There's something about a 13" notebook with a 9 hour battery life that calls to mind true love in notebook form, and that's what I thought I had encountered when I first read Laptop magazine's review of the HP Pavilion dm3t, but no love is without fault and the trackpad of the new dm3t changes it from love at first sight to try before you buy.
Windows 7 is officially out which means it's time to think about upgrading. Unfortunately upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 is made difficult by that fact that, by default, Microsoft has not provided a way to do an in place upgrade. Normally this would mean that you would need to wipe your hard drive clean and start from scratch but a program called PCMover from LapLink makes upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 as easy as any other upgrade.

For the last few weeks I've had the opportunity to use the Dell Studio 14z laptop while I test out Phoenix Technologies new Laptop location technology service called FailSafe. The Dell Studio 14z is one of the most portable full size Dell laptop's to hit the market and starts at $699. The Studio 14z ditches the optical drive to cut the weight down to 4.3 pounds and when combined with the slim design makes for an attractive packaged 14" laptop. You can get the 14z in Black Chainlink, Ruby Red, Midnight Blue, Spring Green and Plum Purple. Overall the Studio 14z is a good laptop with a few quirks but in the end the extras make up for most of the shortcomings.
I've got a confession. A little over a month after I swore off netbooks for one computer, my MacBook Pro, I found a rare deal that couldn't be passed. I hap...
The rubberized Samsung Go Netbook first caught my attention when it was released in Europe and the unique form factor still has my attention now that it has hit the American shores. While other netbooks and small notebooks attempt to be the next cheap Macbook Air; the Samsung Go is decidedly different and that plays into its favor. Brad Linder at Liliputing recently had the opportunity to review the Samsung Go and has provided a full report on the pros and cons of Samsung's design choices.
Even though itâ€™s not quite cold enough for snow in most of the U.S. Appleâ€™s latest upgrade, Snow Leopard, has arrived on store shelves and will be hitting the doorsteps of Mac owners in whatâ€™s sure to be a busy day for UPS and FEDEX. So how does the big cat upgrade stack up? The good news is that most of the reviews agree that Snow Leopard is a solid upgrade and despite its lack of major changes to OSX the little tweaks and behind the scenes changes â€“ coupled with the low upgrade price â€“ earn it recommendations from across the web.
There comes a time in every gadgets life when its ball drops and a more mature model comes to market. Never has this been truer than with the Blackberry Curve 8520 which is now available on T-Mobile. The new Curve looks similar to the other phones in the Curve lineup and shares many of the same features but its optical trackpad is what makes it stand out and say, "Look at me." By ditching the traditional rollerball for a smooth trackpad and throwing in a 2G radio RIM was able to create a very functional phone at an attractive price point; $50 at Walmart with a 2 year agreement.
Facebook, Facebook, Facebook! Things are really heating up for the social network especially on the news that it acquired Friendfeed which could provide it a leg up on its competitor Twitter. Why am I starting out a phone review with a news update for Facebook? Well because the Sony Ericsson W518a, which runs on AT&Tâ€™s network, is all but called a Facebook phone.
Aliph's Jawbone 2 is my favorite Bluetooth headset and an item that should be on the top of your holiday shopping list. It's both highly functional and highly fashionable, pleasing users with its NoiseAssassin technology and sleek styling.
