Logitech PlayGear Pocket PSP Case Review @ The TechZone:
"The stylish Logitech PlayGear Pocket case is designed to protect your Sony PSP against wear and tear, scratches and bumps. The case is made from a virtually indestructible polycarbonate shell and allows for complete accessibility to all the Sony PSP functions. The versatile case lid flips up and out of the way, allowing gamers to use the PSP without removing it from the case, and still protect their portable game machine. The lid's tension hinge allows it to rotate and stay open at any angle; it can serve as a sun visor for outdoor game play or as a tabletop stand for hands-free viewing of videos or listening to music. The PlayGear Pocket also provides easy access to the 3.5 mm audio port so that gamers can plug in their earphones while the PSP is fully enclosed in the case."

On average and across all resolutions there is ripping ~8% increase in scores, especially with Antialiasing and Anisotropic Filtering enabled."

"The basic design of laptops makes them the obvious choice for those who need their computing to be mobile. All of the key components (and then some) of a desktop computer can easily be configured into a minimal housing that goes with you just about anywhere. That said, there are some things you may want to add to your laptop computer in order to make it more comfortable to use, more convenient, and to extend its life while enduring the strains of daily use."
"The developments of video card technology were full of interesting innovations. Initially, 3dfx was at the head of the pack, but their fault lay with trying to milk their old technology for everything that it was worth even when it was past the expiration date. At the same time, nVidia cruised down the road of innovation. And then ATi sped by in a Ferrari. nVidia played catch up, and the two companies became neck-and-neck for a while. Now, nVidia's SLI technology has pulled nVidia ahead onto the bleeding edge of innovation, while for the moment, ATi is hanging back."
