Altec Lansing speakers deliver at reasonable cost Not everyone has space around his computer for four or five satellite speakers and a subwoofer. And many of us don't want to pay $200 or more just to get good sound out of our PCs. Altec Lansing's Model 2100 solves both problems. It's a three-piece system that costs only $100 and delivers excellent sound without requiring you to lay down wires and hang a bunch of speakers like Christmas decorations on the walls and shelves around your computer.

Kicker has been in the boom-chukka-chukka car stereo business for 35 years. So what happens when a company with a two-word mission statement, Livin' Loud, designs its first iPod speaker dock? Stand back. The iKick iK500 Stereo System for iPod plays louder, and lower than just about anything in its class - the $250-and-under division. Its design, however, looks like something from the late-century, frat-house boombox handbook. This is a utilitarian speaker dock, nothing more. The iK500 has no clock, no alarm, no AM/FM radio.

A real home-theater pro would never consider putting a plasma or LCD or any other kind of wide-screen HDTV set in his luxurious screening room. No, true gearheads use a projector and an oversize, drop-down screen. It's the closest they can get to a real movie theater. Not long ago, these projectors cost $8,000 and upward. With improvements in Texas Instruments' Digital Light Processing technology - which uses a spinning color wheel and thousands of micromirrors to create a picture - a high-definition projector now costs half that.

Great features are packed into tiny CanoScan scanner There's a lot to love in a very small package with the CanoScan N656U. Weighing in at just over 3 pounds and slightly more than an inch high, this Canon flatbed scanner would be an attractive addition to any computer system. Sure, appearance should play only a minor role in a buying decision. But it's hard not to fall for this scanner at first sight with its eye-catching metallic finish and ultra-slim size. Of course, the true test comes in performance, and the CanoScan lives up to some rather ambitious promises.

It seems whenever Intel Corp. begins shipping a new processor, it comes with an unwanted feature -- controversy.When Intel's low-cost entry, the Celeron, was introduced, critics complained about its lack of onboard memory, or cache. And remember the floating-point math bug in the original Pentium? The Pentium Pro and Pentium II chips had similar problems.Now we have the Pentium III, with its built-in serial number that privacy groups say amounts to "Big Brother Inside." And there's the fact that the Pentium III is actually a Pentium II, with 70 extra software commands to boost multimedia performance.

The first computer I bought 12 years ago had a one-voice sound generator that played through the speaker of a TV set. With the right programming, it could give a pretty good rendition of a bad calliope playing the melody of the Star Spangled Banner.A few years later, somebody very smart figured out how to program it to produce four voices simultaneously. The first time I heard it play the William Tell Overture in four-part harmony, I was nearly in tears. I'm sure Rossini would have been, too.For quite a while, that was pretty much the state of the art. As long as computers could produce music and sound effects that had all the charm and presence of a radio alarm clock, nobody paid much attention to the speakers that were attached.

Adjustable Exo Desk fits its users without taking up much spaceLet's face it, computers and the Internet have been good for many things in our lives, but our bodies aren't among them. We work online, communicate through e-mail and enjoy recreation on our PCs, chaining us to a desk -- often a poorly designed one.Plenty of ergonomic desks are out there, but you won't find one more stylish than the Biomorph Exo Desk ($695-$795). The Exo Desk is designed with the home office in mind. It's compact, taking up a 4-foot-by-4-foot space, but has ample surface area for a large monitor (up to 21-inch)
