Folks at Akihabara have received the latest Panasonic Toughbook F8 Business Rugged Laptop. Although it looks nothing like what you would call slim, they have found it to be surprisingly lightweight. Currently, the SRP is between $2,099 to $2,499.
It does have some fancy, outstanding features, as you can see in the gallery below, it comes in a variety of sizes and two of the larger ones have got its DVD drive ‘built-in’ and opens like a vent, which makes me think that could be a great way to prevent it from overheating! It also has a rather awkward looking handle which allows users to carry it like a suitcase. More pictures in the gallery below…
Made for geeks, why do I say that? We all know Audi R8 is one special fast car and expensive too, but this one called the Blackbird is even more special. It’s basically a gizmo car! It’s been given four GPS units, two radar detectors, police scanner, CD radio and on board the car you can also surf the internet using WiFi through a tablet PC. Sounds alot like a get away car in police chase scenes, only thieves never drive anything as fancy as this. There’s much more, just watch the video, careful, it’s abit loud!
This is absolutely one of the most ironic claims in tv commercial advertising and especially on an Audi commercial. If you’re in the UK, you may have already seen this ad on tele before, it started showing about two to three weeks ago but we love it so much we wanted to post it here as well for everyone’s enjoyment!
The R8 is, of course, anything but slow! It is the fastest production car Audi has ever produced, however each one is constructed largely by hand, it actually has the by far the slowest build process of all Audi models. With such a special manufacturing process (much like making a cricket bat of some sort!), only a limited quantity of 450 will be delivered to the UK this year and 750 in 2008, with prices starting at ?77,000!
Yes I know the Audi R8 has already been seen on the busy streets of NY City and its caused some trouble there too! The Audi R8 is probably one of the most looked-forward-to-see fast cars soon to hit the UK, ok so maybe not alot of people will be able to afford one but imagine seeing someone drive an R8 and acrossing the street outside your house, woh! That’s why I can’t NOT show you this recent video clip by Top Gear which reviews the Audi R8!
But first, have a look at this video made by Audi themself:
