Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook T 3010 Tablet PC @ TrustedReviews
"The key characteristic which makes Tablet PCs different to standard notebooks is that you can write directly to the screen. Your writing can remain in freehand style, or can be converted into editable text, while your drawings can be saved as images for sharing and storing. Some Tablet devices lack a keyboard, offering only the screen, and are known as ‘slate’ style devices. Others, like our review model, have a keyboard and can be used like normal notebooks, but incorporate a swivel mechanism which allows the screen to be twisted and laid flat, screen uppermost, for use in ‘slate’ mode. Writing to the screen requires the use of a digitizer pen since the screens are not touch sensitive."

OCW Exclusive Review : ASUS P4S800D-E
"ASUS P4S800D-E is the 2nd P4 board that incorporates SiS´s Dual Channel DDR400 chipset. The first was the ASUS P4SDX which features the first generation 655 chipset. P4S800D-E skipped the 655FX chipset and went straight to the 655TX chipset which offers better performance. One of the most important advancements is the Advanced HyperStreaming™ Engine which makes it faster than the previous generations of SiS 655 chipsets."

Logitech Z-5300 speaker system review @ Designtechnica
"This is a strong recommend. If you are looking for an affordable set of surround speakers for your game system or computer consider this one. The list price is $200 but we looked around and saw it for as little as $120 with an average price of $140. The speakers are light enough to mount on the wall, out of the way. The sub woofer is large enough to cramp you a bit under the desk. The system has a nice, clean look to it with the option of using the supplied grill or without if you are the type that likes to see the actual speakers. Attention to detail includes the ability to rotate the speaker for the best listening angle. The sound is rich, full and unbelievably clear for such small speakers. THX does not hand out certifications lightly, and this set has earned it."
