HP Split 13 x2

The Split 13 x2 combines a fairly lightweight 13-inch tablet with a keyboard, battery and storage dock. It’s a strong concept, though aspects of HP’s execution aren’t as solid as they could be.

Adonit Jot Pro capacitive stylus

A stylus may seem a small, incidental accessory, but this precision pointer proves perfect for turning any capacitive-touchscreen device into a basic but workable graphics tablet. We tested the Jot Pro with a number of different tablets, across a ran...

LG G Flex Android phone (preview)

Though it’s presently only slated for release in South Korea, we had a hands-on with LG’s curved-screen ‘G Flex’ smartphone in Auckland ahead of its appearance at New Zealand’s annual Big Boys Toys expo.

Sony SmartWatch 2

Sony’s latest smartwatch aims to be a notification device above all else. No camera, no speaker, no microphone – it’s no Galaxy Gear, nor does it want to be. That simple approach results in a smart, focused and genuinely useful little piece of weara...

HP ENVY TouchSmart 15 laptop

HP’s ENVY brand once represented the finest consumer laptops the company had to offer. It’s a pity, then, that the latest ENVY 15 left us feeling so disappointed.

Gigabyte P34G gaming laptop

In deference to its Alienware and ROG competitors, Gigabyte’s P34G gaming notebook is Ultrabook-level slim and light, with the sedate styling of a modern business machine. However, it’s not nearly as spineless as its svelteness suggests.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 (preview)

Whilst the ASUS Transformer line began with Android-powered convertibles, the latest Transformer Book T100 sports Microsoft’s Windows 8.1. We had a brief hands-on with the T100 at its launch event in Sydney, late October.

Microsoft Surface 2 Windows tablet

Less than a year after the launch of its first Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets, Microsoft has launched the next iteration of its tablet family, including the Windows 8.1 RT-based Surface 2.

Dell Alienware 18 gaming laptop

Dell’s Alienware 18 is a 5.5kg behemoth of a gaming ‘laptop’, with a massive price and desktop-like specs. We put it to the test, to see just what all that money, weight and bulk will get you.

In pictures: Logitech G602 unpacked

A good mouse is critical to any hardcore PC gamer. Logitech has a good track record in the area, and when we first laid eyes on the G602 in a recent press release we couldn't wait to test it out. We'll have a review for you later this week. For now, ...

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite

Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite is thin, lightweight and offers impressively long battery life, but proves disappointingly gutless in even the most basic tasks.

Unboxing: Lifeproof nüüd for iPhone 5

We've been eagerly awaiting a review sample of Lifeproof's latest IP68-rated waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof 'nüüd' case for the iPhone 5. Watch as we unbox, deploy and get the 'nüüd' a little wet for science.

Hands on: BlackBerry announces new Z30 smartphone

Announced last night, the BlackBerry Z30 is the latest smartphone from the once market-leading company, formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM). We had a brief hands-on with a preproduction version of the device in Auckland this morning.

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.
