Music players and laptops took pride of place this year, and the smaller the better -- check out our top 10 most read reviews for this year.
- Apple iPod Nano (3rd generation)
Honey, I shrunk the iPod! The new nano has all the features of its big brother, the Classic, but in a smaller package with fewer gigabytes.
- HP Compaq Presario C500
A good value laptop that outperforms many other notebooks at the same price -- the only feature missing is a DVD burner.
- Apple iPod Touch
If the Touch is the player that you want, that you really, really want, you've probably got one already. Fence-sitters should stay there until next year when third-party apps or version 2.0 comes out.
- HTC Touch
While not a iPhone killer, the HTC Touch represents good value for money. If you can do without 3G support or a high-res camera, then the Touch will offer most features you'd require from a smartphone.
- Toshiba Satellite A200
The A200 is a good all-rounder notebook with plenty to offer those on a budget. Just don't expect a performance powerhouse at this price.
- Nokia 6085
Nokia's 6085 is a fashionable flip phone with a broad feature set and an affordable price tag.
- Dell XPS M1330
If you're in the market for a portable, the 1.78kg Dell XPS with its HDMI port and slot-loading DVD is both stylish and a pleasure to use.
- Dell SE198WFP
The Dell SE198WFP is a 19-inch monitor which presents excellent value for money, and a decent level of performance as well. Check our Australian review.
- Fujitsu LifeBook U1010
The Fujitsu U1010 is a cute and fun little gadget, but a low battery life and awkward interface temper our enthusiasm.
- Nokia N82
Nokia's latest N-series handset combines the form factor of the N73 and the feature set of the N95 into one powerful camera-phone package.
