New iPod lineup

Apple today announced the introduction of a new iPod, iPod nano and iPod shuffle as well as the latest version of the world's most popular music jukebox and online music and video store, iTunes 7.

The most significant changes are to the new iPod shuffle, which is a complete redesign of the original unit. The new shuffle is now the world's smallest digital music player, weighing just 14g and featuring a built-in pocket clip. The shuffle now only comes in a 1GB capacity (holding up to 240 songs) and features up to 12 hours of battery life.

Also introduced was the new range of iPod nanos, featuring all-new coloured aluminum designs. The new nano looks similar to the previous iPod mini, albeit much smaller. Apple claims it has up to 24 hours of battery life and a 40% brighter screen than its predecessor. There are 2GB, 4GB and 8GB models available in silver, pink, green, blue and black.

Apple has also slightly upgraded the 5G video iPod, featuring a 60% brighter screen for video playback and full colour games such as Tetris and Mini Golf. The new iPod is available in either 30GB or 80GB capacities.

In addition to the hardware, Apple released the latest version of iTunes, version 7. The new software features album and cover flow views, the ability to download games for playback on your iPod as well as an all new integration with the iPod.

We got an exclusive look at the new products, including iTunes 7, at an Apple media briefing this morning and we were very impressed, particularly with the miniscule shuffle, which will surely turn some heads.

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.

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.
