Intel Play Sound Morpher

Designed for children aged six and above, the Sound Morpher can be carried with you wherever you go and will capture sounds with the press of a button. It can also be used as a sinister spy tool, since the range and clarity of the microphone is quite good.

The unit will record for up to four minutes before running out of storage capacity, but you can download audio to the PC using your sound card's microphone jack and the supplied software. The software is probably the most fun part of the package: you can apply filters to sounds you record, to make friends or foes sound like monsters or other weird creatures. The software facilitates sound editing and can read aloud in a computerised voice any text that you type. Parents will be glad to know that extreme curse words are not tolerated by the program and are immediately deleted.

The sound editing functions of the program include adding effects and various filters to sounds recorded by the Morpher. Cutting and pasting is also facilitated, while markers at the start and end of each beat are placed to make sound remixing less of a chore. The program can also import other uncompressed sound files that may be on your system.

The Sound Morpher is a solid device that seems rugged enough to withstand child's play and is a good introduction to the wonderful world of sound editing. It takes three AAA batteries, not included, and comes with a connector cable, a pair of headphones and a belt-clip.

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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.

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