Dialogue FlyBook Laptop review


The Flybook is the first device which Italian-based Dialogue have launched into the UK market and from first appearances is set to cause something of a stir. The adoption of Tablet PCs hasn't been as rapid as either Microsoft or the hardware vendors...

Stylish, lightweight

Pricey, not as sleek as it seems

This Italian-launched Tablet PC has plenty of style but lacks the goods

Dialogue Flybook


The Flybook is a small, light and well connected notebook, but how does it compare to the more establised competition?

Obviously with a device this small, the keyboard is correspondingly small, so much so that many notebook users may find it difficult to cope with. Now, anyone that regularly reads my notebook reviews will be aware that I’m a big fan of thin and light...

Dialogue Flybook


I received one of these on trial, it came with the 80GB HDD, and Windows XP Pro SP2. On first appearance it is a stunning little laptop, much prettier than my Dell D810. At the end of the tests I purchased the version I had and placed an order for...

For anyone who might run across this thread, I would like to issue a strong warning to not deal with these people. I have been trying for three months to get a custom V5 put together and they have continued to lie and put me off. They took their...
