National Lampoon's Animal House 30th Anniversary Edition Gift Set

Pixar's latest epic is an endearing and masterful social commentary that just happens to be adorable, hilarious and an absolute blast for viewers of all ages. In the near future, the human race has left the earth behind for greener pastures (no pun intended), only to leave behind a tiny, curious sanitation robot all on his lonesome. It's not long before this delightful 'bot finds himself entangled in an outrageous adventure that may be the salvation of our once green planet, and a spectacular film that the whole family can enjoy!


Horton Hears a Who!

With an all-star cast of voice actors, from The Office's Steve Carell to Ace Ventura's Jim Carrey, Horton Hears a Who! is a modern re-telling of the timeless story for all ages, reminding viewers everywhere that life matters - no matter how small it may be.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Ed Dawson

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
