Mac devotees have had the opportunity to experience no-frills computing with the Mac Mini for four years. Now PC purists have the chance to have a go too. The Inspiron Zino HD from Dell is just the thing if you already own a display, USB keyboard and mouse and don't fancy paying full whack for a whole new package. Available in 10 different hues (which each cost an extra £20), if you're willing to spend more than the basic £299 price, you can tart up this mini desktop computer and add a Blu-ray disc drive. Not bad when you consider the Mac Mini's starting price is £499, and the choice of under-the-hood additions means that you won't end up paying for any extras that you don't need. A handy buy if you're tempted to turn your living room into something approaching a multi-media hub without parking a PC on the sofa. Euro.dell.com/uk

Putting headphones on the world was a terminally divisive act: locked into their own soundscape, each person is now an island. This is the premise on which East Neuk Festival, up in Fife, an hour's drive from Edinburgh, has commissioned three new works from composer Martin Parker, for the instruments on which they will be played are, quite simply, headphones. Festival audiences will be able to rent them and mp3 players, and take the music with them to listen to, in the places that inspired them: a harbour-side bench overlooking the bay at Elie, a holy cave in Pittenweem, and a leafy dell with spiritual overtones behind a church.
