Asus has released two new notebooks powered by Intel’s Core i7 processor. The G60J and M60J models both feature a 16-inch high definition display.

Intel only recently announced the quad-core i7 chips and Asus has been quick to integrate the new technology which aims to address the increasing need for multiple tasks such as video editing, gaming and immersive applications.

The G60J, with immersive audio reproduction, runs on a nVidia GeForce GTX260M graphics card with 1GB video random access memory (VRAM). The model offers Turbo Boost technology for CPU performance, Atlec Lansing speakers, EAX Advanced HD 4.0 and 64 sounds effects for supported games. The Asus G Series is fitted with an illuminated keyboard that enables gamers to play into night. For users who are looking for a more compact version of this model, Asus also offers the 15.6-inch G51J.

The M60J uses a GeForce GT 240M graphics card with 1GB DDR3 VRAM and features high capacity storage for multimedia entertainment. Its Altec Lansing speakers have Dolby 2 Home Theatre certification.

The M60J has a dual hard disk drive, which provides up to 1TB of storage. It also features Al TouchMedia, a one-touch multimedia centre with a control panel that combines both hardware and software interfaces to control multimedia such as photographs, music and the playback of videos. Users will be able create playlists, modify pictures and watch movies and videos effortlessly.

The laptop’s palm rest and lid are made with aluminum to resist everyday wear such as scratches. The keyboard design features concave key-caps and tighter key-spacing, which helps minimise dust accumulation and improves water resistance

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.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
