Reuseable digital notepad: ACECAD DigiMemo A501

If you regularly jot down meeting information or fill out forms, and being able to digitally archive them sounds interesting, take note.

The ACECAD DigiMemo A501 looks like a clipboard but does much more.

Begin by writing on a paper pad (up to 12mm thick and A5 size is supported) with the supplied digital inking pen and the DigiMemo underneath saves the text or drawings to 8MB of in-built storage or to an optional CompactFlash card. The DigiMemo and the pen's own sensor triangulate what you write to output what in our tests, proved to be quite an accurate result.

A small monochrome LCD window located on the left-hand side of the DigiMemo also relays data for page numbers and page contents. Buttons directly underneath are used to navigate, delete and insert new pages.

Once you have finished writing on a page of paper, connect the DigiMemo via USB to a PC to transfer the pages across. Text or diagrams are saved as a JPG and BMP images or a text-editable e-Book/digital page can be created within the ACECAD proprietary software. We found the software easy to use, but limited by the fact that other parties need the ACECAD software to read e-Book or digital pages.

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.

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!

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.
