McAfee Firewall 4.0 (2003)

Traversing the Internet’s highways and byways unguarded is a fool­hardy endeavour. On installation, Firewall 4.0 scans various aspects of the host computer, looking for security holes. It also treats users to a visual trace of given domains, includin...

Creative MegaWorks THX 5.1 550 speakers

These hot new speakers from Creative should be available for purchase towards the end of February and come with the THX seal of approval from LucasArts, guaranteeing quality cinematic audio. If you want the best sound solution for gaming, music or ho...

Virtual PC for Windows 5.0

Virtual PC for Windows seems like a bit of a strange idea at first. After all, you already have a fully functional PC, why bother emulating another?

ViewSonic Wire­less Smart Displays

Imagine being able to turn your desktop PC into a tablet PC. Well, ViewSonic has confirmed its intent to release during the first quarter of 2003 a range of 802.11b wireless smart displays — what it has dubbed airpanels.

Notebooks are convenient for moving from A to B, but the majority of work you do on them is usually conducted near a mains power supply. For users who have let their notebook stretch its mobile legs, the results can sometimes be frustrating.

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.

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.
