HP Compaq tc4400

HP Compaq tc4400

Small-format convertible Tablet PCs are, on paper, an ideal combination of form and function: they are light and therefore portable; they can be used as standard notebooks, and, thanks to their twisting screen, can also work in Tablet PC mode (either on the desk, or, if light enough, in the crook of an arm). HP Compaq's new tc4400 shows every sign of fitting the bill nicely, and with its fingerprint recognition and attractive pricing could well catch the eye.

Acer p610 Portable Navigator

Acer p610 Portable Navigator

Acer is building a portfolio of portable navigation devices, and its current range includes both Windows Mobile Pocket PCs with GPS built in and standalone navigation devices like the p610. There are three models in the p600 series; all come with maps courtesy of Navteq and have a version of the ALK CoPilot 6 software installed. The models vary in whether they include live traffic information and Bluetooth, and in the version of CoPilot they run. The two higher end models come with CoPilot ‘Premium’ while the p610, reviewed here, does not. Nor does it have Bluetooth and live traffic data support. Even so, the price is very competitive.

IBM System x3455

IBM System x3455

Like both Dell and HP, IBM sells a variety of industry-standard servers based on Intel dual-core, and now quad-core processors. However, IBM was also one of the first server vendors to use AMD silicon, and the model we looked at, from its xSeries family, is based on the latest dual-core Opteron chips introduced in 2006. There are several different AMD models in the xSeries line-up: the <a href="http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/uk/x/rack/x3455/">System x3455</a> is a 1U rack-mount server targeted primarily at customers looking to run compute-intensive scientific, technical and financial modelling applications. As such, it can be fitted with two dual-core Opteron processors but is somewhat restricted when it comes to storage and redundancy options.
