The budget Android tablet is a very similar device to last year's Nexus 7 but with the addition of a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The MeMo Pad HD 7 has a 7in IPS screen with a resolution of 1280x800, a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera for video calls and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera that also doubles as a 720p HD video recorder.

The tablet is powered by a quad-core Cortex A7 processor, has 1GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal storage. There's also a microSD card slot to expand the memory.

The ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 has a non-removable lithium polymer battery that the company says will last for up to 10 hours of video playback.

The device runs the latest 4.2 'Jelly Bean' version of Google's Android operating system.

The $199 retail price makes the MeMo Pad HD 7 tablet one of the cheapest Android devices on the market.

The ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 is available now through authorised ASUS retailers and channel resellers in grey, blue, white, pink and green colour variants.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
