Panasonic HDC-SD5

Along with rival manufacturer Sony, Panasonic is touting the AVCHD recording format as 'the next big thing' in high definition video. The main benefit of AVCHD is its superior compression rate over MPEG-2; an old video codec which is around 50 per ce...

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

When Guitar Hero made its power sliding debut onto the gaming stage last year, few people could have anticipated the cultural phenomenon that would follow. In much the same way that rock n' roll revolutionised the music industry, it has irrevocably c...

ASUS U1F

The ASUS U1F (1P010E) is the undisputed featherweight champion of the ultraportable world, weighing in at a truly anorexic 1.1 kg, with dimensions of just 261 x 190 x 29 mm. If you're after a notebook for frequent mobile use, they certainly don't get...

Lexar 16GB ExpressCard SSD

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.
