Microsoft has outlined final packaging for the Windows 2000 operating system product line, most of which is due out by the end of this year.

Microsoft has said that the line will include four products:

-- Windows 2000 Server, a network operating system for department file and print functions, Internet use and entry-level application servers. The software will support systems including up to four processors.

-- Windows 2000 Advanced Server will support up to eight processors, and is aimed at critical Web and business-application servers. It will offer integrated clustering and load balancing.

-- Windows 2000 DataCenter Server, aimed at companies with high-end server needs. The software will support additional clustering functions and up to 32 processors.

-- Windows 2000 Professional for mainstream desktop and laptop use will support up to two processors.

The professional, server and advanced products are expected to be out by the end of the year, with the DataCenter server software out 90 to 120 days later, Microsoft said in a statement outlining the packaging options. Pricing will be announced later.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
