Keyboards and Mice? Who needs them?

We've taken a deep interest into 'Ubiquitous Computing' lately. For those not familiar with the term, ubiquitous computing is a form of pervasive and integrated information systems, where the traditional interface between a user and their PC is radically different.

The idea behind it is to create an information aware environment, without having to sit at a computer terminal. Imagine standing at a bus stop, and accessing a timetable which is displayed on the lens of your glasses. We feel we are slowly getting closer to this form of computing. Geeks and gadgets seem to be riding this wave, employing technology such as RFID and 802.11G gizmos, but hopefully the idea will become more refined with time. Think of the Oakley Thump, but on steroids, with voice activation and other goodies. The possibilities are huge.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
