Sometimes, being given more choices can make it harder to make a decision. That’s the situation with tablet computers today. New to the market, Acer’s Iconia Tab A500 is an Android Honeycomb tablet that will compete with the Motorola Xoom, the T-Mobile G-Slate and the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer.

If you want to sell lots of product, one way to do it is to model your product after something else that’s already popular. Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, for example, is being copied by dressmakers around the world because of the huge demand for the look.

In the age of tablet computers and intelligent telephones, you may not think a refresh to a line of desktop machines would create much buzz, but to the power users that you find at B&H, the new Thunderbolt-equipped quad-core Apple iMacs are electrifying.

Lamborghini is perhaps the ultimate sportscar brand in the world. The cars are unusual, exotic, powerful, beautiful, fast and super expensive. Most people have never even seen a Lamborghini, let alone get to drive one. Fortunately, a lot less money will buy you a Lamborghini notebook computer, which radiates some of the vibe, styling and performance of the real thing.

Deciding between a tablet and notebook is a no-brainer with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. The 10.1-inch multitouch display is a self-contained tablet computer with added touches. Most significantly, you can transform it into a powerful notebook using the optional keyboard docking station. Whether you're in the mood for entertainment or feeling productive, the Eee Pad Transformer, available in 16- or 32GB capacities, is worth a look.

Advancements in processing power and graphics technology, along with inexpensive memory, have contributed significantly to the realism of today’s video games. It’s amazing how far technology has come. Aside from computing horsepower, though, there’s another way to enhance the user experience.

Imagine if you could have a personal media player, or PMP, with a big widescreen display, 160GB of storage space, a built-in FM radio, recording capabilities and more, all for less than $300. That sounds good, but you don’t have to imagine it. The Cowon X7 is real, and B&H sells it. The X7’s feature set and price point are compelling enough to make it a serious contender in the PMP arena.

What does the world’s most advanced dual touch-screen computer have in common with a plain old bicycle? You don’t just hop on a bike and zoom away the first time you try it. You’ve got to learn how to ride first. There’s a similar learning curve with the new Acer Iconia-6120 Dual-Screen Touchbook computer.

Show me a business without a copy machine and I'll show you a seven-year-old kid with a lemonade stand. And despite the prediction that computers will do away with the need for paper copies, the opposite seems to be overwhelmingly true. That being the case, Konica Minolta has introduced a new lineup of laser printers designed to address a variety of office-based needs.

DVD burners have been the standard optical drives found in most new computers for years now. Blu-ray burners have been around for a while too, but only recently have they begun to displace DVD burners. Blu-ray drives are now quite affordable and they’re backward compatible with DVDs and CDs.
