Replay Radio 5.3

There are a number of legal and not-so-legal ways to record digital music - ripping it from a CD, cassette or vinyl being the most obvious. But it's only recently become possible to create permanent copies of the tunes and broadcasts you enjoy online...

StudioLine Photo 2.10

Titularly speaking, it's reminiscent of both a cheap 'n' cheerful clothes store and an Eighties hair product - but these aren't StudioLine's only plus points.

Microsoft Student 2006

This companion to Microsoft Office is designed to help school kids research and write up coursework with the maximum efficiency. Put together in concert with the national curriculum, it covers topics for both primary and secondary schools.

AverMedia MR 800 USB Radio

PC TV cards sometimes have built-in radio receivers; which is great for desktop PCs but not so good for notebooks. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise - after all, portables aren't always used in environments that are conducive to radio use.

Ricoh Caplio GX8

The main reason you'll want to get your hands on the Caplio GX8 is the number of pixels it packs--8.2 megapixels for just $799!

Entry-level graphics tablet

Wacom has up­-dated its line of pressure-sensitive pens and digital pads with the release of the Graphire3 series. The entry-level tablet has an active area of roughly 4x5in (smaller than its 6x8in sibling) and is aimed at amateurs.

VideoWave Movie Creator

VideoWave was originally launched by MGI in the late 1990s and is now available under the Roxio umbrella. Roxio has cottoned on to the growing interest in rediscovering footage on analog videotapes, so there’s as much emphasis on transferring recordi...

TDK LPCW-50 Label Printer

Templates to create disc labels abound but usually you need to output them on special preprinted labels and then manually apply them -- not the easiest of tasks. Wrinkles and poorly positioned labels often result, spoiling the final effect and, claim...

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.

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.

Aysha Strobbe

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.
