HP pals up with Tom Tom, and the result is the iPAQ rx5900 Travel Companion ($599), bringing together well-designed hardware with a friendly user interface. Laptop Magazine liked the way it feels like a full-fledged GPS device and a first-rate pocket PC, too, with neither seeming to be an afterthought.

Other highlights are the 3.5-inch touchscreen, the GPS software from Tom Tom which the reviewer called "top of the line," its WiFi prowess and its music-playing capability, all of which together could replace your GPS, PDA and MP3 player with one roadworthy package. Neat. Laptop liked it enough to call it an Editors' Choice, giving it four out of five stars.
