Gothic

Welcome to the mining colony of Khorinis. War with the local orcs has forced the king to decree that all prisoners must toil in the mines for the good of the kingdom. To keep the prisoners in, the king's mages cast a magical barrier around the colony - but the spell extended the barrier farther than the mages intended. It will be your mission to find a way to destroy the magical barrier and free the innocent from within. How you do it is up to you.

You can join three major camps: the main mining camp, a camp ruled by mages, and a camp of cultists who believe their god will save them. You will create your character through your actions, rather than by choosing a class or stats. If you want to be a mage, you'll have to make the right friends and do the right favours, possibly making powerful enemies along the way.

The unintuitive control scheme in the preview version couldn't tarnish the polished graphics, sweet sound, and immersive feel. If the rest of the game is as interesting as this tiny little taste, then PC RPG fans are in for a treat.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

MSI GT76

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.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
