Read our comprehensive Nokia C7 review.

The Nokia C7 boasts a 3.5in AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, and also utilises a ClearBlack Display (CBD) -- the same screen found on the Nokia C6-01. Nokia claims the CBD offers a above-average contrast and has a polarising filter that cuts out the reflections that interfere with legibility. The company also states that the CBD will offer much better performance for use in direct sunlight, and that it is also more power efficient.

The CBD will compete with the "Super AMOLED" display used on the Samsung Galaxy S and the IPS "retina" display seen on the Apple iPhone 4, but its resolution of 640x360 is lower than both of these competitors.

The Nokia C7's features include an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 720p HD video recording and 8GB of internal memory, along with a microSD card slot that will accept cards up to 32GB in size. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity are all included. The Nokia C7 will also ship with Nokia's Ovi Maps application which provides free full turn-by-turn navigation for the lifetime of the device.

The Nokia C7 is not expected to launch in Australia until early 2011. Pricing is yet to be announced.

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.

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.
