ASUS recently unleashed the new MeMO Pad FHD 10 Android tablet, a 10-inch tablet with the new Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, 1920 x 1200 Full HD IPS (in-plane switching) display and ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, all of which makes it ideal for entertainment, 1080p video playback, and handheld gaming.

The new slate features Intel hyper-threading technology for improved graphics and better energy efficiency. The unit is just 9.5mm thick and 580g light, and its lithium polymer battery lasts for up to 10 hours with 720p video playback. Its grippable, micro-weave finish is available in Royal Blue, Silk White, and Vivid Pink

The tablet's slim design includes a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, a autofocusing, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera for stills and 1080p video recording, a microSD card slot, and 802.11a/b/g/n wireless connectivity. ASUS Miracast also wirelessly connects the tablet to a Wi-Fi enabled TV or projector to share movies, photos and presentations. 5GB of free lifetime ASUS Web Storage is also included.

Great accessories for the MeMO Pad FHD 10 include the Folio Key Bluetooth keyboard/cover whose magnetic bottom-edge props-up the tablet, locking it securely in place for optimal view, while its metal base also acts as a handy stand.

In short, the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 delivers value, versatility, and a screen that's easy on the eyes. The 16GB version sells for $329. The 32GB model lists for $349. The sexy ASUS Folio Key sells for $99.99. For more information, visit ASUS.com.

Time-tested imaging software gets even better

Acronis has just released True Image 2014, featuring scheduled automatic backup to the Acronis Cloud, as well as imaging to traditional, locally-attached storage. Like previous versions, TI2K14's powerful capabilities can safeguard important data from natural disasters, theft, or hardware failure by keeping a complete system image in a safe remote location.

A simple, user interface lets you backup/restore your data easier than ever. With its desktop and mobile applications, including iOS and Android support, backup data can be accessed and restored anywhere, anytime to any PC.

The certified Windows 8-compatible software performs both full or incremental backup to local storage. Backups to the Acronis Cloud are also possible, so you're covered even if your local backup is damaged, lost, or stolen. Five gigabytes (5GB) of secure Acronis Cloud storage is included at no charge for one year ($9.99 per year thereafter.)

I've been using True Image Home Edition since 2009. Burning a rescue CD/DVD, booting from USB, creating/restoring system images have all remained virtually idiot-proof version after version. Other products offer similar features, but Acronis always seems to do it better and more reliably.

True Image 2014
by Acronis sells for $49.99. A 3-PC license pack is also available for $79.99. Acronis Cloud storage options above 5GB range from 50GB to 250GB. 50GB starts at $29.99/year. A free, 30-day trial is also available. For more information, visit Acronis.com.
