The LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet offers decent battery life, an excellent display, and reasonable performance for a competitive asking price. However, LG's software can be overwhelming and confusing if you're a first time user.

3. Google Nexus 7 Android tablet

When you combine the Nexus 7's low price with its excellent performance, it's easy to see why it represents such outstanding value. The Nexus 7 stacks up superbly against rival devices that command a price tag well above its $249-$299 ...

4. Asus Transformer Pad (TF701T) Android tablet

There is a lot to like about the new Asus Transformer Pad. It is powerful, has a fantastic screen and offers the additional functionality of a keyboard and trackpad. But all of this comes at a price.

5. Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2in review

A select few will swear this is the best tablet on the market. They’ll hurriedly explain how it has more powerful hardware; how its software is more versatile; and how the added two inches has helped them ditch their 13-inch ...

6. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) tablet

Samsung’s revision of its Galaxy Note 10.1 has transformed it from an average slate to a well-rounded media, creativity, and day-to-day tablet. Its build and screen quality are the most notable upgrades, with the S Pen also delivering the goods. ...

7. Google Nexus 10 Android tablet

The Google Nexus 10 is a thin and lightweight tablet with an exceptional screen and a competitive price. It's only let down by a lack of expandable memory and the fact there's not enough third-party apps optimised for its larger ...

8. ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T Android tablet

An excellent, high resolution screen, a stylish design that's well constructed and great battery life make the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity one of the best Android tablets on the market. However, the lack of 3G or 4G connectivity is a ...

9. Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Android tablet

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is a handy tablet with some nice software features but it's let down by a slippery, plastic build and an expensive price tag. Unless you desperately need the S Pen, buy a Google Nexus 7.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
