BlackBerry Storm

RIM Blackberry Storm 9500

We are a little hesitant to put this in with the rest of the bunch — though the Storm’s local release by Vodafone is imminent, the phone isn’t necessarily feature-packed and initial impressions are not that promising. As usual, the iPhone comparisons are flying left, right and centre in international BlackBerry Storm reviews, though this time it is a reasonable comparison. The Storm represents the shift from Research in Motion’s regular business-focused clientele to the consumer side of things, with a heavier emphasis on multimedia features and the inclusion of a touch screen.

Ultimately, though, it seems like the Storm is yet another failed attempt to cash-in on the touch-screen craze with little experience to back it up. As our US colleagues found in their extensive review, the Storm’s capacitive and “clickable” touch screen — the feature that RIM bet on to differentiate the phone from competitors — does more harm than good.

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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


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.

Taylor Carr


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

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
