Hewlett Packard 4510 SB
December 1st, 2009

The first thing we enjoyed was the keyboard. It’s a nice enough surprise to see a notebook with a full extended keyboard, but the 4510 takes some cues from recent rethinking in keyboard usability from companies like Apple and Toshiba (with their recent NB200 netbook).

Windows 7
September 1st, 2009

Even more important however was reinstalling the software that had been on the system before. Most installed using Vista drivers with no trouble. A few niggles and trip-ups were solved in the Device Manager by updating or reinstalling drivers from the .inf files on install CDs. So far, we haven’t come across a single program, driver or update we’ve been unable to install.


Apple Logic Studio
December 1st, 2009

But as the first two headings illustrate, it’s for you whether you make music by sitting on a stool with real instruments or entirely using a keyboard (the qwerty kind). It contains Logic pro 9, Mainstage 2, Soundtrack Pro 3 and a host of production and effects tools.

Knowledge is Power
August 1st, 2009

Apple’s Final Cut Studio 2 is a good example, packed with video editing, motion graphics, audio, colour grading, encoding and DVD tools for $1,698 (tools that would have costs hundreds of thousands of dollars in the analogue era).


Adobe Creative Suite
June 1st, 2009

Some of the included applications are a little bit of a mystery. Anyone with the money to spend on a software family such as Creative Suite 4 would surely be a pro-level designer and use Dreamweaver instead of Contribute, but the latter’s still there.

iPod Touch
February 1st, 2008

Using the touchscreen to navigate your way around is not only easy but enjoyable, and for a little while you’ll be entranced simply with the capability to mine this deeply into things simply with one finger.
