Microsoft Touch Mouse @ DreamWare Computers
     Sat, Dec 17 2011 | 12:00P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Here today I have the Microsoft Touch Mouse - although it isn't the first touch mouse on the market, it's certainly one of the sleekest looking ones. Designed to integrate with Windows 7, the Touch Mouse even supports multi-touch features, allowing you to use one, two or even three fingers to control a variety of functions in the Windows operating system. I'm all about finding a way to do more with less and am excited to see if the features of the Touch Mouse will being as practical in use as they are written on the box."

Mushkin Chronos 60GB
     Sat, Dec 17 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD still does offer good read and write performance for its price, especially when compared to mechanical drives. The drive also utilizes the SATA III 6Gb/s interface as well as a Sandforce 2281 controller. For those still using the SATA II 3Gb/s interface the drive is backwards compatible, although you will take a performance it. In the end I'd say that the Mushkin Chronos is a decent SSD, and well worth its cost."

Last week, Mike Smith from Kingston Technology stopped by the Futurelooks Studio to show off three great gifts that no computer enthusiast will be taking back for a refund this holiday season. One of the gift suggestions was Kingston’s Wi-Drive product which gives Apple iOS devices additional wireless storage without having to buy another larger device. The Wi-Drive comes in both 16GB and 32GB sizes and retails for between $119 – 199 US. Android App support is already released in BETA with an imminent full release on the Android Marketplace very soon. This makes it great gift for both Google and Apple Fanboys.

Everki 18.4” Advance Laptop Bag @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Dec 17 2011 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I picked up an 18.4 inch laptop I knew that I would deal with problems while traveling due to its size. What I didn’t expect was to have as much trouble finding laptop bags. While at CES last year I was visiting a company we had seen the year before called Everki and noticed that they had a whole selection of 18.4 inch laptop bags. With CES coming up soon I finally set aside the time to get in touch and give one a try. Maybe their Advance Laptop Bag for 18.4 inch laptops would make traveling a little more convenient for me in the future.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
