HP ProOne 400 all-in-one desktop PC

It looks a bit clunky, and some in our office went as far as calling it ugly. But if you're considering a system like the HP ProOne 400, you probably aren't as concerned with looks as you are functionality. It's an all-in-one desktop PC with a 21.5in, Full HD screen, and it even has touch input courtesy of the frame that's tacked onto the front.

Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Windows 8.1 business tablet

Since the release of Intel's Atom Bay Trail platform, lightweight Windows-based tablets have received a much-needed boost in speed and endurance. We noticed that first in mostly consumer offerings, such as the ASUS T100 and Toshiba Encore. Lenovo has also used Bay Trail to good effect in its ThinkPad 10 tablet, which is predominantly a business-oriented device that has many highlights.

Acer B296CL ultra-widescreen LCD monitor

Acer's 29in ultra-widescreen monitor is part of a new breed of monitors that's slightly different from the norm. Rather than offering a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio, the Acer B296CL offers a wider 21:9 ratio, which not only suits most movies a lot better, it's also more conducive to multitasking.

HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 (E7N23PA)

HP has been on a bit of a roll recently in the land of business laptops, with products such as the ZBook 14 and the EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 being a little different from the norm and catering to power users and hybrid seekers, respectively. The 14in EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 Ultrabook is more of a traditional notebook, but distinguishes itself by offering features that are tuned to the needs of big business.

HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One Printer

Buying a cheap printer such as the HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One is, for some people, a spur-of-the-moment decision these days, but it still helps to know what you're getting into when buying a sub-$100 printer. The main selling point of this model (apart from being a printer, scanner and copier) is its ability to print your documents and photos from anywhere, as long as you are connected to the Internet.

Acer TravelMate P645 Ultrabook

The Acer TravelMate P645 may be a 14in Ultrabook, but you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s a 13.3in model at first glance. It has a slight build that ensures it’s not bulky or heavy, and it features clean lines and a thin screen bezel, which give it an understated styling. You can get it in a few different configurations, but the one we are looking at here is the entry-level model, which, of course, is the most affordable option.

HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 tablet (F6B48PA)

It has been a while since we’ve seen a hybrid notebook with a conventional design, but HP’s 11.6-inch EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 Tablet harks back to the days when tablet-convertible PCs had central hinges and screens spun around on the chassis. In a way, it’s refreshing to see this design still being used, and it’s implemented quite well in the Revolve, with a hinge that feels firm, yet reasonably smooth to operate.

HP Spectre 13 Pro Notebook PC (F8Z33PA)

The HP Spectre 13 Pro Ultrabook is blessed with good looks, high-quality construction, and a configuration that allows it to perform well under most office-style scenarios. It’s a fourth-generation Intel Core i7-based unit, but its slight frame doesn’t give that away, and it also features a touchscreen that has one of the highest resolutions on the PC market.

LG UltraPC (Model 13Z940) laptop

If thin and light is what you're looking for in a laptop, then you can't go past LG's 13.3in UltraPC 13Z940. This thing tipped our scales at 971g, and even had Sony VAIO Z enthusiasts commenting on how light and mobile it feels. It's not let down in the speed department either, with LG offering this featherweight in both Core i5 and Core i7 versions. We looked at the Core i7 version for this review.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
