Do you remember the days when PCs were the size the size of a small bungalow and you had to feed punch cards into them? Neither do I, but some crazy old guy told me about them once. Those were the days my friend indeed but now they are gone with the wind and the PC which we are going to be poking around today is so small that you could slip one under most dogs without any of the edges poking out. Acer Aspire One 531 laptop is the name of said machine.   Design This is a small one. The screen is a reasonably size at 10.1 inches but the...

Two things have been on my mind recently. Firstly, if the world’s most popular first name is Mohammed and the most popular surname is Chang why have I never come across a Mohammed Chang?

Which laptop you end up buying depends upon what features are of most interest to you. I know that sounds pretty obvious but it is still worth taking a little bit of time to make a note of what you most need out of your portable computer before plumping for one. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the Acer AS5935G and see what kind of person it might appeal to. Design This is neither the biggest and heaviest nor the smallest and lightest of laptops. It is what you might call a midsized unit. Big enough to contain a 15.6 screen and...

The new Predator shares the admittedly garish case of its stable mates, complete with a hinged front panel that resembles an alien battle mask and covers the bright orange face plate in a more reserved black. Inside an Intel quad core i7 processor running at 2.8GHz lurks and its partnership with 12GB of DDR3 RAM and an NVIDIA 470 GTX graphics card make it suitably powerful...

The Toshiba Libretto W100 is a unique arrival on the laptop market because it is the first device to feature two screens that are both fully touch sensitive. The popularity of tablet computers, as manifest in Apple’s iPad, has doubtless fuelled the production of the W100, whilst Toshiba has retained several key laptop features, such as a clamshell design, thus making it something of a hybrid. The W100 has Windows 7 preinstalled and it takes advantage of the native touchscreen support offered by Microsoft’s latest operating...
