Asus EAHD4870X2 Top graphics card

If you’ve read the review of Nividia’s GeForce GTX 295 card on cnet.com, you might be able to guess our assessment of this overclocked, Asus-packaged version of AMD’s ATI Radeon HD4870X2. Simply, for $550–$50 more than the Nvidia card–the amped up Radeon card gives you less performance and uses more power along the way. The only solace we can offer for AMD is that this card has a minor (borderline irrelevant) software support advantage, and a mildly easier setup process. Whether you value those features or not, the primary reason for purchasing an expensive 3D card is speed. And in the high-end price range, the Radeon EDHD4870X2 …

Sony Alpha DSLR-A900

Sony makes a point of not calling this a “professional” camera, instead referring to it as the “flagship” model of its dSLR line. However, it’s priced like a pro model, and its full-frame competitors–the Nikon D700 and the Canon EOS 5D Mark II–are widely, though not exclusively, used by professionals. Finally, with such a high-resolution sensor you need a really sharp, preferably fast lens such as the Zeiss 24-70mm f2.8 we tested it with; lenses such as that are expensive and generally out of reach for all but professionals.
Furthermore, Sony provides some of the most innovative and pro-friendly accessories we’ve seen, such as its sideways rotating HVL-F42AM flash and VG-C90AM battery grip, which almost exactly …

Fujitsu Lifebook T1010

Combining a screen that’s roomy enough to avoid eye strain and a weight that’s still reasonable enough to carry to the coffee shop or on the occasional business trip, 13.3 inches may be the most perfect size for a laptop. How much better, then, that Fujitsu has issued the LifeBook T1010, a tablet whose 13.3-inch display rotates and folds down over the keyboard to let you take handwritten notes? Viewed as a laptop, the LifeBook T1010 seems fairly average, with a typical assortment of features and the entry level of Intel’s latest Centrino 2 components. Viewed as a tablet, however, the LifeBook T1010 seems more compelling: it’s priced lower than many 12.1-inch tablets, yet provides …

LG 50PG20

The LG 50PG20 is the company’s least expensive 50-inch plasma, competing against similar entry-level models from Samsung and Panasonic. It doesn’t have the 1080p resolution of higher-priced plasmas, but we didn’t really miss that extra detail. What we did miss with this LG, namely deep black levels and more accurate color, causes us to prefer the panels of those other brands in terms of pure picture quality. The 50PG20 has a lot of picture adjustments and slick styling, however, and all told it still outperforms no-name budget plasmas.
Design
We liked the looks of the LG 50PG20, especially considering its price. The glossy black frame, which is as thin as we’ve seen on any consumer 50-inch plasma, …
