cnet.com.au:

"The 500D is a very capable camera that is ideal for someone who is just entering the world of digital SLRs. The inclusion of high-definition video adds even more appeal to the already good-looking package. It's a pretty crowded market segment, with the Nikon D5000 and the Olympus E-620 also in the "not quite entry level"' dSLR space, but the 500D is a pretty strong contender and on specs alone is very appealing."

Techradar.com:

"Essentially what we have here is a scaled-back 50D with 15.1 megapixels, new Digic 4 image processor and the ability to record full-HD 1080p video (the only other Canon SLR that offers this is the pro-level 5D Mark II)."

Rating: 4/5

PC Mag:

"Offering image quality and a robust feature set typically found in pricier prosumer-level D-SLRs, the Canon EOS Rebel T1i is a definite game-changer."

Rating: 4/5

Reghardware.co.uk:

"The problem companies like Canon face is offering DSLRs with Full HD video, which at the same time, don’t harm its sales of camcorder products or more expensive DSLR offerings like the EOS 5D Mark II, which has Full HD at 30fps. It’s a hard balance to get right and, in its attempts to achieve it, it appears that Canon has compromised the video performance a little too much on the EOD 500D."

Rating: 4/5

Photoreview.com.au:

"Build quality has been matched to the 500D's market position, which is a step above entry level. Despite looking a little plasticky, the new model's body feels solid, thanks to a stainless steel core beneath the polycarbonate resin casing, which has glass fibre reinforcement for additional strength."

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
