Acer Aspire Predator

Acer has gone all-out audacious with the Predator PC, which is aimed at hardcore gamers and fans of all things orange. It has more moulded plastic than a Honda Civic at La Perouse on a Sunday night, and the plastic on the Predator's case, like the pl...

BenQ E2200HD

BenQ is the first vendor we've seen to jam a 1920x1080-resolution panel into a 21.5in widescreen monitor frame, and the results are definitely pleasing. Compared to a regular 22in LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1680x1050, you get an extra 30...

Fujitsu Lifebook L1010

There is more to this Centrino 2-certified 14.1in laptop than meets the eye. It might seem like it's just for those who want something shiny and stylish, but beneath its fingerprint-prone exterior is a configuration that will easily deal with most da...

HP EliteBook 6930P (FW086PA)

There's no doubt about it, the 6930P is ideal for the road warrior. Not only does its 14.1in screen size straddle the fence when it comes to user comfort and portability, its battery life is stellar. But what's most impressive about the EliteBook is ...

KWorld PlusTV /DVBT USB Stick (380U)

Unlike KWorld's 399U, which is a dual digital TV tuner, the 380U is only a single tuner. It has a USB 2.0 interface on one end and an antenna port on the other end, but it's not easy to install and its software interface, like the 399U's, is very poo...

KWorld PlusTV DVBT DualView (399U)

It's easy to turn your PC or notebook into a TV with a USB-based digital TV tuner device, and KWorld's is special in that it is a dual-tuner device. It's compact and it doesn't get warm after prolonged periods of use. But it's severely let down by it...

The Internet conundrum for commercial TV

The Internet is only now making the major TV stations think long and hard about how they are going to hold onto viewers. Geez guys, it's not like people have been downloading shows since before the good old days of Kazaa or anything like that.

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.

Aysha Strobbe

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.
