Philips Micro MP3/CD Hi-Fi System

Further bridging the gap between MP3 technology and the mainstream consumer base is Philips's new MC-M250 Micro Hi-Fi System. It's a funky looking unit (whose yellow speaker grills were not too popular with people who saw it in our lab), but its size and functionality make it a good choice for a small bedroom or any other area of the house where space is at a premium. Measuring 26x22cm (DxH), the unit is ideally designed to fit in places such as bookshelves.

It comprises a radio tuner, tape deck and (of course) a CD/MP3 player, which can also recognise CD-RW discs. Its top loading design allows smaller 8cm discs to be played, too.

Also spanning technologies, the unit allows you to make compilation tapes from the CD player at the touch of a button - it seems the good old tape isn't completely off the radar of the major companies. MP3 playback is aided by the large screen that displays ID3 tag information. The two-way speakers provide adequate sound quality and power handling from their small enclosures.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
