Get creative and get burning

Got a burning desire to back-up data or create your own CDs? Creative Pacific thinks it has just the thing for you - a new $649 internal CD burner from Creative Technology.

The CD-RW Blaster 2224 writes at 2x (that's up to 300Kbps), and reads CD-ROM data at 24x. That holds an advantage over other drives on the market, says Kamil Gurgen, marketing manager for Creative Pacific: "The current generation of CD burners have a very slow read speed making them unproductive for general purpose use, thus requiring the customer to have a second high speed CD-ROM just for data reading."

Multimedia CDs including photos, video and music, can be created with the Blaster 2224 utilising Easy CD Creator software, which is included with the drive. Additionally, DirectCD software, which is also bundled, allows for users to drag-and-drop files onto a CD as easily as with a floppy disk, the company says.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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

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

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
