PDA Group test @ TrustedReviews
"PDAs started out as simple diary, address book and to do list repositories. Over the years since their inception almost everything about them has changed, apart from their ‘fit into the palm of your hand’ size. They’ve acquired colour screens, fast processors, longer battery life, wireless connectivity, the ability to support GSM and GPRS, competent facilities for viewing and editing documents produced by PC productivity tools, the ability to complement their features sets with hardware add-ons, and a range of software that can only be described as enormous."

Clear View for XPC Review @ Legit Reviews
"Some computer modders mod for looks, others mod for enhanced performance. Well, the Clear View casing gives the best of both worlds. The plastic design with numerous air holes provide a cooler case, while the fact that it is clear give a lot of room to show your system´s innards hard at work!"

Legion Hardware — Albatron & DFI 865PE Motherboards
"The performance was expected and the results received from these two boards are close to that of the i875P competition. However, performance aside these are extremely good value products. The DFI 865PE Infinity in particular offers extreme value, while the performance figures were better than expected the price tag of $110 US is hard to refuse. With loads of Serial ATA, a highly tweakable BIOS and the numbers to back it up..."

Steelpad 4s Review @ Creative Mods
"The first thing I noticed about the steel pad was its simple, design. It doesn’t have any busy texture, or pattern which makes the steel pad very easy look at. The pad itself is smooth and cold to the touch."

JVC Interlink 7310 notebook review @ Designtechnica
"The 7310 would be the perfect notebook for anyone that demands style and elegance. For most people, the small size of the 7310 will more than likely be an immediate turnoff. The small keys and display are not practical for most people which is why we say the 7310 is more suited to advanced notebook users. The fact that there is no internal CD/DVD drive also means that an external drive will need to be purchased on top of the initial cost. If a PDA is not sufficient for your needs and a full blown laptop is too much, the JVC Interlink 7310 is a perfect compromise. Just be prepared to pay for this compromise; both in price and functionality."
