Watch Apple’s Oct 16 launch event live

A new iPad is expected to take on Google’s upcoming Nexus tablet in the coming days

Apple is expected to announce new versions of its Mac computers and notebooks come 16 October, but the device that has people waiting with bated breath is the follow up to the company’s iPad Air.

The revamped iPad will have stiff competition from Google, if a Forbes report pans out. Word has it Google will finally take the wraps off its Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone tomorrow morning, at about the same Apple will unveil the iPad Air 2.

Google isn’t holding a launch event, with the tech giant predicted to turn to its blog for the announcement.

Apple is hosting an event at the Town Hall auditorium located on its campus in California. The best part: Apple is streaming the event live, which means you’ll be able to watch the announcement as it happens.

Watch the Apple event here.

Fans who cannot get up at 4am can keep tabs on the Good Gear Guide site, which will be covering the event extensively as it happens, along with recaps of the new products.

For those who do make the effort to get up, share your thoughts with us on Twitter: [[xref:https://twitter.com/GoodGearGuide @goodgearguide]]. We look forward to hearing from you.

Who knows, there might be another “one more thing” moment.

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!

Mark Escubio

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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