|Bottom line|| |
The Apple iPad is the first affordable tablet computer worth owning, but it won't (yet) replace your laptop.
The Zune HD delivers one of the best portable music and video experiences money can buy. At a time when many people have shifted their focus to games and applications, providing a killer media experience may not be enough for potential Zune buyers.
The Archos 5 is a great video player, but it disappoints as a premium Android Internet tablet and GPS unit.
The iPod Classic refines the formula that put the iPod on the map. None can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life, and intuitive user interface.
