Samsung Series 7 (UA55C7000)

Samsung's Series 7 (UA55C7000) is the best edge-lit LED television we've seen. It doesn't have the deep inky black levels of a high-end plasma television, but its colour reproduction is good and 2D video looks great. The UA55C7000's motion control handles sports and wildlife footage well, but some movies can seem slightly jittery when using default settings. 3D video playback is a novel inclusion that adds extra depth and immersion, but we'd wait a while before purchasing a television purely for 3D video. In short, don't purchase this TV for 3D -- purchase it because it's good at almost everything else.

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.

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!

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.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
