    New Technology expert Jody Vining discusses the different mobile computing options available.

    Jody Vining: There are a lot of mobile computing devices out there on the market today and it can be difficult to figure out which one fits into your mobile lifestyle. We have got a few examples right here to try to clear the air for you. We have got a tablet, this is from Archos, brand new, it's thin, it's light, it's inexpensive, runs the Android operating system, of course you don't have a keyboard and you don't have access to windows applications but if you just need to access the web, your email, games, video, these are perfect. But if you need a keyboard and you need the ability to run windows application but you don't want to spend a whole lot of money and you need something small, checkout something like this Net book from Toshiba. It gives you full access to Windows applications but of course, a slower processor and less memory so things aren't going to be quite as snappy as you might like. If you want things to be a little faster but you still don't want to sacrifice size, you want something small. Checkout something like this thin and light from Sony, it's a Sony VIAO, it's got 13 inch screen, you are not going to notice much of the speed hit from your desktop and it's really, really thin and light, and of course if you need full desktop power. If you edit videos, if you edit photos on the road, if you need the full power of desktop computer, check out something like this from ASUS, it has a 1920 x 1080 full HD display, tons of storage, tons of memory and really you are sacrificing nothing from a desktop PC. So hopefully it clears the air on what mobile device fits into your mobile lifestyle.
