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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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

Jack Jeffries


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.

Taylor Carr


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.
