Dell Pocket DJ

Put a silver iPod mini beside Dell's Pocket DJ, and--except for the buttons--you would have an easier time telling the Olsen twins apart (pre-hair-dye job). The Dell has nearly the same dimensions as its rival and a polished metal case to match. Switch it on, and the Now Playing screen displays the same font and layout you'd find on the mini.

The Pocket DJ packs 5GB of storage--a full gigabyte more storage space than the mini's 4GB--for the same price. Dell also includes the most intuitive music management program I've used--Musicmatch 9--and the DJ's use of a scroll dial (similar to the scroll wheel on a mouse) as its primary control permits speedy, simple navigation. The dedicated Home and Back buttons come in handy, too.

Gym rats will wish the Dell came with an armband. It lacks an FM tuner and recording capabilities as well. But despite those drawbacks, Dell's Pocket DJ is a fine digital music player.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
