New CD-R drive from Sony

Come May 1 and Sony will have added a new CD-R drive to its line-up -- the $849 CRX120, which includes CD-RW capabilities.

The CRX120 writes at 4X, and reads CD-ROMs at 24X. According to Sony, a full 74 minutes of audio or 650MB of data can be written to CD in less than 19 minutes. The company also claims that CDs can be written, erased and rewritten up to 1000 times "at the full 4X performance level".

The drive features a Tray Load and fits into a standard 5.25in half-height slot, allowing users to replace a CD-ROM drive with the CRX120. The drive has also been designed to connect to an ATAPI IDE interface, an interface card which is commonly already built into PCs, saving users the cost of purchasing an additional interface card, says Sony.

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.

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.
