePowerManagement software. It's quite light at just 3kg and it has cutting-edge specifications such as the 2GHz Pentium M processor.
High-end performance and great battery life are the main drawcards of this machine. Using a Dothan Pentium M CPU (running at 1.8GHz), the 8005LMi also has 512MB of memory and an 80GB hard drive. This combination of components produced a fine score of...
It's clear that Acer has put some serious thought into its TravelMate 3200 range.
Although inexpensive, the TravelMate 2304LCi is characterised by the same stylish corporate folio appearance as Acer's top-level range.
Acer, the official supplier to the Scuderia Ferrari F1 racing team, has launched its new Ferrari 4000 notebook series bearing the famous prancing horse logo and packing in some interesting new technologies.
When I think of racing, I think of ear-bleeding engine noise and fiery multicar pileups. Maybe that's why I initially steered clear of the Acer Ferrari 4000 with its black-checkered lid and "EAARRRrrrrrooom!" startup sound. (Acer says you can turn th...
Acer's low-cost Extensa range is perfect for the budget and educational markets. Acer has reduced costs on this particular 3000 series configuration by omitting Wi-Fi and accelerated graphics--however, these remain options.
This notebook uses a 2.8GHz Intel Celeron D processor, which provides good performance for a good price, certainly, but doesn't really charge out of the gates. The graphics are integrated, which means the latest games are off-limits, but you can opt ...

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