Reuseable digital notepad: ACECAD DigiMemo A501

If you regularly jot down meeting information or fill out forms, and being able to digitally archive them sounds interesting, take note.

The ACECAD DigiMemo A501 looks like a clipboard but does much more.

Begin by writing on a paper pad (up to 12mm thick and A5 size is supported) with the supplied digital inking pen and the DigiMemo underneath saves the text or drawings to 8MB of in-built storage or to an optional CompactFlash card. The DigiMemo and the pen's own sensor triangulate what you write to output what in our tests, proved to be quite an accurate result.

A small monochrome LCD window located on the left-hand side of the DigiMemo also relays data for page numbers and page contents. Buttons directly underneath are used to navigate, delete and insert new pages.

Once you have finished writing on a page of paper, connect the DigiMemo via USB to a PC to transfer the pages across. Text or diagrams are saved as a JPG and BMP images or a text-editable e-Book/digital page can be created within the ACECAD proprietary software. We found the software easy to use, but limited by the fact that other parties need the ACECAD software to read e-Book or digital pages.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
