LG Tab-Book Z160 hybrid tablet

With the LG Tab-Book, you get an 11.6in, Windows 8-based hybrid device that is more tablet than it is notebook. Its touchscreen sits above the keyboard and base of the unit, and it springs up to expose the keyboard easier than most other devices that...

Bush BR40DAB digital radio

The wooden look of the Bush BR40DAB portable digital radio is attractive, and its sound quality is decent enough for a small radio. However, the control buttons on the front, and the menu system in general, just don't make for an enjoyable user exper...

D-Link DSL-2890AL 802.11ac modem-router

A new shape has been embraced by D-Link and it's cylindrical. The company's DSL-2890AL modem-router immediately stands out because of its tall and round design, but it's also got plenty of good stuff inside. It's an 802.11ac router that can supply fa...

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m Ultrabook

Toshiba Canvio Slim portable hard drive

Metalbox MP10 Android tablet

The Metalbox MP10 is a run-of-the-mill, 10.1in tablet that has a relatively low price point. You can buy this thing for $199, and while it isn't blazing fast, it's a very good unit for browsing the Web, watching videos and communicating online. It's ...

Toshiba KIRA Ultrabook review

There's a lot of excitement around the high-end KIRA laptop from Toshiba, primarily because it comes with the best screen ever to be put into an Ultrabook. Not only does it have excellent colour, high brightness, and wide viewing angles, it also has ...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix convertible Ultrabook
