Now that's revolutionary...

Most of us here at the GoodGearGuide are well into gaming. With the release of several new consoles over the coming year, including the highly anticipated Microsoft XBox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, we can't help but get excited over the never-ending console wars.

While Microsoft and Sony have been battling it out over their new generation gaming machines, there is one other console manufacturer who have been kept relatively quiet amongst all the fuss - Nintendo.

Slipping off the radar with the unsuccessful GameCube which failed to compete with the Xbox and PlayStation 2, Nintendo's new console (codenamed the Revolution) is perhaps their last foray into the console gaming world but they definitely aren't going down without a fight.

Whilst the incredible remote control style gamepad has definitely turned some heads, what has really got our attention at the GoodGearGuide is the backwards compatibility of the system. Nintendo has revealed that the revolution will be able to play all games from any Nintendo console ever released. Yes, you read correctly - the Revolution will have downloadable access to 20 years of titles originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It will also be backward compatible with the current GameCube console.

Now THAT'S what we call a revolution.

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.

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.

MSI PS63

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.
