Some New Gadgets

Well things are really starting to pick up over at ThinkComputers. We are moving up to at least 5 reviews / articles a week, but I’m pushing towards new content each day. Hopefully I don’t wear myself out by trying to keep up this schedule. I always like checking out new technology that’s why I love updating ThinkComputers. Anyways here are some of the more interesting gadgets that we will be taking a look at over the next few weeks.

Lenovo ThinkPad X300

The Lenovo X300 is the business users MacBook Air. The 13.3-inch widescreen notebook is only .73″ thin and weighs in at 2.93lbs. Of course the 13.3-inch screen is LED backlit and even though it is so thin you still get an optical drive. This is an ultraportable so you get a 64GB SSD drive too! This ThinkPad is not lacking either, it has all the features you would expect from a ThinkPad, the roll cage, lithium polymer batteries, fingerprint reader, integrated EV-DO and of course the ThinkVantage suite. Starting at over $2000 it is quite expensive though!

Seagate FreeAgent Go

When I first saw this I thought, “Oh just another portable drive”. Well this is a portable drive, it is very small and it gets its power from USB so you don’t need to bring a big power adapter around with you, which makes it great for traveling. The thing is there are a ton of drives like this so what makes it so special? The thing that I really think sets the FreeAgent Go apart from other portable hard drives in the included Creedo application. It allows you to install programs directly on the drive, everything from Outlook to AIM. This is awesome because I can go onto any computer, plug my FreeAgent Go drive in and have all my programs ready to go. And since all the programs are running off the drive I don’t have to worry about any data being stored on the host PC. The FreeAgent Go comes in capacities ranging from 80-250GB. The review is alreay up on ThinkComputers, so check it out!

SilverStone Raven Gaming Mouse

SilverStone is not a copmpany known for making peripherals, they are known for making great high-end PC cases. Their home theater PC cases are very popular, I have reviewed quite a few of them. So a mouse is something new for them. They have an entire flash website made up for the mouse so it must be a big deal for them. It features a laser sensor capable of up to 3200dpi, on the fly dpi adjustment, flip 3D scroll wheel, and 5 programmable profiles. It will be interesting to see how well it works.
