With gigantic transducers, uncovered earcups and Alcantara ear pads, Sennheiser’s HD800 headphones promise high fidelity natural listening–and make you pay out the nose for it.
A bargain entertainment laptop, Gateway’s MD Series is not bad for the price: its 15.6″ screen only displays 1366×678, but it includes a 512MB Radeon 3650, 1.3MP camera and HDMI out.
