Logitech Notebook Riser N110

The Logitech Notebook Riser N110 is a flexible ergonomic stand, but check first for a perfect fit if you use a thinner laptop.

ZTE MF60

Telecom Square's Global Hotspot is a dependable and convenient way to access the Internet while traveling, but you'll need to be a heavy data user to make the service economical.

Apogee ONE

Hook the Apogee One to an iPhone or iPad, and you can make high quality recordings at just about any location.

Targus Lap Chill Mat

The Targus Lap Chill Mat is among the least-ugly laptop fan stands we've seen, helping it rise above the generic-looking competition.

Creative Sound Blaster X7

The Creative Sound Blaster X7 offers a ridiculous number of features for the money and sound quality is generally very good, but its appeal is limited.

Asus ROG XG Station 2

Nine years after it launched the XG Station external graphics card, ROG decides it's time for an upgrade: the VR-capable XG Station 2. Better late than never, right?

Netgear Mobile Router MR1100

Good things come in small packages, but this one's only coming to Australia.

The Novatel Wireless MiFi Liberate is arguably the best mobile router AT&T has offered yet.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 / 3 GHz processor

The quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6850 keeps the desktop CPU performance belt tied firmly around Intel's waist at a price that helps offset the lack of sizable performance gains. New products at the end of the year may outclass this new chip when they arrive, but for now, the QX6850 reigns supreme.

Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 965 / 3.2 GHz processor

Thanks to an expensive new motherboard requirement, Intel's new Core i7 desktop processors will remain enthusiast and professional-level parts until more affordable complementary hardware comes out later next year. Speed never comes cheap, however, and if you're willing to spend for it now, you'll find yourself in possession of the fastest CPU on the market.

Tekkeon myPower MP1100

While not for everyone, the Tekkeon MyPower is a great option for iPod users who are constantly looking for an AC power outlet.

AMD Black Edition AMD Phenom X4 9850 / 2.5 GHz processor

AMD's new Phenom X4 9850 is overpriced and outclassed compared with its Intel-based quad-core competition. If PC vendors can use this chip to make cheap systems (as they did with older Phenoms), we might have nicer things to say, but as a DIY part at this price, we can't recommend AMD's latest quad-core CPU.

Intel Core 2 Duo

If you thought dual cores were over the top, get ready. Intel presents the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, a single CPU with four distinct processing cores. At $999, the first quad-core CPU will remain an enthusiast part for a while, but as a glimpse of the future, it's clear that clock speed is out and core counts are in.

Iomega Super DVD Writer

Iomega's Super DVD Writer offers competitive performance for a reasonable price--perfect for anyone who wants five-format flexibility.
