Wireless data projector

At $4000, Panasonic's new PT-LB10NTE data projector is aimed squarely at the business/education markets, with a three-chip LCD engine providing a resolution of 1024x768 pixels at a peak brightness of 2000 lumens.

Wireless isn't new, but the PT-LB10NTE is the first to allow multiple simultaneous connections via its integrated 802.11b module. Up to four users can be given a portion of the projected image, allowing collaboration during presentations without the need for PCs to be wired up (assuming they're all wireless), and you can switch any of the connections to full-screen. For the presenter in a hurry, the PT-LB10NTE also offers a fast warm-up time of around five seconds and automatic digital keystoning.

We also think that the integrated power pack - that runs the fan if you cut the power before the lamp has had time to cool down properly - should be a mandatory component in all projectors. Security features include password protection, control panel lock and on-screen text.

Being wireless makes the PT-LB10NTE ideal for both portable presentations and small-scale installations where the projector is likely to be a shared resource. The relatively slow 802.11b wireless standard limits you to static presentation material, but this is likely to be addressed in future models.

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

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.

MSI PS63

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.
