Triple Threat

Protect your system, get a better view and take business on the road with these three tools.

This story appears in the March 2006 issue of Start Up.

All In One: Data protection and system maintenance are two important goals of Symantec's Norton SystemWorks 2006. A dashboard-style interface makes sure that any computer user will feel comfortable with the program and not have to face a steep learning curve to get the most out it. The package includes Norton GoBack, a program that can roll your system back to before a problem installation or an unwanted program took its toll. Norton CleanUp helps you get rid of unwanted files, and Norton AntiVirus and a system optimization solution come bundled as well. SystemWorks 2006 costs under $70, and a Premier version with even more features is available for just under $100. Visit www.symantec.com for more information.

Flat Out Worth It: Flat-panel monitors are more affordable than ever. Case in point: Hewlett-Packard's L1706. For $319, you get a clean, silver design with a wide 140-degree viewing angle, 1,280 x 1,024 resolution, a range of tilt settings and a detachable base. There's no pivot capability, but that's to be expected in this price range. If you want, you can add an attachable USB speaker bar for $35. The three-year warranty with on-site service is a nice benefit that will help keep you working with mini-mal interruptions should anything happen. A 48-hour exchange is also available under the warranty. For more details, stop by www.hp.com.
