The PC Club Enpower ENP660 is essentially an HP dv6500t, with different options available.  What does make it stand out is the full-size keyboard that includes a numpad.  On a 15.4" notebook, that is a rarity, but it also the only thing that really stands out on this notebook.  AnandTech spent a bit of time with this system, and you can see what they learned about it in their review.

This may seem a little blasphemous, but Tech ARP has questioned the usefulness of PDAs!  They tested a dedicated PDA against the old analog style personal organizer.  Paper versus digital meet in a battle for supremacy.  Before anyone points out that the paper organizer can't make phone calls it needs to be pointed out that the test is against a true PDA, not the multi-function PDA smart phones that have become available fairly recently.

At 8lbs, and enough high powered components to drain the battery in no time the Alienwaire Aurora m9700 notebook isn't terribly portable.  As a desktop replacement however, this notebook has more than enough power for any gamer in it's most expensive configuration.  The Tech Lounge couldn't resist picking one up to review, and you just know they didn't get the basic model.
