Just stare in awe at this massive BFGD—and no, the “F” doesn’t mean what you think it does. HP just became the first manufacturer to embrace Nvidia’s wild Big Format Gaming Displays in the form of the HP Omen X Emperium 65.

This is an insane monitor, full stop. It features a 65-inch 4K HDR display with 384 backlighting zones, DCI-P3 color gamut, game-smoothing G-Sync technology, and a blazing-fast 144Hz refresh rate. It also comes with an Nvidia Shield console built-in, and that massive screen sits on top of a 120 watt soundbar that has been specifically tuned to avoid ripping your monitor apart when things get loud. The soundbar can even detect and amplify footsteps and other in-game sounds if someone’s trying to creep up on you in Fortnite, Overwatch, or any other game.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this seriously swanky screen. Be sure to watch the video above for the full details. The Omen Emperium X 65 is expected to roll out in February with an MSRP of $5,000.

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.

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.

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.)

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!
