Tekzilla Weekly: Gateway's iMac-like PC, Maker Faire, HDTV on a budget, NAS vs. Drobo Video
As a storage device, the Drobo Mini makes no financial sense.
The new Drobo looks and functions the same as the original Drobo that came out a year ago with a few major improvements, including FireWire support, a faster processor, and better ventilation.
A standout among budget midsize laptops, the 14.1-inch Gateway T-6836 marries strong performance and battery life with a compact, well-designed case.
Adequate for general productivity use, the Gateway FPD1960 comes up short next to 19-inch LCDs that offer more features and better image quality.
The Mitsubishi WD-65833 is a huge 65-inch 1080P rear-projection HDTV.
This Gateway all-in-one has a touch screen, but that might be the least interesting thing about it. With a 23-inch display, a Blu-ray drive, and competitive performance, the ZX6900-01e offers an impressively capable system for under $1,000.
The budget-priced 15-inch Gateway NV55S05u laptop, with its AMD A8 processor, is hard to beat--provided you can live with an unimpressive battery life.
Veronica has the secret to better task switching in this episode of Tekzilla Daily.
The Gateway M520X Plus lacks flash but offers good performance and features for a fair price.
It's iPad mania this week as Donald and Jasmine dissect every inch of Donald's 5,000-word iPad review. Well, not really. But we do spend an awful lot of time discussing the recently-released entertainment device.

Sadly, Stoic Balloon Man was not able to join us this week due to death by deflation.
