If you are looking for the size and weight of a netbook but you need the power and flexibility of an Intel Core 2 Duo, there is really only one contender — the Fujitsu P1630. I’ve had the opportunity to try out the Fujitsu P1630 convertible notebook for the last few days. I love this […]

Sometimes I find a device with which I get an emotional connection that transcends technical features and specifications. The HP Vivienne Tam Mini 1000 is just such a device.

p1030688-small.jpg

I go the chance to play around with the Samsung Papyrus in the Samsung booth. While the Samsung representatives had absolutely no information about the Papyrus, I was able to find the information management, active digitizer notetaking, and, of course, book reading to be very functional. The pen lag on notetaking was vastly improved over […]
