Dicota Hover

It's not as sleek as Apple's Mighty Mouse, nor as obsessively gamer-centric as Razer's Copperhead, but Dicota's Hover mouse has a trick up its sleeve.

Unlike other wireless optical mice, the Hover is entirely battery-free. So you don't need to dock it overnight to avoid finding a dead rodent on your desk in the morning, nor will you find yourself swapping out dead batteries in the middle of an intense online firefight. Instead, the Hover gets what it needs from a special electromagnetic induction mat, which is pretty handy.

We're not quite sure why Dicota has made it so small - after all, travellers probably won't want to carry the special mouse mat around with them - and we did spot a smidgeon of interference when you use it near a CRT, but on the whole, it's an effective solution to the wireless/battery problem.

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 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.
