Freecom Beatman Flash MP3 Player

The Beatman is a small, square player weighing a mere 44g, and its single AAA battery should last up to nine hours. There’s 64MB of built-in flash memory for storing MP3 or WMA files — enough space for about half an hour’s worth of high-quality songs. Freecom has also, sensibly, left space for a SmartMedia card (not included).

The player has a rectangular LCD screen large enough to show an array of track information and it’s easily navigated. A built-in microphone enables the player to hold up to 17 hours of voice memos. The Beatman’s audio quality is impressive. It can handle CD-quality audio and is bundled with decent Sennheiser headphones. Bundled headphones often result in tinny sound but these ones pump out a lot of power.

Installing via the USB is easy and the Digital Audio Manager software is basically the same as using Internet Explorer. There is no extra functionality at your fingertips — just the basics — so you can upload songs from your PC to player and download songs from player to PC.

MSI GT75 TITAN

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.

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.
