I got an Acer Aspire 5820TG about one and a half years ago. It was my first laptop, before i had a very old desktop, and it hasn't given me any problems at all. It has a bog 600gb hard drive with an i5 intel core and it has some very handy features that make it very power efficient. It also comes with a good price but i would not buy it if you are mainly going to use it for gaming. But apart from that i would highly recommend it.

I bought my Asus eee soon after it was released in May 2008 with Linux version. At first the desktop menu was so simple seemed unable to be useful for complicated software, but we managed to install Linux Debian xfce4 desktop with the graphics manager x11 specifically x.org, since everything works beautifully just like every other PCs. Now I have Firefox web browser and email, open office all sorts, GNU image, Ekiga & Skype, Pidgin, Cheers and many games installed and working fine. All the software I need are all freely available and working. This highly compact laptop is the lightest also inexpensive yet well functional one I have ever had, without the trauma of everyday virus attack from windows operation system. Fantastic!

I bought this laptop because I have always loved dell products. My other dell was over 3 years old so I needed to upgrade. I look of this laptop was sleek which I liked and had the memory I needed. The computer was fast no problems at all but for the price I feel like I could have gone with samsung which also makes great products. The webcam was good the pixels were slightly graining the keyboard was sturdy and the the screen size and graphics were whatii was expecting. All in all this was a good computer no problems but I wish would have tried one a little cheaper.

Had problems originally as awful Vista was installed. Once this was removed and upgraded to Windows 7 I haven't had a problem since! I would recommend this laptop BUT only if you ditch Vista (overheating and shut down will occur if you don't - the problem is the software not the hardware). Its great being larger with the proper calculator on the side (studying accounts so was a selling point). Keep an eye out for great deals, I got one so am very very very happy! great for students and general home use! 2 years down the line I am still a happy customer and would return to the brand. No problems with the power cord or battery life.

New iPad (3rd Gen)

Review of New iPad (3rd Gen)

"The Ipad Rocks"

The new IPAD is absolutely one of the best hand held devices i have ever purchased.

The biggest surprise was the built in double sided camera, this has allowed to to have lots of fun with the IPAD. The first IPAD was great, however did not come with the built in camera and therefore this is why i love the new version more.

I purchased the 16GB version, and was plesently suprised at how much spare storage room I had after installing the main basic apple applications.

The screen is very responsive and in addition is large in size, most especially when comparing to my blackberry and netbook. Well done Apple on producing a brilliant next generation tablet computer.

The Wireless connection issue I encountered was due to my router, once this was corrected, I have had no problems accessing online reosurces and mobile applications.

I also share my IPAD with the rest of my family, young and old, they all love using it for different reasons, and all of them fight for access on a daily basis.

A top gadget, and one that I personally recommend to all families out there.

After I have changed 3 laptops for several reasons in a year I decided to go for a quality laptop. Mac Book was my first choice since I had been using iPhone for 2 years and was over satisfied with it. I find out that I made a perfect decision from the first day I started to use it. Now it has been more than 6 months I have been using it and I didnt had a single problem. The price is definitely worth it.

The Compaq Presario has a lot to offer for a budget desktop PC that doesn't cost much. It makes for a good general purpose system that balances performance and storage without too high of a price.

Apple went from a garage in the 1970's to the largest corporation of all time in stock market value, beating Exxon/Mobil and IBM, based on two simple ideas. The first didn't work so well; the second was a huge success.

1. Americans have more money than good sense. During the '80s and '90s Apple produced overpriced computers whose target market was people who didn't want to know anything about computers. They wanted an appliance that didn't challenge them, and were willing to overpay for it. Apple's competition was Microsoft programmers. Apple captured well under 10% of the desktop and laptop computer markets.

2. Engineers are crappy programmers. During the 2000s, Apple had phenomenal success with the iPhone, a next generation handheld computer. It succeeded because the competition was Asian hardware engineers, who designed crappy user interfaces. Apple's graphic user interface was beautiful by comparison. As the industry matured, Apple got stronger competition from Android handhelds whose user interface was designed by programmers rather than engineers. Android was late to market, making it look like a me-too iPhone knockoff. This is opposite the situation in the '80s, when Windows looked like a Macintosh imitator. The desktop race was won by value rather than an early start. I predict handhelds will follow the same pattern. Apple will refuse to relinquish its high profit margin and end up as a niche player selling expensive machines.

IBM showed the key to success in a mature market is selling services, not hardware. Apple needs to find a marketable service. Its recent foray into selling "cable TV" delivered via internet may turn out to be a brilliant move. Competition in that arena is the entertainment industry's well-known intransigence. It prefers to outsource technology to monopolistic partners beginning with Technicolor, now with cable companies. Apple could hit a home run if it became the next "trusted partner" of the entertainment industry. Microsoft tried and failed. Netflix slowed down after an auspicious start. Steve Jobs became a Pixar insider because he understood the game. We will see whether Tim Cook can hold Apple's lead. I wouldn't bet on it.
