Epson Stylus Photo 870 and Sony UP-DP10

Two new photo printers - Epson's $799 Stylus Photo 870 and Sony's $680 (ex tax) UP-DP10 - come as close as any that I've seen to achieving this goal. I tested shipping units equipped with pre-production drivers.

In a nutshell: If you're comfortable investing around $700 in a printer that handles only photos, the Sony deserves consideration. It's especially worthwhile if you're satisfied with your conventional printer for documents but want better photos for little loss of desk space. But the Epson's fine print quality, greater versatility, and price give it broader appeal.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


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.
