Archos upgrades its WiFi line of PMPs

Archos is continuing to extend its line of wireless-enabled portable media players with the 704-WiFi. The big brother to Archos' 604-WiFi, the 704 is stocked with a giant 7-inch touchscreen, 80GB of storage, and of course that sexy wireless capability that means you can stream video from your PC, check e-mail, and scan the Internet using the built-in Opera browser.

Like all PMPs, you can watch video, listen to music, and watch slideshows. If you attach it to the optional $120 DVR Station, the unit can record video from a TV or other source, such as a cable box or DVD player. It can also handle PlaysForSure content, so you can download music and videos from any compatible store such as Amazon, AOL, CinemaNow, and Wal-Mart.

Of course, the 704-WiFi isn't exactly tiny, measuring in at 7-by-5-by-.8 inches, and 22 ounces--though a built-in kickstand helps keep the player upright. Nice touch. Battery life is decent: You get 25 hours of music and 5 hours of video.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
