It's a solidly-constructed molded plastic device that fits the left hand, with a number of switches set at the thumb and each fingertip. In use, your hand just rests still on the desk, with plenty of wrist support, rather than jumping around all over the keyboard. It's very comfortable, and because your fingers hardly even have to move, control is very direct.

The Claw can be programmed to emulate any key or combination of keys with each of its nine buttons. Connecting directly between any non-USB keyboard and the computer, it requires no software and will run quite happily under Linux or Windows. One minor quibble is that the connector could make it difficult to access one of the USB ports on some computers.

In action, the Claw took about 10 minutes to get used to, after which control felt easier and more natural than using the keyboard (the mouse is still used with the other hand). This is a controller that definitely has a chance to capture the hearts and minds of the first-person shooter set.

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!

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.
