Amiga set to ride again

If the last time you heard the name Amiga was back in the nineties, you wouldn't be blamed for thinking the company went the same way as the Commodore 64 (the company which originally owned Amiga). While the company has had a chequered past and its parent companies have folded, Amiga, under the Gateway 2000 umbrella, is planning to launch its first product since 1991.

According to Amiga's managing director Petro Tyschtschenko, the company still has as many as 500,000 loyal fans organised into clubs worldwide. And all these fans have been waiting patiently for the next multimedia desktop product following the A1200.

It is still early days, with the product not to be finalised until later this year. Features will include 24-bit colour, support for TV and SVGA, real time animation and DVD-ROM. It will also include network centric architecture, Java support, and support all new digital interface standards. The company has also announced a partnership with Canadian-based QNX software, which will see the software become the basis of the operating system, with additional user interface enhancements and increased multimedia support.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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