Grundig GSTB3111BR

The Grundig GSTB3111BR set top box combines a digital TV receiver with a Blu-ray disc player that supports Full HD 1080p playback. It's a simple product, but that doesn't mean it's bad -- it does an entirely acceptable job when it comes to playing both digital TV and Blu-ray video. Its interface isn't especially good looking and the remote control is a little basic, but if you're prepared to put up with this then there's little reason to buy a more expensive Blu-ray player or set top box unless you need a PVR or Web access.

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.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

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.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
