  • Video Review: Panasonic CF-30 Toughbook

    Panasonic approached us a few weeks ago offering a Toughbook CF-30 to test in any way we saw fit. Rather than a lot of fancy lab tested, we decided to run over the laptop with a Toyota RAV4. The laptop, surprisingly, survived almost unscathed. These laptops are huge. The model we received is built like a tank. All of the ports are protected by waterproof flaps and the case itself locks with an… Read More

    Review: Viliv X70 UMPC

    The Viliv X70 isn’t the first UMPC, nor is it the most feature-filled. It isn’t the most expensive or cheapest. But I’m willing to bet that it’s one of the most important devices in its class.

That… Read More

    Review and Giveaway: HP LX195 MediaSmart Home Server

    Short Version: The LX195 is great back-up solution for both PCs and Macs. It’s a tad overpriced and lacks expandability, but is still a solid Windows Home Server. Oh, and there’s a contest. Read More

    Review: Maingear PC X-Cube 3D

    Boutique PC companies have it rough these days, unless they come up with something truly original or compelling, it's extremely difficult to fight against the bargain brands. However, for those willing to spend a few extra dollars, some amazing machines are out there. One such brand is MainGear PC, one of the relative newcomers to the game. Maingear recently sent us one of their X-Cube 3D Vision… Read More
