Watch Apple’s Oct 16 launch event live

A new iPad is expected to take on Google’s upcoming Nexus tablet in the coming days

Apple is expected to announce new versions of its Mac computers and notebooks come 16 October, but the device that has people waiting with bated breath is the follow up to the company’s iPad Air.

The revamped iPad will have stiff competition from Google, if a Forbes report pans out. Word has it Google will finally take the wraps off its Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone tomorrow morning, at about the same Apple will unveil the iPad Air 2.

Google isn’t holding a launch event, with the tech giant predicted to turn to its blog for the announcement.

Apple is hosting an event at the Town Hall auditorium located on its campus in California. The best part: Apple is streaming the event live, which means you’ll be able to watch the announcement as it happens.

Fans who cannot get up at 4am can keep tabs on the Good Gear Guide site, which will be covering the event extensively as it happens, along with recaps of the new products.

Who knows, there might be another “one more thing” moment.

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.

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.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

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!
