PartitionMagic 8.0

Partitioning is possibly the best way to organise data on your PC, allowing you to divide your hard drive into manageable sections for convenience. Partitioning can prevent conflicts, protect data and increase efficiency, among other benefits. Many software packages are available that handle this task and one well-known product is PartitionMagic. Just before we went to press with this issue, Powerquest launched a new version - PartitionMagic 8.0.

New features in the latest release include larger partition support, a file browser that allows users to modify and move files from one partition to another and ‘hot' enlarging of NTFS partitions - no rebooting required. New wizards have been included for creating backups and installing secondary operating systems to help new users overcome their fears of partitioning. Another benefit is the new interface: the GUI has been redesigned to give a Windows XP look and feel.

PartitionMagic 8.0 supports Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
