Eye catching flat-panel: X215

The X215 is quite simply the sexiest flat-panel we’ve reviewed. There’s a real lack of ostentation in the sleek minimalist design, and the blue-tinted glass front serves a purpose beyond aesthetics, incorporating AG Neovo’s own display-enhancing technology.

The screen offers a maximum resolution of 1024x768 twinned with a disappointing dot pitch of 0.297mm, but the average 250 candelas is boosted by a bright 400:1 contrast ratio. It’s therefore possible to view the display in all lighting conditions. There’s a choice of VGA analog connection, S-Video or DVI for users with pure digital support on the back of their graphics cards. Obviously the quality — especially the sharp text — degrades if you hook up via the VGA option, but it remains readable nonetheless.

A minimal features set means there’s no swivel option — you can only tilt the screen to get the optimal viewing angle. One plus is the comprehensive OSD menu that gives users a fair amount of control over display settings.

Our DisplayMate tests revealed a good image despite average specs, which may be due to AG Neovo’s own technology. The crystal optic filter in the reinforced glass front reduces glare, increases the viewing angle and provides a better colour spectrum. You know you’re looking at a quality display when you see the X215, but we’d like to know how well this model can perform with better specifications.

In brief: AG Neovo X215
There are 15in flat-panels out there with more specifications per dollar, but none that performs as well. Besides, the X215 isn’t just about image quality — it’s about impressing your clients with the coolest office hardware, and in that respect the X215 can’t fail.

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.

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.
