Hands-on Review

With so many choices, it can be difficult selecting a mobile computer that's right for you. You've got all sorts of tablets, netbooks and notebooks to choose from. If you're looking for something that's easy to travel with but doesn't compromise on build quality or performance, then consider Sony's new VAIO Z Series notebook computers.

Netbooks are great when you need a mobile computer that’s as lightweight as possible. But they leave much to be desired when it comes to computing horsepower. Netbooks simply don’t have enough oomph to run processor-intensive applications such as video encoding, CAD/CAM, gaming or music-production software.

Gaming, on the PC platform, used to be reserved for desktop systems. Notebook computers simply weren’t powerful enough. But today, notebook computers are more powerful than they need to be even for high-end gaming. A good example is the ASUS G74SX, available in two trim levels, the G74SX-A1 and G74SX-A2.

HP’s glossy TouchPad tablet has a lot to recommend it. Notably, the innovative webOS operating system manages multiple tasks simultaneously. It treats all your open applications as cards that you drag across the screen.

If you were expecting Windows on the new HP TouchPad, guess again. What distinguishes this sleek multi-touch tablet is that it’s neither an Android or iOS device. Instead, it’s HP’s first webOS tablet.

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.

Tablet computers are experiencing a golden age, with new models being introduced regularly. One of the neat things about this period is all the experimentation occurring with different form factors and feature sets. Many people feel that touch-screen tablets with no keyboards will someday become more popular than notebook computers.
