Welcome to the new-look Register Hardware, the personal technology web site that goes from the lab to the living room to bring you the best news and product reviews of the coolest kit - and some of the clangers - coming out of the computer and consumer electronics worlds.

In addition to an fresh, dynamic design, we've expanded our news coverage - already well known for the same 'take no prisoners' approach as our sister-site, The Register - and created an entirely new reviews section where we'll be casting a critical eye over the hottest technology products, from games consoles, laptops, smartphones and accessories to UMPCs, GPS kit, networked media players and HD TVs.

Today also marks the launch of Q&A, a unique online help and advice service in which Register Hardware readers ask and answer their tech troubles, product queries and buying concerns.

We'll be bringing you a host of must-read features too - not forgetting our hugely popular competitions, which have already seen us give away Samsung plasma TVs, Sony PS3s, Microsoft Xbox Elites and Nokia smartphones, among other great prizes. And we have more coming your way.

So let us know what stories you want to see covered, which products you'd like to see tested, and of course post your questions - and answers - in Q&A. Remember, Register Hardware is here to help you.

Don't forget you can keep up-to-date with all our latest news stories, reviews, competitions and features through Register Hardware's many RSS and Atom feeds. And it's all on-screen for easy access at our homepage www.reghardware.co.uk.
