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.

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!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

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

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.
