New Wacom Tablet

The Wacom Intuos 3 graphic tablet straddles the line between enthusiasts using the Graphire 3 and high-end professionals using Cintiq display tablets. The resolution of the Intuos 3 has doubled to 5080 lines per inch both horizontally and vertically, with excellent response, feel, and accuracy.

The inclusion of programmable buttons on the tablet itself is a boon for anyone frustrated at having to move to the keyboard for common shortcut keys. The 6x8in tablets come with eight programmable keys - four each side and two touch strips that perform scrolling and zooming tasks as well as allowing you to quickly change brush sizes. The buttons and touch strips are customisable on a global or application by application basis.

Other enhancements include a beautifully weighted and totally redesigned pen and base - finally you'll actually use the base, as it no longer falls over every time you knock it! There is also a range of tip styles. The felt tip gives a lovely tactile feel, whereas the inking nib has more travel, giving more control over pressure sensitivity. A wireless optional mouse at around $50 rounds out the package nicely.

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.
