Everio GZ-MG135

With a suggested retail price of $899, the Everio GZ-MG135 is one of the cheaper HDD/SD hybrid camcorders on the market. For your hard-earned clams, you get a 30GB hard drive which can store up to 37 hours of standard-definition footage, a 34x optica...

Canon DC220

While they will never be loved by any self-respecting videophile, DVD camcorders continue to attract plenty of buyers, even in the face of newer and superior technology. Perhaps it's the convenience of slotting a disc straight into a player, or the c...

Acer Aspire Gemstone 5920G (302G20N)

Is it just us, or are notebook vendors getting a tad 'precious' when it comes to naming their offspring lately? In recent years, we've been wooed by the DreamBook, JoyBook, and even the LifeBook (what's next? The BlingBook?). With a grandstanding nam...

Toshiba Tecra A9 (PTS52A-00V00F)

As we march boldly into the 21st century, mobility and travel have become important components of most global businesses. This constantly prowling workforce has seen the big and clunky notebook of old fall from favour; to be replaced with a sleeker, ...

Lenovo 3000 V200

The Lenovo 3000 V200 is a typical business notebook. It ticks all the boxes you would expect from such a machine; which is to say it's smart, functional and just a teensy bit on the bland side. Although slightly bulky for an ultraportable unit, its s...

Slim (GSA-E50L)

If there's one good thing to come out of the next-gen DVD format war, it's the plummeting price range of standard-definition optical drives, which are now more affordable than ever. Those who have yet to commit to either Blu-ray or HD DVD are truly s...

PSP (Slim and Lite)

Portable gaming devices are curiously fickle inventions. From the desperately morphing N-Gage to the triumphantly evolving Gameboy, they rarely stay in one size, shape or colour for long. It would seem that console manufacturers are unwilling to leav...

Space Ace HD

It's altogether likely that you've never heard of Space Ace. Originally released in 1984 by Don Bluth Studios, it was an unofficial follow-up to the hugely popular laser disc arcade game Dragon's Lair ...and regrettably, it has forever lived in its b...

Panasonic HDC-SX5

Keeping up with the camcorder industry can be a pretty tough undertaking. Sometimes, it feels like a new video format is launched every other week, with no end to the madness in sight. Whenever we turn our backs, another form of recordable media leap...

Cyberlink PowerDirector 6.0

The nonlinear editing process can be a daunting prospect for first-time filmmakers. From correcting shaky footage to applying subliminal transitions, the huge array of options - both practical and artistic - are often baffling. Cyberlink, better know...

BenQ Joybook S32 (BV13)

Finding a notebook that stands out from the crowd is like searching for a needle in the proverbial haystack. While there are always slight variables to speed, portability, battery life and style, the majority of competitively priced models possess fe...

Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra

If you regularly watch movies on your notebook or PC, then you're doubtlessly familiar with CyberLink's PowerDVD already. For close to a decade, the multimedia company has been a stalwart of video playback, offering a fuss-free software player with p...

In Pictures: Halo 3

There's no denying it -- Halo 3 is the biggest videogame in history. No other game has had as much hype, built-up fan anticipation nor the marketing push (try $10 million in the US alone) as the last chapter of the premiere franchise in console gamin...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
