For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

I found Windows 10 to be useful for work as it offers many benefits to business people. The Virtual Desktop on my Lenovo Yoga is a great feature for working on multiple projects. It helps maintain a more efficient workspace by having applications for a particular task or project open in one decluttered desktop then switching to another desktop for a different task. The ability to pin any window or application to all desktops is a welcome update and having a sneaky desktop for social media when the boss isn't looking is also handy.

Once you master the keyboard shortcuts, especially for switching between desktops, Virtual Desktop becomes a vital tool for your work.

The Action Centre notifications are a huge improvement over the bubble-system tray notifications of previous Windows which quickly faded into the ether after they popped up. It also nicely groups them together and is clever enough not to allow individual applications to hog the whole panel.

The quick actions are probably the handiest feature in the Action Centre. They allow for quick and easy access to common Windows tasks and the enabling/disabling of individual features like WiFi or connecting to a VPN.

Ink Workspace Space is getting quite handy - in particular Screen Sketch. This is great for taking screenshots and annotating them before sending them out. It makes getting your point out there a lot easier.

Windows 10 is also great for downtime. The Xbox app is a great companion for your Xbox gaming experience. The home screen layout lets you easily catch up with what your friends have been up to and post comments with the convenience of a keyboard. The recorded game clips work with better video stuttering and buffering performance than more-established streaming sites.

The group function made looking for other gamers very simple by just clicking on a game title. It’s a great way to bring strangers together. Connecting the app to the Xbox console was a breeze and I like the ability to stream my Xbox console to my PC when the TV is being used. 

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
