HP Pavilion tx2522au (FK677PA)

Style and ease of use are hallmarks of the 12.1in HP tx2522, and it also has adequate processing power. It's pitched at home users who require the functionality of a tablet, but without the exorbitant price tag most tablets command. But its battery l...

Toshiba Qosmio X300

There's probably nothing worse than a laptop that stands out from the crowd, especially one with as much flare as Toshiba's Qosmio X300; unless you love the attention, of course. The flame design on the lid, the red trim and LEDs are all imagery for ...

Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Weighing only slightly more than 1kg, and measuring only 23.2cm wide and 17cm deep, the 8.9in Inspiron Mini 9 ultraportable "netbook" sure is small. Its dimensions and weight are perfect for travellers and commuters who don't want to lug around anyth...

Until you’ve used a full-format digital camera -- or unless you’re a user of 35mm film cameras — it’s hard to understand what all the fuss is about.

Fujitsu Lifebook E8420

Fujitsu's Lifebook E8420 is a business tool with plenty of useful hardware and software features, and, most importantly, it's fast!

ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP@n

There's much to like about the P5Q3 Deluxe, which is a motherboard that makes use of Intel's P45 chipset. It's a fully-featured board that's perfect for a mid-level or high-end system, but it runs DDR3 memory, which means you probably won't be able t...

EVGA nForce 750i SLI FTW

The NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI is only a mid-range enthusiast-level chipset, so it's definitely not the bee's knees if you want to build the ultimate gaming rig. However, EVGA has put it to good use on its Intel-based nForce 750i SLI FTW motherboard, off...

Netgear RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WNR3500)

It's hard to be enthused by Netgear's WNR3500 wireless router, which underperformed in all of our wireless tests. The upside is that it has a Gigabit Ethernet switch built in, so its wired performance is a class above most routers. However, this also...

HP Compaq Presario SR5560AN (KT494AA)

When you're at the mall browsing for a new PC to furnish your bedroom or home office with, this Compaq Presario won't stand out from the Pavilions next to it, much less the iMacs. But it's definitely worth stopping to check it out if you do see it, b...

Alienware Area-51 M17X

When the gaming stakes are high, you need a laptop with components that can deliver a high level of performance. Alienware's Area-51 M17X is one of those laptops, but you'll need to empty your mattress of your life savings in order to buy it.

Creative Zen Mozaic 4GB

We're fans of Creative's Zen digital media player. It's easy to use, looks good and it's versatile. However, the latest model in the flash-based Zen range, the 4GB Mozaic, is only one of those things: versatile.

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.

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.
