#1: Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive)

When it came to choosing our hardest video game ninja, it was impossible to look past Ryu Hayabusa. The character first appeared on the NES in 1989, before being retconned into Tecno’s Dead or Alive series. He has since gone on to appear in a succession or Ninja Gaiden games across the Xbox, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; culminating in the obscenely bloody Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

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


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.

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.
