Dear Charles,

Welcome to the latest PC Pro newsletter

News headlines: We reveal how the iPhone 3G advert should have looked; investigate which PC retailers will be passing on the VAT cuts to customers; and unveil just how terrible British broadband speeds actually are

This week's new reviews: We get to grips with the super-light Toshiba Port�g� R600; Sony brings its usual sense of style to the all-in-one VAIO; and the monstrously powerful Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 graphics card roars into the labs

PC Pro podcast: On this week's show we discuss Fujitsu Siemens' promise to give customers a free laptop every three years; debate what can be done about the shocking state of British broadband; and the team pick their favourite Gmail themes. Listen to it here

Best of the blogs: Barry Collins ponders Ofcom's latest, bizarre excuse; David Bayon charts the wandering history of the Eee PC; and Tim Danton on the joys of backup
