    3.00 / 5

Pros

  • Does a very deep and comprehensive job of finding a wide range of issues

Cons

  • Expensive for what you actually get

Bottom Line

Given that there are some very good free programs that perform similar tasks, such as CCleaner, is this program worth paying for? If you only need the basics, then CCleaner will do a great job. For more complex tasks, Advanced System Optimizer is worth considering. Unfortunately, though, because the download only scans your PC, and doesn't fix problems, you won't get a chance to test out whether it works well enough on your PC to warrant paying for it. Basically, you'll have to decide if you like the interface and the promised functions well enough to make the leap.

Would you buy this?

Advanced System Optimizer is an all-in-one tool that promises to keep your PC running in top shape, keep it secure, and clean your hard disk. It does a very deep and comprehensive job of finding a wide range of issues. Bear in mind, though, that this downloadable demo will not fix the problems that it finds. For example, it won't clean junk files, fix Registry errors, protect your privacy by cleaning out Internet traces, and so on.

Unlike many programs of this type Advanced System Optimizer is well laid out, and simple to use. Along the left side of the screen are the major categories of tasks you will want to do, such as Registry Optimizers, Windows Optimizers, and so on. Click any of them, and you'll see subcategories. So it's simple to get straight to the task you want to do.

One nice touch is that before Advanced System Optimizer goes about its work, it first backs up system files and creates a restore point so that you can restore your PC to the condition it was in before you started using it. It's got just about every tool you can imagine for doing that, from cleaning your hard disk to optimizing your Registry, to looking for missing and outdated drivers, and performing maintenance tasks. It's similar to the popular TuneUp Utilities (US$50), and has more features.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
