Zeppelin Air

1. Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

Bowers & Wilkins knows that the Zeppelin Air is a premium product. It's very pretty and sounds very good, and now has the advantage of Apple's AirPlay wireless music streaming system -- the only downside is its high price.

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

Simon Harriott
