Samsung's army of Android phones just got a new recruit with the Galaxy S4 Mini, a watered-down version of its bigger, badder brother. The mid-range Mini doesn't depart from Samsung's tradition of milking its flagships with variations on the same theme--but that doesn't mean the S4 Mini is not a capable phone.

While the pricing, availability, and carrier support are all yet unknown, the specs of the Galaxy S4 Mini stack up quite well against its mid-range competition, and even against more expensive hero-type handsets from other manufacturers.

With a 4.3-inch display, the S4 Mini is still larger than the iPhone 5--albeit with a lower-resolution screen--and the specs inside are ahead of a bunch of phones that are available right now.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
