  • Acer ICONIA Tab W500

    For video on the go, it’s hard to beat the Acer ICONIA W500 tablet. Built in Dolby simulated surround-sound and a 10.1 inch HD screen make movies a treat. The fact that it’s so light, at 1.8 kg, is just icing on the cake. It comes loaded with Microsoft Office Starter 2010 if you’re the kind that allows yourself to be distracted by work.

  • HP Pavilion dv7-4200

    If you love high tech, HD-display-equipped, powerhouse computers, HP will generally have you set. The HP Pavilion dv7 has got all that, and an energy efficient 17.3 inch LED display.

  • Coby Kyros MID7125-4G

    If your tablet needs are a bit simpler, but you want to do some video calling and wouldn’t shudder at a kinder price point, you might want to check out the Coby Kryos MID7125-4G. It may sport a small-ish 7 inch screen, but it has 4gb internal memory; more than enough to surf the Web, catch up with your skype friends and update your twitter status. Plus, the slightly smaller form factor, as compared to other tablets, allows it to be packed into even the smallest purse or carry on.

  • Gateway NV53A

    For a bit more portable, yet still feature and hardware rich notebook, the Gateway NV53 series is a good bet. Besides all the graphical bells and whistles Gateway usually includes in their high-def notebooks, the NV53 is outfitted with a DVD writer and 3 USB ports. You’d be surprised how often having extra USB ports on a notebook can come in handy, especially when you’re teleconferencing on the road.

  • Sony Vaio VPCF 34FDBI

    You’d think that with a 17.3 inch screen, the Sony VAIO would be a giant power suck that can’t handle being unplugged. Well, you’d be wrong, and a bit judgmental. Outfitted with a low-powered but ultra-bright LED screen, the Sony VAIO VPCEF34 is a powerhouse with economy in mind; not to mention it’s pretty easy on the eyes. It’s got all the features that you’d expect in a high-end notebook, but it’s 1600X1900 display ensures a quality viewing experience with any and all media. This VAIO is a road warrior.
