That’s A Lot Of Games! Narrow It Down For Me

Of those, the big headliner is probably Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a portable entry in the popular Uncharted action-adventure series that will tie in with the PS3 Uncharted games. Other big titles in the launch catalog include racing game Wipeout 2048 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, but don't miss out on cool downloadable games like Super StarDust Delta.

When Can I Get it And What Does It Cost?

The Vita launches in North America on February 22nd and the entry-level model (Wi-Fi only) will set you back $250. Sony’s also selling a 3G model that will cost you $300, with the optional AT&T data plan costing you another $15 a month for 250MB of data, or $30 a month for 3GB -- identical to the iPad 3G data plans. The Playstation Vita should be available at most game stores and large retailers, though you may want to pre-order a Vita if you want to guarantee you’ll be playing yours on launch day.

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.

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.

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.
