Sub-5-pound laptop offers top speed and dual pointing devices.

The Omnibook 900 will please well-heeled executives willing to pay a premium for a notebook under 5 pounds.

Consumer review by:

Good but with strange default settings.

 

The default settings make very strong coffee. When I set it to make 12 cups and to grind beans for 12, the coffee came out so strong that I couldn\'t drink it. And I was horrified to see so many of my expensive beans disappearing. I now put water for...

my new alarm

 

Hard to add water if its under cabinets. Overall i like it. Hard to change types of coffee. I like decaf in the afternoon. Maybe ill get another bean container;

Delivered on all the promises

 

We had the original version of the grind and brew series. This is much easier to clean, less to clean on a daily basis, and produces a far better cup of coffee due to the burr grinder. The bean holder eliminates the tedious process of measuring out the...

My 2nd XBR

 

This tv is exactly what I expected and is why I bought it. My other Sony LCD XBR has been fantastic and I was eager to see what Sony could do with 3D. It is amazing. Whether I am watching regular tv or 3D, I am thrilled with everything about this...

Everything, so far

Shipping from Sony was terrible

Consumer review by:

Best 3D TV period....

 

Ordered the XBR-60Lx900 a week before Thanksgiving, arrived after I returned to the Mainland, set it up on Christmas day.

Picture quality on Blu Ray disk, like looking out a very clean window, HD cable channels not quite as good ;

Picture quality on standard Cable channels, as expected, painful to watch but can be tolerated if the only contentoption ;

Cuisinart Burr Grind & Brew

 

We had excellent coffee for 2 days using the grind option but then the grinder clogged and we had to bypass that and use with the grinder off. I called Cuisinart this morning and they informed me that darker beans are more oily and clog more easily. I...

Product Specifications

For the most part, as a mobile professional who uses a notebook PC, you've had to make a choice. Either you went with a lightweight notebook PC for mobility-and compromised on performance. Or you chose a performance PC-and suffered on those long marches to the airline gate. Now, Hewlett-Packard has introduced a notebook PC that combines the performance you need to run virtually any application with the portability you need to take your show on the road. In fact, the HP OmniBook 900 notebook PC is so powerful and full-featured, it's destined to become your sole computer. The HP OmniBook 900 notebook PC has plenty of power for your most demanding applications and presentations. It offers your choice of 366- or 300PE-MHz Intel Mobile Pentium II processors; a 256-Kbyte on-board L2 cache; 32 Mbytes of SDRAM, expandable to 160 Mbytes; a 6.4- or 4.3-billion-byte hard drive; and dual pointing devices. Its wide assortment of accessories-including multiple docking options and easy-to-plug-in, optional, external hot-swappable CD-ROM, DVD, LS-120, or second hard drive modules (plus a standard external floppy disk drive)-makes this PC easy to expand and connect to your office network. If your mobile presentations depend on your PC, take this one with you. Weighing in at four pounds, it's easy to carry but still rugged and durable. With a 256-bit graphics controller; a vivid-color, 12.1-inch display; and stereo sound, the HP OmniBook 900 will bring your presentations to life. You'll also appreciate its flexible, dual-display capability, which allows you to view a different image on your LCD-such as your speaker notes-than the one you project to your audience.
