Reviews Round-Up: Sony netbook appears

Sony W Series netbook

Acer F900

Acer is attacking the smartphone market full tilt with a range of Windows Mobile devices and the F900 is the second that we've seen. With a de rigueur full touchscreen interface, and a wealth of features it ticks all the right boxes except that crucial satisfying to use' one.

Kyocera Mita FS-C1020 MFP - colour laser printer

Just don't mention the scanner! The catchily-named FS-C1020 MFP does all you could ask of a printer designed for small workgroups, and was noted for the superb quality of its output. However, it rather blotted its copybook with its awful network scanning speeds, which rather upset our reviewer.

Sony VAIO Mini W-Series netbook

Sony never categorically said that it would never produce a netbook though it was very disparaging about them when it first released its oh-so-nice but expensive/slow P-Series. However, it has bowed to the realities of the market and brought out the W-Series. It certainly looks like a VAIO, but what's up with the awful keyboard?

Fujitsu Primergy BX900S1 Dynamic Cube

PSU redundancy, advanced cooling, low noise, a range of fabric connectivity options and great management options are just some of the things that caught our reviewer's eye in this very powerful server cube? As he asks, is resistance futile?

Gateway NO20 laptop review

Judging from the look of its machines, there's no doubt that Gateway is truly returning as a pure business play. The design of its machines means that it's never going to be setting hearts aflutter, but if you want a real compact laptop with great battery life, this will sort you out.
