Silence is golden -- and portable

Sometimes you have to get away from it all, even if the farthest you can travel is in your own head. One way you can do that without resorting to illegal substances is through the Total Isolation System. It's got a fancy name, but essentially it's just two parts: in-ear noise-cancelling earphones (which, it's claimed, masks up to 90 percent of surrounding noise) and a CD with nothing but different types of white noise (for most of the remaining 10 percent).

The Total Isolation System sells for US$315, which makes me think that you could spend half the price and get something almost as effective by combining a pair of Shure noise-cancelling earphones and a similar CD. However, as someone who used to suffer from migraines on a nearly daily basis, I'd say that US$315 is chump change for saving your sanity.

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.

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.
