Top 5 all-purpose notebooks

The expression, "jack of all trades, master of none" is traditionally used as an insult. As more consumers look for a blend of usability and mobility, however, an all-purpose notebook is probably the best option for work and play. A good all-rounder ...

There are many things to like about the Compaq Presario V6800 (V6807TU_02): its keyboard is superb for lengthy use and it offers good key size and responsiveness when typing, an excellent webcam sits above an effective 15.4in screen, and the price is...

Sony Vaio VGC-LJ25GB

The Sony Vaio VGC-LJ25GB is an interesting device that's stuck directly on the fence between notebooks and desktops. Its style is a mix of a desktop's form and a notebook's function -- it's essentially an all-in-one PC that's designed to be used as a...

I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
