2-0 out of 5 stars Unpleasant to use
Nobody would give the authors of this software an ease-of-use award. From the outset it behaves as if it were written to please IT specialists and others whose careers depend on things being complicated and incomprehensible to mortals. Even when Retrospect is being directed to do something simple, it is not simple to do because it speaks some alien jargon. It could really serve as a model for bad interface design.

It isn't much discussed, but the Mac is really lacking quality tools for backup, file synchronization, and similar critical tasks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best there is!
Why the low ratings?I have used this for back-ups for years and it's just flat out the best there is for back-up.Do these "other users" really back-up?It's really simple and does it all.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's not easy to use.
Like other reviewers, I used to swear by Dantz backup software. I used its DiskFit for years. When I upgraded to OS X, I got Dantz's Retrospect and have had a fair number of problems.

1. Dantz gives you one free tech call in the first 30 days and then charges like $70 if you have a problem after that. I think they should give you one free tech call ANYTIME. Most users won't have a problem in the first 30 days -- and when you have a problem after your first hard-drive disaster, getting hit for $70 just adds insult to injury.

2. In order to use an external hard-drive as a backup location, you've got to select this option inside a couple of screens in preferences. This should be the default, especially since this is the favored way of backing up an entire internal hard drive. And even if you've selected it in preferences, if you crash and have to restore from the original CD, you've got to remember this minor selection or your restore won't work, causing much panic as I found out.

3. The program has behaved differently with different backups, causing confusion. For months it performed the backup simply to my external hard drive, then one day it required that my external hard drive be erased to do the backup.

4. When I did experience a problem that required a restore, the program crashed AFTER erasing my hard drive but BEFORE restoring anything. This was distressful.

5. I've had to use the manual many times in my backups because the program simply isn't intuitive.

I give it two stars because I was actually able to restore my data and the thing grudgingly does its job. But, man, I wish it worked more simply for the average user who doesn't give a darn about scripting and network backups.

1-0 out of 5 stars Retrospect wants you to buy expensive support and for what?
I use to swear by retrospect and it never let me down until OS X. Since Dantz started to support OS X its been "You can purchase Retrospect Support, for $xxx a year...." and how good is this support? Not very I have a very common DVDR Drive that they still don't support, I wouldn't complain if I owned the express back up, but I own the Pro package and the support is lousy! so many $$$ a call to find out that I need to update to their new software after I had just purchased an upgrade and then they still can't say they know if they support a Pioneer A107 DVDR!? $150 plus a year for support I don't think so..

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Dung
Loved Retrospect when it first came out. I've used this version on 3 different computers. Some with freshly formatted source and destination drives. Never completes without errors that render the backup sets unusable. If you buy it make sure you suspect Retrospect first and not waste your valuable 30 days free support working on the drives as I did. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Bring mobile computing to your life without breaking the bank with the no-nonsense, yet powerful Compaq Presario M2010US notebook PC. It's powered by an Intel Celeron M 350 processor, which provides up to 3 hours of battery life. And you'll be able to work while on the go with the built-in 54g wi-fi LAN with 125 HSM/SpeedBooster support. This notebook features a 40 GB hard drive, 256 MB of installed RAM, 15-inch display, and combo DVD/CD-RW drive.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: Since the focus is on affordability, the M2010US comes with just a 40 GB hard drive (4200 RPM)--small compared with other notebooks, but in line with the price of this notebook. It's still enough room for home office productivity software, storing family photos, and a decent-sized digital audio library.
  • Processor: The Intel Celeron M processor is designed specifically for mobile computing, offering a balanced level of mobile-optimized processor technology, good mobile performance, and exceptional value. The 1.3 GHz speed resides in the middle of the spectrum for this processor (as of March, 2005). It also features a 400 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and large 1 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)
  • Memory: The installed 256 MB (266 MHz) is underpowered for today's demanding office productivity and multimedia applications and immersive 3D games. You'll want to take advantage of the 1 GB total RAM capability (2 x 512 MB).
  • CD/DVD Drive: The combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive can read CDs at 24x, write at 24x,and rewrite at 24x speeds. It can read DVDs at 8x.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a 101-key keyboard and a touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical/horizontal Scroll Up/Down pad.
Screen, Graphcs and Sound
The 15-inch XGA TFT display has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It features the integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 video/graphics card (with 64 MB of shared video memory), 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro-compatible audio, and internal JBL Pro speakers.

Connectivity and Expansion Slots
The M2010US has an integrated 54g wireless LAN that's fully compatible with 802.11b/g wireless networks. The 125 HSM/SpeedBooster support will enable it to be ready for tomorrow's 125 Mbps wireless LANs. You get a basic offering of connectivity options, which does include super-fast USB 2.0 and Firewire:

  • 2 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • 1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
  • 1 VGA monitor port
  • 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II, 32-bit)
  • 1 headphone jack and 1 microphone jack
It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).

Preloaded System and Software
This system comes with the Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 operating system with Advanced Security Technologies, which helps to reduce unwanted downloads and pop-ups while surfing the Web. It also comes preloaded with Microsoft Works (for working with word processing and spreadsheet documents), Norton Internet Security 2005 (with 60 days of complimentary updates), Microsoft Money 2005, Sonic RecordNow, Apple iTunes, Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition, Intervideo WinDVD, MuVee Autoproducer, and MSN Encarta Plus.

Dimensions and Weight
This notebook measures 13.15 x 10.8 x 1.78 inches and weighs 6.27 pounds.

Power
It's powered by a 6-cell rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which has a battery life of up to 3 hours (depending on usage).

What's in the Box
This package contains the M2010US notebook PC, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, AC adapter, and operating instructions. It is backed by a one-year limiited hardware warranty and 30-day free software support. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars HP makes bad products
HP products are horrible. After about 2 months since purchasing the laptop, something broke and I couldn't use it without the battery in it. So the battery was depleted quickly. Then the power connector on the back went loose, so I had to put up with constant interruptions because I had to always jiggle the power connector in the back for the power to get back on. After a while nothing was working. So I sent it for repair just before the warranty expired. They sent it back and they didn't do anything to fix it. I called customer service again and they told me to send it back. I also purchase a new extended warranty to keep them working on it. I wasted about a month on their incompetence and deception before they called me and said I have to pay for the motherboard because the motherboard is not under warranty. That was the first time I ever heard this. So now I am trying to get the money back for the extended warranty I paid for nothing. Customer service wasn't rude. But the company engages in deceptive practices and makes bad products. Too bad I couldn't give a 0 star.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Laptop & You Just Can't Beat The Price!
I got this at CompUSA for 500+tax AR. This was bought for my parents, so the majority of the usage will be for web surfing and e-mailing. I also have a Toshiba M35 that i paid over 1800 a year or so ago, the majority of this review will be a comparison between the two, yes i know that it is unfair to put this against that other one, but i was surprised at how this laptop can hld its own. I use the benchmark portion that is in a utility program called batteryeater to give you a reference between the two.

First off, as many people will tell you, the 256MB RAM (224MB because the video takes a minimum of 32MB and can be set up to 64MB) isn't enough, the laptop has two slots for RAM (1 is already occupied by the 256MB PC2100), so it would be a good investment to purchase another 256MB stick (~$30) or a 512MB (~$50) if you plan to do more than office work. Since i had an extra 256MB stick laying around, i did not have to spend the extra money for one, so i have 480MB or system RAM on this, whereas my M35 has 512MB of RAM because it has dedicated video ram. The score where 4012 for the 2010us and 4024 for the M35

The CPU is a 1.3GHz Celeron M 350, which has its ups and down, the up is that it has 1MB of L2 cache and 400MHz FSB, which is a bit stronger than the normal Celerons. The downside is that it does not support any type of power savings features such as SpeedStep on the Centrino line of CPU from Intel. The M35 has a 1.5GHz Centrino processor. The 2010us scored a 1470 where as the M35 had 1943 for the CPU benchmark.

The batter is a 53wHr Lithium-Ion, which lasts for a little under 2hours in the benchmark, Whereas the M35 had almost 3hrs with the speedstep on.

The LCD has a resolution of 1024x768, which is the lowest resolution for a 15" LCD by today's standards, and the LCD isn't high quality, the screen is bright...but that's only if you look at it directly on, from the side, the screen becomes dim and color reproduction is inaccurate. But considering that this is again for Office-type work this not so much a problem. my M35 a ultility that turns down the brightness of the LCD based on the amount of battery left, but i think a program of such can be found on the internet, but i just want to mention that because it would help to conserve the battery.

The mouse pad is an odd dimension, it is about 1.5"H x 3"W, which is a little short and wide compared to other laptops, it is made by synaptics, which makes touchpads for like 95% of the laptops out there. The one thing i didn't like is this mouse, the buttons are very slender and flushed with the palm rest and doesn't have a textured surface, so with my medium sized hand, i find it a little difficult to use without looking at it and having my finder directly on it, otherwise, i would have to use more pressure than on any other laptops because my thumb is about twice the width of the button.

Another thing that i would like to mention is that he power cord connection to the laptop seems very "fragile" it is thin and plugs into the left side, what makes is fragile is the fact that is plugs in perpendicular to the side so if you had this on your lap, and it happened to slip on the left side, i think there is a good chance that the plug would break. If it had a 90 degree plug, it would be a little better, a thicker plug, or having plugging into the back would help even more.

The hard drive is a 40GB @ 4200rpm, which is more than enough for office works, and some music and videos. The included DVD-Rom/CDRW drive is very nice addition on a budget laptop such as this, it doesn't come with a floppy drive, but all laptops today do not either. It scored a 2207 on the HDD bench, versus 3156 for the M35 which has a 60GB 5400RPM.

It has JBL pro speakers, which is better than most laptops i have used over the year and pretty much surpasses most of Dells laptop speakers. And it is placed on the front, facing you, so the sound is not pointed way out in space with some laptops. Though it is good, it cannot compare to the Harman/Kardon speakers on the M35.

This laptop has the intel extreme graphics2, with 32MB (can go upto 64MB) of ram, whereas the M35 has a 32MB GForceGo, so in the bench this only scored a 1912 whereas the M35 scored a 3441.

It does have 10/100 LAN as well as 54G wireless and 56K modem, 2 USB2.0 ports and a firewire port. These are all very nice addition with a budgets laptop such as this, the wireless get excellent reception from my wireless router, and is better than the intel 2200G that is on the Toshiba M35.

All in all, I think this is the best bang for the buck anyone can buy if you can get it for the 500 price, there just isn't anything else out there that I am aware of that can match this laptop in terms of features and price. But even at 700, it is still a very very good buy.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Very good Budget PC
I received my computer yesterday and it was a pleasant surprise for me to open the box and take it out. Before ordering this one, I personally did not like the appearance of non-widescreen computers but this computer changed my view.

256MB RAM is a bit less and with shared video memory, XP crawls on this. Adding extra RAM is highly recommended, which I did by adding 512 module separately. After this small modification, this computer works wonderfully.

Beware of one small feature of HP's default system settings while you install the drivers. They set Clear type setting for smooth screen fonts, which make them blurred (display settings->Advanced->Effects). It took a while for me to figure that out.

In Summary, VERY happy with this purchase. Could not have expected more from a computer of this price (got it for $499.99AR from CUSA)!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Bang for the Buck
I got this for $599 on sale and after a rebate at Staples. It is what it is: An economy laptop with some unexpected bells and whistles.

The built in wireless internet is wonderful. The sound is terrific for a laptop. The screen is a nice size and produces a nice picture. I love having a burner and a dvd. It comes with the usual software that most preconfigured laptops come with. Has ilink/firewire hick is nice for us iPod users.

Negatives....not much to mention. I'm going to upgrade the Ram because 256 doesn't cut it nowadays. I'd like more than 2 usb ports.

If you're a gamer, buy an Alienware laptop for 4 times the price.This laptop should be more than enough for most people. The price is fantastic for a laptop that is a little more than basic. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Which is the ultimate version?
If this is the "penultimate" (second to last), then what is the newest version? Is 2005 out yet? If not, then 2003 is the ultimate version, and 2002 is the penultimate.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Much of An Upgrade from VS 2002
Microsoft has released another version of its penultimate Integrated Development Environment.Forgive me if I am not as excited as I was for 2002.I love Visual Studio and I love .NET, but there just isn't enough "new" in 2003 to warrant spending money on a new Visual Studio.

With VS 2005 coming out next year, if you are already using VS 2002, just wait for 2005.If you're still in the pre-.NET days (e.g. VS 6), spend the time better training and preparing yourself for the upgrade. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Bad boy back up device, for a price
Here is a review of the 200 gb drive

go to digitalvideoediting.com to see there review

------------------------------------
Enter the OneTouch II from Maxtor, which ships complete with software that's been upgraded to Danz Retrospect Express HD. It's a great improvement, and much more sophisticated than the earlier version. Like the earlier Retrospect Express software, you can automatically back up your files every night, but now the software can create restore points similar to Windows System Restore, allowing you to fully restore your entire drive choosing from whichever date you would like. The software continues backing up versions and showing you their restore dates until the entire drive is full. Of course, you can restore individual files as well, and if you want, you can still back up your system the way the previous software did where it makes an exact duplicate of your hard drive without compressing anything. That's versatile. I was impressed with this new software, and began using it every night soon after I installed it. If you'd rather do it yourself, you can use the much-touted OneTouch system, where all you have to do is push one button and it backs up everything you specify. Another great attribute of this one-button feature is the ability to set it so that any other software backup package of your choice is launched when you push the OneTouch button.
---------------------

They point out that the firewire transfer speeds are slow, just and FYI.also the software is much improved over version 1 one touch drives.

Have fun and get it done ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
Attempted to upgrade from 97 to 2003... bad move... none of my access 97 programs work now... in fact I, I brought home a 2003 access database from work to see if it was an incampatibility problem between the two versions... nope... the upgrade just didn't work.....had to purchase a full version to set things right... save your money on this product...

1-0 out of 5 stars Keep Access 2000
This software is not worth upgrading.I think Access 2000 is the best database and 2002 is good if you want to use Data Access Pages.Access 2003 has a lot of bugs.I'm having trouble with basic formulas.This is very frustrating.

Be careful, especially if you don't have time to trouble shoot software changes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Re : Internet Activation Policy
To the previous reviewer regarding Internet Activation Policy.
I can tell you that I recently purchased Office 2003 Pro, and I was allowed to activate the product twice.It is stated in the licensing policy that the product may be installed once on a permanent computer, and once more on a portable computer (ie: notebook, tablet etc.).This is exactly what I did.If the second computer was not portable, I don't think they would know this, and therefore you could actually install twice.

Hope this helps.

3-0 out of 5 stars Internet Activation License policy?
Does this product only work on the first computer you install it on because of internet activation like the Access 2002 upgrade did? I have 2 computers at home and one is a test PC that gets reimaged a lot. I need my software installed on both and I don't like Internet activation that Microsoft had on Access 2002.

If they have it I won't buy so please post a review and let me know. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Blending affordability with productivity power, the HP Pavilion dv4030us notebook PC is a great choice for both business road warriors and multimedia enthusiasts on the go. The 15.4-inch BrightView display looks good even in direct sunlight, and movies and games will look clear thanks to the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (with 128 MB of shared memory). And you'll stay productive with the battery-sipping 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium M (Centrino) processor. This notebook also features a 100 GB hard drive, 512 MB of installed RAM, built-in 54g wireless connectivity, dual layer DVD+/-RW drive, and multiformat memory card reader. For a step up in price, the DV4040US offers a faster Pentium M processor and 1 GB of installed RAM.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: The 100 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is above average in size, and is befitting of such an entertainment-centric laptop. You'll be able to store a hefty digital audio library.
  • Processor: The 1.6 GHz Pentium M (Centrino) Processor 730 is at the lower end of the speed spectrum for this processor class (March, 2005). It is well equipped for office productivity software tasks, from complex spreadsheets to databases. The Pentium M processor is designed specifically for low-power mobile usage, and it features the latest in power-saving technologies--ensuring you push your battery and productivity to the max. It also has a large 2 MB L2 cache--which will help speed up your system's performance--and a 533 MHz front-side bus (FSB).
  • Memory: The 512 MB of installed RAM is a good start, but you'll want to take advantage of the roomy 2 GB of total RAM capacity (2 x 1 GB)for such multimedia needs as video editing and immersive 3D gaming.
  • CD/DVD Drive: Offering the latest in DVD writing technology, the dv4030us multiformat DVD/CD drive is compatible with both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer DVD+R discs, which can store up to 8.5 GB of data.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a 101-key keyboard and a touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical/horizontal Scroll Up/Down pad.
Screen, Graphcs and Sound
The high-definition 15.4-inch WXGA BrightView widescreen display--with 1280 x 800-pixel resolution--has 30 percent more screen information than a 15-inch XGA, providing visibility of two applications side by side for greater productivity and multi-tasking. The BrightView feature provides a 20 percent brighter screen for better definition and 33 percent wider viewing angle for more accurate, off-center viewing when sharing files files. Video and graphics are powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, which provides 128 MB of shared video memory. It also has HP Premium audio and internal stereo speakers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beware, you need Word 2003 for it to work
I ordered the 2003 Proofing Tools on the 18th, free shipping.On the 19th I decided I needed it ASAP (and I couldn't update my Amazon order) but it didn't ship until the 22nd.It arrived on the 27th (on schedule) and I found it doesn't work with Word 2002.
So, I tried to order the upgrade to Word for 2003 and may have found someone that wasn't sold out after the third try.(Overnite delivery)I can not find the proofing tool for Word 2002, so this has cost me close to $200 so far.
I still haven't used the product, but the experience has given me a great headache. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best notebook out, period.
Unless you're a 100 pound weakling, stop complaining about the weight of this notebook and get it. This is the top of the line PowerBook. I was considering the 15inch since I heard the other complaints about the weight and portability of the 17" but went with my own judegement and got the 17". I'm very happy with my decision and purchase. The RAM was upgraded 2GB on my system (which is the maximum). This system outperforms my previous ThinkPad which had a similar specs. The OS is rock solid (Tiger 10.4). Essentials to have WHEN you get this are a great case (I'd recommend Timbuk2 Commute XL), Office 20004 for the Mac, Quicken 2004 for the Mac and if you're into games, Doom 3 for the Mac. My future purchases to complement this system will be the iSight and Airport Express.

If you've been considering this system for a while, take the plunge. You won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best value
There are, quite literally, thousands of notebooks in the market today, ranging from $500 to $3000+ in price. If you're looking through the reviews of the magnificent $2700 17-inch Powerbook, you might be wondering if the price, the upfront cost of a Macintosh, is justifiable given that one can easily purchase 5 of the $500 notebooks. I looked around myself, but it came down to these:

1. The big screen. Most 17-inch Windows notebooks try to be media centers, and they weigh a ton. This Powerbook is barely more than an inch thick.

2. Size. I don't have big hands, but I do like a comfortable writing space. The keyboard has a nice tactile feel, it's backlit in dim lighting conditions.

3. Quietness. There is hardly a sound from the computer, and unless I'm doing processor-intensive work (like watching Quicktime HD sample movies), the fan is never on. It lets me focus on my work, rather than get distracted and annoyed at the grinding noise from the fan and hard drive.

4. Ease of use. All the necessary plugs (USB, firewire, etc) are present. More importantly, OS X (I'm using 10.4) with the included iLife '05 productivity software is easy to learn, and based on my experience from Windows PCs, makes me more productive quickly.

5. Software. The OS and the bundled software (I mentioned them above) don't intrude, requiring constant attention and drivers to install when I plug in a camera for the first time. They get out of my way, and they let me produce results. It took me 30 mins to import photos, edit them, and make a DVD catalog (browseable in Safari) AND make a quicktime movie of a slideshow. I was never able to do this on my old Windows PC (3.4GHz P4).

6. Value. Macs have generally higher resale value than other PCs. It's one company, versus hundreds of companies making, generally, the same computer, and so they gravitate towards pricing as the differentiator. I sold my 6-month-old 14-inch iBook G4 at 80% of the original price I paid. That's hard to do with any other PC or notebook.

And we come to price. At $2700, it is expensive, there is no getting around it. But when I compared to a comparable Dell 17-inch notebook (very nice, I must add), and added hardware and software features, resale value, plus considering ease of use and increased productivity, the $2700 in price is a bargain. Consider with a grain of salt, make your own comparisons and judgements.

5-0 out of 5 stars You Don't Need a Desktop Machine Anymore
I have a friend of a friend who works at an Apple store and just recenlty he let me play with all the new stuff, some old stuff too and here is my impression of the new, improved 17 inch PowerBook. First off, and I feel like shouting this, but I won't, "It's about time Apple put out a computer that had enough memory in it to actually run it!" I have an old G3, 14 inch iBook and right off the bat I had to buy more memory, bumping it up to 640 megs, so knowing this baby comes with 512 right out the door, will bring a sigh of relief to anybody thinking of buying one.

The screen on this baby is gorgeous and really, really huge, stunning, no reading glasses for me here. This machine is svelte and sleek, but a bit to big to be taken on the road in my opinion. It comes with Airport Extreme built in. Has all the usual ports, plus FireWire 800 and it's crowning jewel, in my humble opinion, is the backlit keyboard. Apple claims it's ten times brighter than the old model. I can attest to the fact that it's brighter, but ten times, I don't know, I didn't see it. However, it's plenty bright enough to work in the dark. This 1.67 GHz model comes with a Superdrive and a scrolling trackpad (which I didn't mention in my other reviews). I found the trackpad scrolling business to be a little annoying, but no matter you can turn it off in System Prefs if you want. However, I imagine once you get used to it, one might find it darned handy.

In a way this baby is like having two computers in one, because you won't need a desktop anymore, not with all this screen real estate. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Apple really got it right this time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Portability not such an issue
First of all, let me state that while I have used this machine, I am the current owner of an older model - the first generation 17" with a 1GHz processor and a 60GB hard drive.

One of the biggest questions I always hear is "Isn't that too big to carry around?" My answer is no. I carry it for a 20 minute walk to my college campus daily and have no problems with it. I keep it in a Brenthaven bag specifically designed for it, and while it is a little unwieldy, it took me very little time to get used to it. The weight is definitely not an issue. For anyone thinking about getting this, I would weigh any bag that you carry with you on a day to day basis - seven pounds really isn't so much to deal with.

I use my Powerbook as my primary machine. At any given time, I am usually running Adobe Photoshop and/or Illustrator, Macromedia Flash, as well as a few native applications (Mail and iCal are always open, usually iTunes as well). The programs that come with the computer are well integrated into the operating system. I use mine for about 15 hours a day, and I put it to sleep rather than shutting it down. Even with all of the work that I do on it, a year and a half after purchasing my model it still stays on for two to three weeks with no need to shut it down.

The backlit keyboard is a feature that I never thought I would need, but now that I have it I'm not sure how I ever lived without it. Light sensors automatically adjust your screen brightness and keyboard lighting, although these can be adjusted manually. It makes working a breeze. Even though I don't look at the keyboard very much when I'm typing, it's nice to be able to see when I need to use keys I don't access very often (function keys, etc.). Since the keyboard lighting controls take up extra function keys, the "one-key" Expose features in OSX require one more step with pressing function before hitting F9-F11, but if it poses a real problem you can always set screen corners or change the hot key.

My biggest issue with this computer is the battery life. With the brightness turned all the way down (which can make the screen very difficult to see depending on your lighting conditions) and AirPort turned off, it can get around 3.5-4 hours of battery life. If you need full brightness and a wireless internet connection, you're realistically looking at about 2-2.5 hours of battery life.

Overall, I am a large supporter of this computer. I would recommend it to anyone that has a need for a Macintosh with maximum screen size and portability.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best PowerBook Yet
Apple's latest update to their aluminum PowerBook series warrants a close look by current PowerBook users and anyone on the fence. The 17" screen is stunning, even keeping in mind that other makers have copied the idea (Apple's overall presentation simply outclasses the copycats' efforts), and the design and construction are first class.
I purchased the new 17" PowerBook to replace the previous 15" model. The increase in processor speed is noticeable, and I love the new trackpad which incorporates vertical and horizontal scrolling simply by touching the pad with two fingers instead of one. It is immediately easy to use--no extra buttons to manipulate or odd procedures to learn. The screen seems brighter than the previous one, and the new keyboard backlighting is beautiful.
I also like the fact that, besides increasing the base amount of memory, Apple now ships the machines with one memory slot open. That is, a standard 512MB machine has one 512MB strip on board, with one slot open. I simply took the "extra" 512MB strip out of my previous machine and put it in the new one, giving me a full 1GB of memory (upgradable to 2GB for those planning missions beyond the galaxy or whatever).
Buyers of the new 17" PowerBook should also check out the Apple/Brenthaven shoulder bag and backpack. I opted for the backpack this time. It is beautifully crafted; easily worth the slight additional cost over the standard fare, especially since the computer sleeve is made specifically for this computer.
In sum, this is not an "intermediate" tweak; it is a serious upgrade of an already-great product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product for the money - best in class
I picked up this unit for my laptop when I got a bluetooth phone.My goal was to use bluetooth and Activesync to keep my contacts updated on my MPX220.Getting this to work took quite a bit of playing around with the settings, COM ports, etc.. but I finally got it to work.I checked with other people's experiences and it seems like this is the best product for XP users since the XP drivers are included with the unit.The other products (3com, Belkin, etc) had lots of problems.The XP drivers for Belkin are particularly bad.

The other benefit of this card is its low profile when using with a laptop.The retractable antenna & LED stick out about 1/4 inch from my IBM Thinkpad laptop.BTW, I never had to actually pull the retractable antenna out to get signal.It works fine in the embedded position.This was a key point for me since I didnt want to have to plug/unplug a dongle into my laptop every time I move it.I simply slip the laptop into its case with the PCMCIA card embedded in it.Hope this review helps you out.If you have any questions, check the message boards at howardforums or post a question with your review here.I'll do the best I can to help out. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Would be Excellent if it had memory expansion
I'm using this product since a month, and it works really fine. It comes with a belt clip and earbuds. The battery life for the TX models are pretty good (>10hrs), and the output quality is also good. I'm using it to record the lectures, but if you want to get a good quality go for a voice recorder only device, still it performs well. You can add files, mp3's WMA's and record sound on the same device and it will work without any problem, The screen is so small but still readable, and the blue backlit LCD is really good. you can resume the song that you are listening after power off and on again, and have several options for shuffle play(folder, all, repeat folder, repeat all).
Pros: Reversible LCD Menus, Blue Backlit LCD, USB Stick(no need for extra cable), Voice recording capability, Jog Dial button for easy skip, and navigation in menus.
Cons: Not expandable, Voice recoring quality might be better.

4-0 out of 5 stars great little player
I've had this mp3 player for a few months now, and I am extremely happy with it.

Pros:
- Very small and lightweight
- No cables or software necessary
- Easy to load; you just drag and drop
- Easy menu navigation with intuitive GUI
- Has all the necessary features (random, repeat, set it to skip certain folders, etc)
- Doubles as a flash drive
- Arm strap and/or belt clip are great when you're on the move

Cons:
- Wide design is hard to get into the USB port on my HP at work (fits perfectly fine in my Dell at home)

Overall it is a wonderful product and I am very happy with my purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Creative Labs Muvo TX 256 MB MP3 Player
This is a brilliant worck of machinary, and anyone who could afford to buy this peice of equipment is very lucky, and should use ot to its highest extent.
Also, don't pollute the earth, recycle and you may save our planet.

5-0 out of 5 stars AAA Battery, EXCELLENT!!!!
What makes this player so great is what it DOESN'T come with. No charger, no cradle, no special cables, just one AAA battery and you're good to go. That means if you are carrying this with you a lot, and you run out of power, all you have to find is another AAA battery and you are running again.

Also, there is no special software, I just plugged it in to my PC, and it was recognized as a removable drive, then it was all drag and drop. I can even put folders of songs on it to make collections of music.

Every other player I've looked at requires some special lithium battery, or charger stand to work, I am amazed that someone finally designed a player that is so simple, and works so well. If it were possible to give this 6 stars, I would!

4-0 out of 5 stars I've bought others as gifts
Super easy, takes 4 - 5 standard CDs. Love the drag and drop and how it is essentially a memory stick that plays music files.
Cons: kind of wanky menu system but easy after a bit. The alphabetical ordering of song play is bothersome but there are ways around that too. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Fulfill all your digital needs without breaking the bank with the HP Pavilion ZE2015US notebook PC, perfect for students, home office professionals, and families on the go. It features a large 15-inch display, which can easily tackle both spreadsheets and DVD movies, and a built-in 54g wireless connectivity. This notbook weighs just over 6 pounds and also offers a battery-friendly Intel Celeron M processor (helping to provide a battery life of up to three hours), a 60 GB hard drive, 512 MB of installed RAM, and a combo DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: The 60 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is becoming the average size for notebook PCs, providing enough capacity for storing documents, digital media files, and productivity software.
  • Processor: The Intel Celeron M processor is designed specifically for mobile computing, offering a balanced level of mobile-optimized processor technology, good mobile performance, and exceptional value. The 1.3 GHz speed resides in the middle of the spectrum for this processor (as of March, 2005). It also features a 400 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and large 1 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)
  • Memory: The 512 MB of built-in memory (2 x 256 MB, DDR SDRAM, 266 MHz) is a good start for power users. It has two memory slots in total, with a maximum memory expansion up to 1 GB (2 x 512 MB), which is limited compared to more powerful notbooks, but keeps this in line with other budget notebooks.
  • CD/DVD Drive: This notebook includes a combo DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, with 24x write/read and 10x rewrite speed for CDs and 8x read speed for DVDs.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a 101-key keyboard and a touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical/horizontal Scroll Up/Down pad.
Screen, Graphcs and Sound
While this notebook is actually as wide as standard 15-inch displays, the high-definition, widescreen 14-inch display (1280 x 768-pixel resolution) has the same form factor as a 12-inch screen--taking up less space on your desk. Even more impressive, its high resolution provides 25 percent more information than standard 15-inch XGA displays. This BrightView screen also provides a 20 percent brighter screen for better definition and 33 percent wider viewing angle for more accurate, off-center viewing. Video is powered by the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 video card with 64 MB of shared video memory. It also features 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro-compatible audio and internal Harman Kardon speakers.

Connectivity and Expansion Slots
The ZE2015US has an integrated 54g wireless LAN that's fully compatible with 802.11b/g wireless networks. You get a basic offering of connectivity options, which does include super-fast USB 2.0 and Firewire:

  • 2 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • 1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
  • 1 VGA monitor port
  • 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II, 32-bit)
  • 1 headphone jack and 1 microphone jack
  • 1 notebook expansion port

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy to have waited for this one!!!!
Wanted to buy a new Cam at the first of the year but waited on the newer models to arrive. I was looking at Canon's Z300, Sony's HC32, and JVC's 295. I think each has it strong points but in the end it was JVC's zoom, extra battery, great night vison, and crystal clear quality that lead me here. I love this thing. No problems xfering to pc using firewire. Battery life is above average at 1:39... Usable also as a Web Cam..(great quality) All this for $378....cheaper than z300 at $419 and Sony HC32 at $450 ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Glad I got this bag.
After much research...I got this bag.

Pros:
Reasonably light (3 pounds empty I think).
Reasonably sized (not as slim as my old bag...which hadno padding)
Has a removable Accessory bag for my mouse and power supply (pretty spacious!).This was THE feature I wanted.
Lots of pockets/places to store things, lots of room for documents, pens, accessories.
Suprisingly easy to carry, either by handle or strap...Oddly more so than my unpadded older case.I guess it might be the padded handle and padded sides.It's comfortable to carry around.

Cons:
No dedicated "slots" to hold my 802.11g card, I stick it in one of the secured pockets.No big deal especially since My new laptop will have built in wireless.
No space to hold a large (I mean large) book, normal books should fit easily (a bunch of them actually).
I don't use or carry CD Disks with me, so that feature is pretty useless..but I guess nice to have. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Makes a difficult process easy
I know nothing about web design, and don't really want to do it myself.But, I was interested in being able to update one particular page, created by a professional, on my own, and save myself some $$ in the process. I tried two other programs, and got nowhere with them. Contribute 3 was my third attempt, and made it possible to make the modifications with virtually no hassle.My first updates were accomplished in about 5 minutes, and my subsequent ones have taken perhaps 30 seconds.

I have not explored all the bells and whistles of the program yet. But, at least for my simple needs the program works very well, and is easy to use. For that I'm thankful and grateful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
Contribute works great for allowing non-web people to edit their web sites. Highly recommended. Works best in tandem with Dreamweaver and in particular sites set up using the Dreamweaver Template system.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good at what it is ment for
I have a hard time recommending or discouraging buying Contribute without explaining what it is both good and bad at.

To start with, this is NOT a program for building web pages from scratch.If you need to truly build a web page, use Dreamweaver MX.On the other hand, if you want to maintain a pre-built site or make a site out of the many professionally designed templates provided, Contribute is an excellent tool.

I purchased Contribute when I was contracted by a local company to build a web page and give them the ability to perform daily updates without deep technical skills.I had originally planned to build and deploy the site with Contribute to ensure that the owners of the site would have no difficulties in the future.I quickly ran into the many limitations of Contribute.

First off, the actual HTML is completely hidden.There is no way to directly edit the code from within Contribute.You can use an external editor but there is no way to see your changes live without going though a save, exit external editing, look, return to external editing sequence.While I consider this an omission, this is a feature for most of Contributes target audience because it's easy to really mess things up in HTML if you don't know what you are doing.

The second omission can only be described as a flaw.Within the design portion, there is no way to perform a "Save As" of your page.Once you have made changes to a page you have only two options - Publish and Save as Draft.Publish overwrites the previous version and Save as Draft prevents changes to the page until the draft is published.The end result is that you cannot make multiple copies of a page to use as a template, you can't test how something works without being destructive and you can't save older versions for historical purposes. This flaw is compounded by Contribute saving your files under a series of folders with a naming convention understood only by the creators of the program.These flaws alone prevent me from giving Contribute more than 3 stars.

On the positive side, Contribute has some very powerful tools that are implemented in a very novice friendly way.Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), JavaScript additions, eBay site building, Google Search and PayPal payment boxes are a mouse click away.The Windows version includes a powerful FlashPaper2 utility that makes documents web friendly and the Mac version is tightly integrated with Apples .Mac service.

Where Contribute really shines is in editing an existing site that has a full administrator using Dreamweaver.The Publish and Draft functions are tied into Administrator, Publisher and Editor roles to ensure that what is on a site is what should be there.For an office that has many parts that need to add to a site, Contribute is ideal.For a small company wanting to get on the web fast or an eBay seller wanting to go beyond the default, Contribute is more than enough.Beyond that, move up to Dreamweaver.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bugs and blind side streets galore...
This program worked fine for several dozen megabytes then currupt files in preferences brought the whole edifice down, wasting weeks of work. Error reports and diagnostic screens are poor and illogical. Support is coy and irratic. There are many Beta releases with fewer problems. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Unit does not work with IPSEC VPN
Unit is dropping IPSEC incoming packets from my company's VPN server. VPN connectivity works if I remove the router. Linksys Technical Support although friendly is reading from a script. After 2 nights of agonizing experimentation, Technical Support suggested that I return the unit.

3-0 out of 5 stars WRT55AG V2 - Released Before Firmware Was Ready
I selected the WRT55AG so that I could use a 2.4 Ghz cordless phone for meetings while connected to work through a VPN tunnel on the 5 Ghz "A" network.Based on my previous positive experience with a Linksys 802.11B Wireless DSL Router, I chose this product hoping for similar ease of use and reliability.I was very disappointed.

When I initially attempted to set up the device, I had to use Linksys' setup utility.The utility started and asked for some basic info but would never actually "save" the info provided, and would not proceed from step to step.The utility complained that it could not connect to the Internet. Considering that it failed to ask me for my PPPoE username and password before displaying this message, this seemed to be a logical outcome (Duh!).After abandoning the setup utility, I tried to set up the router through the web interface - no luck - an unending series of JavaScript errors that apparently prevented any data from being saved to the router (sound familiar?).

This, after 2 hours, brought me to my first contact with Linksys technical support.My hold time was short, perhaps 5 minutes, and I spoke to a first level support person who was quite obviously reading from a script.She had me re-flash the firmware (version 1.10 form their web site).Even though I had already done this I obliged.When this produced no improvement, she had me download another (new) utility from the Linksys web site that would automate the setup.This also failed to configure the router.After 15 minutes she provided me with a case number and a direct number for second level support.

Again, my hold time was less than 5 minutes and I was speaking to a very articulate and quite competent support person.He ran through a well-ordered series of troubleshooting steps that I did not perceive to be scripted (he adapted quickly and correctly when we continued to receive no joy.Aside from requesting that I re-flash (again), this experience was quite positive.We ended up using Fire Fox on my laptop to connect and configure the router - I had been trying to use Internet Explorer on my desktop.He indicated that there was a problem with my Java Virtual Machine in IE that had caused the issue.This turned out later to be incorrect - with the latest firmware installed (version 1.40 - more on this later) Internet Explorer worked fine from the desktop system.

Now that I could actually configure this beast I bid Tech support a grateful farewell and started setting up the nitty-gritty configuration details within the router.All was going well until I set WPA-PSK (TKIP) security on both the "A" and "G" channel.The router reboots itself after each configuration change so as to pick up the new setting.Once both channels were locked down to what I consider the absolute minimum security setting for a wireless home network the router would continually reboot and never recover.I had to "hard" reboot the router using the factory default push button on the back.This, of course, reset every setting I had successfully saved up to that point.I confirmed the endless reboot scenario a couple of times more before calling tech support back.

My third call connected me with another second level operative who also wanted me to re-flash the router (I refused).He had me verify normal behavior when both "A" and "G" networks were configured for 128 bit WEP.This worked but as soon and both networks were set to WPA-PSK the reboot problem returned.He put me on hold for a few minutes so he could confer with someone else.When he returned he indicated that the "latest firmware" would fix this issue.I commented that I had the latest firmware (version 1.10) available on their web site (and had already installed it 3 times).He responded that version 1.40 was a beta version that had not yet been released but that he would send it to me via email within 60 minutes.I hung up and waited - 90 minutes later (I can forgive that) it arrived and I re-flashed the router again.Lo and behold (almost) everything started to work.WPA-PSK no longer sent the router chasing its tail - I still have an issue with MAC address filtering not always working but I consider that a minor issue as it does not buy much in terms of security if a determined cracker tries to infiltrate your wireless network.

At this point I have a few days left before the "drop dead" date for returning the router to Staples (excellent prices and return policy).I haven't decided whether I'll keep it yet.What I have decided is that Linksys released this product under one of the two following scenarios:

1. They did not adequately test the version 1.10 firmware and did not detect the WPA-PSK issue before releasing the product.If this is the case it reveals a lack of sound software development, test and release processes.
2. They tested and found the issue and decided to release the product anyway.I hope this is not the case as this would be inexcusable.

I am also troubled by the fact that version 1.10 of the firmware is still (25 May 2005) the ONLY publicly available firmware revision - it is dated September of 2004.Version 1.40 appears nowhere on their support site.Why is it that a problem of this magnitude, especially one concerning the ability to properly secure the router, has still not been addressed with a publicly available update?I may keep this router but I would NOT recommend it to someone else.If you don't need 802.11a get a WRT54Gx instead.At least that way you can use the publicly available (free) independent firmware that adds additional features and is constantly updated.

1-0 out of 5 stars We also sent ours back
I have a cable modem going to a Linksys router (not wireless) that then goes to 4 computers in my home network.The wired Linksys router has been working for years with no problems.

Then we decided to go wireless becasue we now have a laptop with a built in wireless network connection.So I pulled out my wired router and installed this wireless router plus access point.It was nothing but trouble.Not only did the wireless connection keep going up and down.But the hard wired computers also started lossing network connectivity.

After several days of setup attempts we brought it back to the store where we bought it and asked for our money back.I put the original wired router back and was up and running in minutes.If you already have a router I think a Linksys access point may be ok.But the access point/router combination didn't work for us at all.

1-0 out of 5 stars RIP
Purchased for the 'A' band/AES and Linksys' logging capabilities.Configured and successfully set up quickly.Range was good and, in reality, had no problems.The configuration/setup options are a disappointing barebones in comparison to previous Linksys routers owned.Disappointed in logging capabilities and that there appeared to be no way to configure it to allow multiple VPN sessions to work.Other then that, it's performed well.Up to yesterday when it went belly up - not even 3 months old.I've had prob's w/Linksys quality in the past and thought they mighta got their act together w/Cisco.But, I guess not.It'll be a 'cold day' before I will again purchase a Linksys product...

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid the wrt55ag at ALL COSTS
This item is NOT ready. It dumps connection every 4-6 hours, sometimes requireing a cold boot. Tried beta firmware, was even worse.. Get a d-link, buffalo, whatever, avoid this router/wireless access like the plague. ... Read more
