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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
