Water Music

US-based Oregon Scientific may just have come up with a way of relieving the monotony for those of us who swim dozens of laps at the pool each day by releasing the world's first waterproof MP3 player.

Not only is the compact MP-120 unit waterproof, it is specifically designed to be used while swimming and can operate safely at a depth of around about 1 metre. Out of the water, the MP-120 works as any other digital music player, but when those aquatic urges strike, you simply attach a small plug to the end of the unit to seal it and don the specially provided rubber headphones.

The MP-120 has an LCD backlit screen which can be seen under water and if you run out of music tracks, there's always the FM Radio to keep you occupied. We'll have a review up soon, so make sure you check back to the GoodGearGuide.

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.

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.

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

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.
