Change It Up

Bring a little personality to your messenger case with Targus’ eye-catching Fusion range.

The colours in the matt spun-twill material range are wheat, charcoal and chocolate, and each case comes with three different coloured shoulder straps. So mix and match according to your mood. And soon you’ll have even more options, with Targus separately selling an extended version of its shoulder strap range.

All cases come with a neoprene sleeve to protect your notebook, and an additional flap so your notebook stays hidden when you’re accessing other storage sections. 

For $99.95, this compact and lightweight case offers a lot of style.

Gift of the Gab

Feel naked without your phone? Does panic flood your heart whenever the battery hits the last bar? For those of us surgically attached to our phone, the best option in the past was to buy an expensive spare battery; but now Energizer is offering something else. Energi To Go is an instant portable mobile phone charger that provides immediate power. Running off two AA lithium batteries, the lightweight device can provide you with up to nine hours of extra talk time.

For $34.95 have peace of mind, and know you can remain connected.

All Ears

With four times the recording capability of its predecessor, Sony’s ICDB500 Notetaker allows you over 80 hours of recorded talk. But the 256MB recorder also comes with a few more surprises, including the ability to record reminder alarms.

With digital clarity, a large LCD screen and voice-operated recording, this easy-to-use number packs a decent punch for $99.00.

Feel free to wander with your laptop, and still have access to decent internet speeds. The Optus Roamer USB receives coverage at 96 percent of Australian locations, and with broadband speeds, you won’t find yourself waiting. Simply plug into any computer to watch it go. And if you’re on the move, it’ll seamlessly choose the best connection, much like your mobile phone. You’ll also remain connected when overseas, if travelling to a roaming partner country, but overseas speeds and services may vary. Prices start at $34.99 standalone or $24.99 if bundled.

Eeesy PC

Lightweight and compact, the Asus Eee PC claims to be the world’s easiest PC.

Based on the three E’s—easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play—it makes using mobile internet both simple and affordable.

The Eee PC’s hard drive has been substituted for flash storage, and while the system is based on Linux, it can also be used with Windows Vista.

For only $499.00 it’s changing the affordability and portability of PCs.
