Bacteria fighting Logitech MX3200 Wireless combo

So it's come to this. Now that every wireless keyboard/mouse combo looks pretty much like every other keyboard/mouse combo, manufacturers have had to start coming up with new ways to differentiate their products.

I'll admit that I couldn't have dreamed this one up: Logitech's MX3200 keyboard and mouse are coated in the AgION antimicrobial compound so that bacteria, mold and mildew won't take up residence. (This isn't an idle concern -- a 2004 University of Arizona study showed that the average keyboard had up to 3,295 microbes per square inch, compared to a mere 49 for toilet seats; but that's nothing compared to the 25,127 found on telephones.)

Given our seemingly unstoppable mania for disinfecting every last bit of our surroundings, the MX3200 will no doubt fly off the shelves. Just remember that in the end, it will be those of us with working immune systems who will rule the world, laughing from our awe-inspiring (and slightly grubby) palaces.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
