If you don't need a fast, draft-n wireless network, the Linksys WRT54G2 is one of the best options on the market. This is mainly because it's so easy to set up, is a reliable performer, and comes with the convenient LELA configuration and monitoring utility. Plus, it looks good: it's black, sleek, and doesn't have any protruding antennas.
The airy box that surrounds the inner workings of Netgear's WNR854T wireless router certainly isn't the smallest we've seen. Its large size serves a purpose: it allows the unit's three antennas to hide inside.

In the dog-eat-dog world of commodity, Intel-based servers, IBM’s eServer xSeries 450 is a greyhound. As is often the case with such purpose-bred creatures, IBM’s lean and svelte rack-mountable 64-bit solution sacrifices computing heft (lots of memory and expansion possibilities) in favour of another worthwhile quality — a smaller footprint.
