The Dell Streak is designed to hit a 'sweet spot' between typical smartphones and tablets. During the time we spent with it, the Android-based Streak tablet was wonderful for browsing photos, viewing movies, navigating the Web and reading e-books. It's a whole lot easier to carry than the iPad and it offers the flexibility of the Android platform, unlike Apple's closed iPhone OS. At the moment, it's unknown which Australian carriers will offer the Streak and what sort of data plans will be available.

The ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU runs at 1GHz. It gives the Streak enough grunt to display HD video smoothly and it really does look good on the 5in screen.

The Dell Streak is a thin tablet (only around 1cm thick) with nice curves. Here you can see the top view, which includes the camera shutter, power and volume buttons, as well as the audio port.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
