We're just going to leave this here...

Is this going to be one of the internet's biggest hoaxes? Let's hope not. But kudos for thinking of the concept.

This could all be an elaborate spoof from a Getplox.com. We don't care, just this image made us feel like giddy 6 year olds again.

Plox told us...

"Our new Star Wars Death Star speaker is an officially licensed product with some fantastic technology inside, including unique NFC codes to guarantee authenticity of the product!...

They’re available to pre-order from 2 September and release in October this year."

We've no other info.

There have been fan-made and unofficial variants created before. But this claims to be the real deal.

For now we'll dream the dream and review it on arrival in our offices.

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 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.
