So, what do I want out of my next laptop and what must it include?
Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP
- Easily accessible USB and CF slots
- Slightly dark and muted shades in photos
With a $2899 price tag, the 3007WFP is certainly not cheap, though it does cost in the same range as other 30-inch LCDs. But if you're looking for a big display on which to spread out a few open windows, then the 3007WFP could be a good investment.
Price$ 2,899.00 (AUD)
Dell's UltraSharp 3007WFP turned in strong scores in the text portion of our image quality tests: true to the monitor's name, text in a Microsoft Word document was indeed sharp, and text in a screen of multi-sized fonts was crisp and easy to read, even at small font sizes.
The Dell didn't perform quite as well as the other displays when rendering colour, though it did represent colours nicely overall. While colours in a screen of a Web site looked bright and accurate, some photos appeared slightly dark, with muted shades. The effect was not really distracting--just enough to be barely visible.
The 3007WFP has easily accessible media slots and USB ports--a four-in-one media card reader, a separate CF slot, and two USB ports reside on the left side of the display. Two more USB ports are situated on the back.
The only controls the 3007WFP includes are those for brightness--touch-sensitive buttons on the front let you turn brightness up or down. It lacks other controls because there are no on-screen components to support the display's high resolution of 2560 by 1600. Dell says that future versions of the display will include an OSD.
The 3007WFP has a smooth black bezel and a V-shaped silver stand. It tilts and swivels smoothly, though it does not pivot. It is height-adjustable and wall-mountable.
With a $2899 price tag, the 3007WFP is certainly not cheap, though it does cost in the same range as other 30-inch LCDs. However, if you're looking for a big display on which to spread out a few open windows, then the 3007WFP could be a good investment.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
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!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
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.
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.
