ViewSonic VX2435wm

<p>For under £500 (inc. VAT), you could do a lot worse than this massive 24in. diagonal wide-screen LCD monitor. And the <a href="http://www.viewsoniceurope.com/UK/Products/LCDX/VX2435wm.htm">ViewSonic VX2435wm</a> is just as suited to serious business work as it is to video and gaming. </p>

Samsung NP-Q45

Samsung NP-Q45

<p>The <a href="http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/mobilecomputing/qseries/np_q45a002suk.asp?page=Features">Samsung NP-Q45</a> is an updated version of the <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/notebooks/0,1000000333,39274653,00.htm">Q35</a> which we reviewed a year ago. We liked that notebook, but a year is a long time in mobile computing, and notebook specifications have changed dramatically since then. Does the Q45 shape up as well as its predecessor? </p>

Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure

<p>First launched in February and updated to version 2 in May, <a href="http://www.doubletake.com/products/vmware-infrastructure/">Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure</a> is a new entrant to the field of virtual machine (VM) replication tools designed to work specifically with VMware Virtual Infrastructure. Unlike some competitors’ claims about their own products, Double-Take says its software is designed for LAN environments and should not be used with WAN links. The minimum installation requirements are two systems running <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/esx/">VMware ESX Server 3.x</a>, plus a third server running a 32-bit version of Windows Server 2003 and the <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/vc/">VMware VirtualCenter 2.x</a> management console. </p>

BlackBerry 8820

BlackBerry 8820

<p>When we reviewed RIM’s <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/mobilephones/0,1000000685,39286080,00.htm">BlackBerry 8800</a> earlier this year, we noted that it was a device aimed at business users but lacking in two key features &mdash; 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. RIM has now dealt with one of those omissions in the new <a href="http://eu.blackberry.com/eng/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C201,P563">8820</a>, adding Wi-Fi into the mix. </p>

Nokia E90 Communicator

Nokia E90 Communicator

<p>Nokia’s Communicators broke new ground when they first appeared back in 1996. The original clamshell-format Communicator 9000 was extremely popular among mobile professionals, helping to create a market for mobile email devices from the likes of BlackBerry, Palm and Microsoft's Windows Mobile hardware partners. A decade on, the Communicator has to survive in a much more competitive ecosystem. </p>
