I have long been a fan of Acer notebook computers. It’s not that they’re much of a fashion statement, as there are other brands you can own that will garner far more attention at the no-fat soy latte macchiato bar. What I like is that they’re priced right and I’ve had trouble free, long-term experience with at least three of them.

Adobe Acrobat X is here. It’s the latest version of the software that lets you create, view and distribute documents that appear the same regardless of the available typefaces or platform—print or Web. It’s a powerful bit of software that enables universal document creation and distribution of Acrobat's PDF files.

Notebook computers have been stealing the spotlight in the PC proscenium for years now, but desktop systems still have their place in the office. If you need the most powerful system you can buy, are concerned about expansion capabilities, need to use a very large monitor or are worried about notebook computers being stolen, then you need a desktop system.

While there are a number of scanners selling for under $1,000 that are capable of producing high definition, well-detailed scans of flat artwork, few in this price range are capable of producing high-def scans of photographic transparencies, most notably 35mm slides. One of the few exceptions to this rule is the Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner.

Capturing and editing video has always involved a blend of high-end equipment, technical expertise and a bit of magic. Anyone with the know-how can buy or put together a powerful computer, and it’s not difficult to install all the required software applications. But the magic comes into play when it’s time to make all the hardware and software work together properly.

What's 0.11 inches thick, weighs 2.3 pounds, and can stay powered-on from its battery for up to 30 days? I'll give you a hint: it's not a new tablet computer with a robotic-sounding name. These impressive specs belong to Apple's new MacBook Air.

School started last week in the New York area. That means lots of people, students and teachers alike, are in the market for new notebook computers. Fujitsu’s product lineup is so comprehensive, there’s a model that suits everyone’s needs. I’m going to go over some of Fujitsu’s lineup and, in the spirit of how kids are lined up in school—at least when I went—I’ll cover these portable computers in size order.

Ordinary people can use ordinary flash drives. But those involved in infantry, demolition, deep sea diving, espionage, smash-up derby, ultimate fighting and other rough-and-tumble activities will want a more rugged flash drive. It can’t hurt if the drive holds 64GB, either. Of course, anyone who likes cool gadgets will find the LaCie XtremKey appealing.

You can buy a 46-inch, flat-panel TV for well under $1,000. So why does the 30-inch Hewlett-Packard ZR30w computer monitor cost more? It’s because the ZR30w incorporates Super In-Plane Switching technology, or S-IPS for short.

There are many ways to back up a computer, and lots of devices for this purpose. Most such devices are a nuisance for mobile users because they add to the bulk and weight of everything that has to be kept in tow. But Lexar’s new backup solution for netbook and notebook computers is no bigger than your thumb nail.

Using a notebook computer as a source for HD content to be viewed on a big screen TV is becoming more and more common. With easy access to downloadable HD content and notebooks having hard drives large enough to store HD content and enough muscle to process it, there’s no reason not to view the content on an HDTV.
