On Wednesday, Logitech announced the Logitech MX Master 3, its next-generation intelligent mouse, and the MX Keys wireless keyboard. Both are expected to ship in September and will cost $100 apiece. 

The 4,000dpi MX Master 3 mouse features a new MagSpeed mouse wheel, which the company claims is 90 percent faster. Unfortunately, like before, the MX Master 3 is optimized for right-handers. 

The MX Master 3 costs the same as its excellent predecessor, the Logitech MX Master 2, and it's visually nearly identical as well. The two-tier mouse features a traditional two-button layout on the right, with the clickable Magspeed wheel. On the left, there’s a “shelf” to rest your right thumb, complete with a gesture button, two more buttons to navigate front and back, and a clickable horizontal scroll wheel. Some mice are designed for your fingers to perch upon, but the MX Master series is designed to cup your palm and to take more of the weight of your hand.

Logitech says the Magspeed wheel is now 90 percent faster and 87 percent more precise, intelligently able to transition between a freewheeling mode for coarse scrolling, and a more precise ratcheted mode for extremely granular mousing.

The MX Master’s traditional selling point remains: Logitech Flow, the Logitech-specific software that allows you to move the mouse “off” the screen of one computer—Mac, Windows or Linux—and onto another. Flow also allows you to cut and paste text between PCs (something that Windows 10’s “cloud clipboard” feature also does, but only between Windows PCs). Logitech’s software also allows you to re-map buttons and contains custom configurations for various software packages.

The MX Master 3 now uses a USB-C interface for charging. Logitech claims you can power the MX Master 3 for three hours on just a one-minute charge, or for 70 days after a full charge.

Logitech designed the new MX Keys keyboard to accompany the MX Master 3. The Flow-compatible MX Keys is a low-profile Bluetooth keyboard designed to be as quiet as possible. Its keys are designed with deep dimples to ease typing. It, too, is powered with USB-C, and can run up to five months with no backlighting.

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.

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.
