Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP

Nintendo’s new Game Boy Advance SP is targeted at adult gamers and incorporates a flip-top design, rechargeable battery and lighting features intended to extend its portability. The unit is scheduled for release in Australia on 28 March.

The new Game Boy’s changes are almost entirely aesthetic. Beneath the hood, it’s the same Game Boy Advance system and it will run all previously released games. With the unit’s sleek new look — it will debut in metallic cobalt and platinum — Nintendo hopes to lure business travellers, university students and other players willing to pay a bit more (almost $200) for appearance.

The screen is a 2.9in LCD with front lighting, but the unit itself will be one of the smallest gaming handhelds available, with dimensions of 25x85x80mm. It weighs around 142g.

One major change in the system is its rechargeable lithium ion battery, which Nintendo officials estimate will handle 18 hours of continuous play with the unit’s light off, or 10 with it on. Recharging takes three hours.

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.
