  • Western Digital ShareSpace (WDA4NC20000)

    If you're looking for a fast network attached storage (NAS) device for home, or for a small office, and you want one that has lots of storage space, then the Western Digital ShareSpace 2TB, with its Gigabit Ethernet connection and three USB 2.0 ports, could be for you.

  • HP Pavilion dv5-1108AX_01

    The 15.4in HP Pavilion dv5-1108AX_01 is a very attractive laptop that features a great range of expansion ports and a full-sized keyboard that is a dream to use. Unfortunately, its underwhelming CPU detracts from what should be an excellent notebook.

  • Lenovo ThinkPad X301

    If you’re a diehard Windows user, then you probably denounce Apple products like the MacBook Air when in public, while secretly envying their sleek aesthetics in private. Although the Lenovo ThinkPad X301 isn’t as pretty as the Air, it comes very close — and packs in far more hardware.

  • Toshiba Tecra A10

    In the current economic climate, most users looking to buy a notebook will be asking one question above all others: does it give me value for money? Sadly, the Toshiba Tecra A10 doesn't.

  • LaCie Network Attached Space

    Network-attached storage (NAS) devices have traditionally been a labyrinth of networking protocols and port-forwarding features, making them the domain of expert users.

  • Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGDA-00K00R)

    Toshiba’s Satellite Pro A300 is a rather drab-looking workhorse that will satisfy business users looking for a device that’s better than an entry-level laptop but cheaper than a mid-level unit.

  • Fujitsu LifeBook U2010

    When many people think of 'netbooks' they often picture devices like the ASUS EeePC. Cheap and simple to use, ultraportable notebooks have proven to be a hit thanks to their convenient size, despite their frequent lack of high-end features.

  • Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D)

    As the desktop replacement notebook market fills up, the Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 (PSPCDA-00L00D) finds itself either matched or outpaced in almost every respect: from aesthetics and performance to multimedia features and value. In fact, the Pro P300’s only saving graces are its excellent keyboard and its relatively large dual hard drives.

  • HP Pavilion Elite M9380a_01

    Although it features an excellent array of connections that make it suitable as a media centre PC, the performance of the HP Pavilion Elite M9380a_01 didn't live up to our expectations, especially for a unit that costs $2000.

  • Fujitsu LifeBook S6520

    Fujitsu’s latest refresh of its S-series is the LifeBook S6520. Although the chassis design has remained largely identical for the last three generations, the S6520's processor is fast and punchy and the screen is big and bright.

  • Pioneer DreamBook Light IL1

    Since the runaway success of the Asus Eee PC 701 4G, notebook makers have been tripping over themselves trying to cash-in on the popularity of ultraportable laptops. Devices such as the MSI Wind U100 and the latest Asus Eee PC 901 combine surprisingly good performance with cheap prices and portability to be hot items.

  • Toshiba's next-gen notebooks

    Yesterday Toshiba unveiled its new line-up of consumer and business notebooks, with an ultramobile prototype stealing the show.

  • HP DX2710_03 (FH071PA)

    The modern business PC is a feature-packed creature, but rarely does it come with its own Morse-code signal light for use on ocean-going vessels. At least, that's what we initially thought the sliding shutter that shields a useless green light on the front of this small form factor PC was for.

  • BenQ Joybook A53-BV09

    The BenQ Joybook A53-BV09 finds itself outclassed by several of its competitors. Lacking the latest network connections and suffering from several usability issues, this device's only saving grace is a relatively large 160GB hard drive and a pleasing, simple design.

  • Toshiba Portege M700 (PPM70A-0G301G)

    The Toshiba Portege M700 (PPM70A-0G301G) is a great notebook that provides connectivity options such as HSDPA and draft-N wireless -- which are great features for road warriors shopping for a tablet. Unfortunately, it isn't quite worth its very high asking price of $4180 because of 3G provider limitations and a screen with a very limited viewing angle.
