REVIEW

HP Spectre 13t-3000 Ultrabook

The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.

REVIEW

Asus Eee PC T91 ( black)

Asus does a good job combining a Netbook and a touch screen in the Eee PC T91, even if the system hits a couple of first-generation snags.

HTC Shift
REVIEW

HTC Shift

The HTC Shift's small size raises some usability issues, and its battery life doesn't match what we'd expect from such a portable device. However, our primary complaint about the Shift is its remarkably high price.

REVIEW

Fujitsu LifeBook U810

Ambitious but flawed, the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 has more of a traditional laptop design than other UMPCs, but the otherwise excellent keyboard is marred by the loss of several important keys.

Asus R2H Ultramobile PC
REVIEW

Asus R2H Ultramobile PC

The Asus R2H is too big to be truly ultramobile, but its relatively large screen and decent battery make it good for on-the-go Web surfing and media playing, even if the onscreen keyboard is a chore to use.

REVIEW

Samsung Q1 ultramobile PC

The Samsung Q1's sleek case is definitely eye-catching, but we expect better performance and battery life for a thousand of our hard-earned bucks.
