The virtual buttons in the bottom left, apps in the top right, and combination of widgets and icons in multiple screens all point to a device that trades instant accessibility for wider customisation features and increased functionality; this is something that could frustrate Xoom owners as much as please them. Longer term testing will tell.

As the first PC we've seen to run a 3.4GHz Intel 'Sandy Bridge' Core i7-2600K CPU, the CyberPower is incredibly fast. We recorded 171 points in WorldBench 6 - the best we’ve seen. It comes with a 60GB SSD and 1TB hard drive, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 24in BenQ display and an HD 6950 graphics card - we’d like to have seen a 6970. The Cooler Master Elite 310 case is unimpressive for a PC of this calibre, and external speakers aren't supplied.

With 140 points scored in WorldBench 6, Chillblast’s Fusion Corona is one of the fastest Core i5-760 PCs we’ve seen. In addition to the standard 4GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive, you get a fast Radeon HD 6850 graphics card, a 25in Hannspree full-HD monitor, an external speaker set and a Blu-ray drive. The motherboard supports both SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0. Gaming performance is good, and there’s potential to add a second graphics card.

4. Veebeam HD

We're very impressed by the Veebeam HD. Those who’ve already bought an HD TV and don’t want to start looking at Internet-Ready options or Google TV boxes will be hard pushed to find a better device for getting their content from their computer to a TV.

With low running costs, high performance and strong paper handling, the Kyocera Mita FS-1320D could be a brilliant acquisition for businesses seeking fast text output. The lack of network facilities is the only significant flaw, and even this can be fixed by paying a little more for the FS-1370DN.
