The need for speed

Practically identical to the Paradise modem of the same name, the Swann also includes answering and fax machine capabilities, which can be used independently of the PC, as well as speakerphone, remote access and call alert functions. This modem distinguishes itself from the others tested with the inclusion of the Office WebWorks CD - which proved very useful. It contains interactive lessons about the Internet as well as a large selection of shareware software and games. For Internet novices, the learning section of the CD starts with the basics - explaining what the Internet is about and then moving on to topics explaining e-mail and Web browsing. A small and basic glossary of terms is also included and the CD also contains a comprehensive listing of ISPs from all over the country. Swann's software bundle includes some of the most popular shareware and freeware programs available, including ICQ and Eudora. It comes with a five-year warranty and is priced at $329.

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.)

Brother PT-P750W

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!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
