Asus today released its new M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards that are developed specifically for use in Home Theatre Personal Computers (HTPCs). According to a press release, the M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards are based on the AMD 780G chipset, which integrates HDMI/DVI support to display HD videos. The board also incorporates ASUS Absolute Pitch Hi-Fi and DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC Technology, for sound enhancement.

Furthermore, M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards come with a media center dubbed Home Theatre Gate and a low-noise, energy efficient Tranquil Mode that offer users greater convenience and a more conducive music environment respectively.

The M4A78-HTPC Series are the first motherboards to be equipped with the Asus Absolute Pitch Hi-Fi technology which dedicates an independent audio power connector solely to audio components. Additionally, the gold-plated RCA stereo audio connectors are compatible with amplifiers without requiring additional connectors -- making it simple to link PCs to home theatre equipment. Furthermore, the M4A78-HTPC supports DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC Technology for true high-definition home theatre entertainment.

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.

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.
