We're just going to leave this here...

Is this going to be one of the internet's biggest hoaxes? Let's hope not. But kudos for thinking of the concept.

This could all be an elaborate spoof from a Getplox.com. We don't care, just this image made us feel like giddy 6 year olds again.

Plox told us...

"Our new Star Wars Death Star speaker is an officially licensed product with some fantastic technology inside, including unique NFC codes to guarantee authenticity of the product!...

They’re available to pre-order from 2 September and release in October this year."

We've no other info.

There have been fan-made and unofficial variants created before. But this claims to be the real deal.

For now we'll dream the dream and review it on arrival in our offices.

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.

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.
