HP, Iomega to release new CD-RWs

Hewlett-Packard today announced it will release two new CD-ReWritable drives in October, a new USB model, offering "ease of use", and a new SCSI model for users seeking high-speed performance.

The HP CD-Writer Plus 8210e, expected to hit the streets at a price of $799, features Plug and Play ease of use through a USB connection, and writes data at up to 4x, and reads data at up to 6x. Being an external drive with USB, Hewlett-Packard says the new drive will appeal to users seeking to easily move a CD-RW drive between PCs.

The new internal SCSI drive, the HP CD-Writer Plus 9200i, sits at the top of Hewlett-Packard's now nine-model-strong CD-RW range. Priced at $999, the 9200i offers writing speeds of up to 8x, and reading speeds of up to 32x.

Iomega last week announced that later this year will see the release its first CD-RW drive, the ZipCD ($499).

The ZipCD, an internal E-IDE drive, will be the first optical storage product from Iomega, and will write data at up to 4x, and read data at up to 24x, says the company.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
