Fujifilm MX-1500

Not only are digital cameras getting sharper and cheaper, as our digital camera feature says, but they're also improving in the style arena. This 1.5 megapixel camera (that's 1280 x 1024 maximum resolution) missed the deadline for our feature, but slots into the "under $1500" category with its $999 price tag. Based on specs, the MX-1500 compares favourably to the models in this category, particularly in respect to resolution and price.

Pocket-sized, the MX-1500 is well organised with a neat thumbwheel on the back offering access to the camera's various functions and modes (self timer, playback, manual and automatic). Play-back mode lets you view and delete your images on the 1.8in LCD screen. The camera also features a built-in flash plus a macro mode for close-ups (a 2x digital zoom is also offered).

The MX-1500 comes with a 4MB SmartMedia card that can hold up to 22 images taken in the "basic" format (compressed at a higher rate than the "fine" and "normal" modes). A serial connection is offered to upload images to your PC, and the camera runs on two AA batteries (a recharger is bundled with the package).

The MX-1500 produces great images with excellent flesh tones in both outdoor and indoor shots (with and without the flash). One nice feature is the ability to add special effects to images while they are still held on the camera - for example, you can transform a colour photograph to black and white, or sepia tone.

In short, the MX-1500 provides value, versatility, ease of use and great quality images for both electronic and paper publishing.

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!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
