We were very pleased with the Edifier Esiena iF360. It's more than just an iPod dock, offering a multitude of ways to play music. It also provides amazing audio quality.
Price$ 599.00 (AUD)
The Edifier Esiena iF360 is a great all-in-one audio system that doesn't make any compromises when it comes to sound quality.
The Edifier Esiena iF360 plays host to a variety of ways to listen to music. First and foremost it docks with an iPod or iPhone. If you’re not an Apple nut, fear not as the iF360 has an SD memory card slot, a USB 2.0 port, a CD player, FM radio, and an auxiliary input that allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be connected. In addition to MP3s, it will also play WMA files.
The $599 price might seem like a lot, but you have to keep in mind that the iF360 will play audio from multiple sources, and the quality of the speakers is excellent. The iF360 has clear treble and surprisingly good bass for such a small device. The touch-sensitive volume control also can also be used to adjust the bass and treble.
The two 25W speakers have little to no distortion when the volume is turned up and the audio can easily fill a room. The built-in FM radio receives signals with ease and reception is clear. One thing to note is that if you turn the device off and on again, it will default to a mid-level volume.
Aesthetically, the iF360 is quite pleasing on the eye; its unobtrusive design makes it ideal for any room in the house. Touch-sensitive navigation buttons illuminated with red lighting are located on the top of the unit and are not only responsive but easy to use. The glossy black finish looks great, however it collects fingerprints easily.
A high-intensity dot matrix VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) adorns the front of the unit and clearly shows settings related to the mode the iF360 is in. When the unit is in standby mode, it displays the time and date, and as an added bonus you can program alarms. The menus are simple to navigate and for added convenience the iF360 comes with a remote control.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
I highly recommend the Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook for everyday business use, it is a benchmark setting notebook of its generation in the lightweight category.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
