For me, the prospect of all-day battery life and that excellent keyboard seal the deal in favor of the ThinkPad X30. But if your priorities are a bit different, particularly if you feel the need for a built-in optical drive, the Actius MV10W is a worthy machine.

Of the U.S. computer-hardware makers that have announced third-quarter earnings, the results are mixed at best. Significantly, the majority of computer companies are projecting only muted growth from the third to the all-important fourth quarter, which typically benefits from the holiday-shopping season and from the so-called corporate budget flush -- spending by businesses to deplete their remaining information-technology budgets for the year. The idea is: Use it or lose it.

In the old days, there were shops of all kinds -- bakeries, shoe stores, pharmacies, and the like. Then came Wal-Mart. And the fear that the giant all-in-one store would come to small towns and squash mom-and-pop operations turned out to be real. American consumers find the Bentonville, (Ark.)-based discounter, which topped $226 billion in revenues in 2001, irresistible for its convenience, selection, and low prices. As local stores have continued to close, Wal-Mart has grown to 2,780 outlets in the U.S. alone. And that breakneck expansion shows little sign of slowing, despite the rough economy.
