Creative happy snaps

This 3.2Mp camera is a small and sturdy unit that is perfect for point-and-click situations, and more. It has a built-in flash and a 1.6in LCD viewfinder, and you can even take MPEG4 videos, with audio, until the memory runs out. The camera comes with 16MB of built-in memory, which allows it to capture up to 11 images at its highest resolution of 2048x1536 and up to 45 images at its second lowest setting of 1024x768. Up to 256MB can be added via the SD slot next to the battery chamber, which accommodates either SD or MMC cards.

Powered by two AA batteries, the camera is ideal for travellers who like the convenience of quickly replaceable batteries.

Versatility comes from a 3X optical zoom, a 4X digital zoom, standard tripod mount, long shutter speed (up to eight seconds), macro focus from 10-50cm, and adjustments for white balance, exposure and metering settings. Photos can be downloaded from the camera via its USB 1.1 interface. Photo quality was very good, considering its price range, but not terribly sharp. Overall, the 3200Z is worth considering if you want a compact, easy to use and inexpensive camera for basic happy snaps.

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.

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.
