It's like holding a floodlight to a candle. Incredibly, the VPL-EW weighs only 6.1 lb and occupies a square-foot footprint
Pico projectors emerged in 2009 as a new category thanks to the convergence of three crtical factors: the white LED as an illumination source, tiny projection chips to form the image, and rising numbers of notebook and netbook users looking to enlarge the picture. Given that the big plus of these wee projectors is ultra portability, how does a manufacturer make them even smaller?

Docking stations used to be fairly niche accessories, matching a specific brand of computer and connecting via a proprietary port. Universal docking stations have changed this, and Toshiba's dynadock V is a fine example of a modern universal dock. The compact device connects to a
