Logitech's tenkeyless G Pro mechanical keyboard swipes the G810's straightforward style

Finally, a tenkeyless Logitech board that's normal-looking.

Are you a fan of Logitech’s G810 keyboard design but short on desk space? Or maybe you have some hidden hatred of numpads? Exciting news then, as Logitech today announced a new G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. I can only assume there’s no G810-style numeric designation because the G Pro is a tenkeyless board, keeping the G810’s sleek design but ditching a third of its length.

It’s a neat little board. Coming in at 14.2 inches wide compared to the G810’s 17.5, the G Pro is a space saver and a handy travel companion—I was able to stash our review unit in a backpack with room to spare. Logitech’s also given the G Pro a detachable micro-USB cable, making it even more mobile-friendly. No more wrap-and-pray. (Though unfortunately the G Pro doesn’t come with a handy travel bag like HyperX’s FPS Alloy.)

The bad news, at least for some of you: It’s only available with Logitech’s Romer-G switches. The G810 can be had in a Cherry MX variant known as the G610, but no such concession with the G Pro.

Logitech’s also eschewed dedicated media keys on the G Pro. Those functions can still be accessed by way of keyboard shortcuts, but the lack of a separate volume roller/rocker is sorely felt, at least in my day-to-day.

Still, for $130 it’s a decent bargain compared to the G810—a $30 discount just for cutting off the numpad. Full RGB lighting, Logitech software integration, steel back plate, the works. We’ll have a more in-depth review at some point, but for the Venn Diagram overlap of “Romer-G fans” and “tenkeyless fans,” the G Pro looks like a must-have. After all, your only other option is the edgy (I’d say hideous) G410. Hard to go wrong with the G Pro in that case.

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.

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!

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.
