#7: Kage-Maru (Virtua Fighter)

Kage-Maru represents the ‘spiritual’ side to the ninja – honourable, stoic, silent… and boring. For all his quiet nobility, we find it hard to take Kage-Maru seriously with that ridiculous Richard Garriott headband. No wonder his opponents are always kicking it off – they’re trying to do him a favour!

Despite his questionable dress sense, Kage-Maru is one of the more realistic depictions of ninjas in gaming. His roster of fighting moves is an authentic simulation of Jujutsu; a defensive martial arts style that was purportedly practiced by real-life ninjas in Feudal Japan.

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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.

Taylor Carr


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

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.
