GTR - FIA GT Racing Game

GTR - FIA GT Racing Game started life as a mod for EA's Formula 1 2002 racing sim. Based on the FIA's real life GT Racing series in Europe, the mod proved a hit and became wildly popular. It didn't take long for the SimBin development team (the guys ...

ProjectionDesign Action! Model One MKII

It's tough being a home theatre addict. No sooner have we forked out big bucks for a new piece of hardware than a newer, cheaper version with more features arrives. While this is bad for those with ink still drying on the till receipt, it's great for...

Hitachi PJ-TX100 LCD Projector

Hot on the heels of the five-star Panasonic AE700 projector comes yet another low-priced, quality LCD-based model, the Hitachi PJ-TX100. In fact the circa $5,000 home theatre market is burgeoning and if you've been holding off making that big-screen ...

Magnepan speaker system

American loudspeaker manufacturer Magnepan is famed for its stylish, planar-magnetic, "Magneplanar" flat-panel speakers. The problem is, Maggies tend to be rather large. Without a traditional woofer-type cone to move air, they require a large surface...

Panasonic PT-AE700 LCD projector

The last couple of years have seen a change in the way electronics manufacturers approach designing their home theatre devices and plasma TVs; surround-sound systems and projectors are all more user-friendly than ever as they jostle for the consumer'...

Infocus Screenplay 5000 LCD projector

For LCD, it's a case of back to the future. The Screenplay 5000 home theatre projector from Infocus is the first one we've looked at from this company that makes use of an LCD projection system instead of the more common (at least when it comes to In...

DVD power play

If you've recently bought a DVD drive or even a graphics card, you probably received a bundled version of either PowerDVD or WinDVD. Why, then, would you want to go out and buy the same software? Well, the bundled version is almost always a generatio...

PC Games: Virtual Skipper 3

Virtual Skipper 3 is the game that takes sailing off the water and into the bedrooms of regular people. Virtual Skipper 3 is a yacht-racing simulator that places you at the helm of different classes of racing yachts at one of six international locale...

Test drive a Mini today: iPod mini

Apple's iPod MP3 player - or, more correctly, digital audio player, as it plays more than just MP3 files - has become the digital device to be seen with, thanks to Apple's typically careful eye for blending style and tech-nology. Now Apple has gone a...

Yamaha RX-V750

Yamaha's trademark orange LCD makes this receiver a little different from others. Aside from that, the RX-V750 is a reasonably ordinary-looking machine. The fascia is busy and two smallish selector knobs allow for quick and easy mode and input select...

Entry-level Linux: Linspire OS 4.5

Version 4.5 of the Linux-based Linspire operating system (pre-viously known as LindowsOS) tries hard to be as friendly and simple to use as possible - a feat it accomplishes with gusto.

PC games: Need For Speed Underground

I openly admit I’m bit of an elitist when it comes to racing games and I’ll casually slam any game that doesn’t feature authentic handling and fully licensed vehicles or require the concentration of a fighter pilot to drive the thing out of the pits....

PC games: Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII

The latest addition to EA’s addictive World War II shoot-’em-up introduces a slightly off-the-wall element to the ‘traditional’ wartime weapons of the era. And to be completely honest, I was worried some of the crazy sounding weapons and vehicles wou...

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
