Nokia 2600 Classic

Although the Nokia 2600 Classic has a creaky case, possesses limited internal memory and suffers from slow menu navigation, its features and low price generally make it worth considering.

ASUS F6V-3P182E

The 13.3in ASUS F6V-3P182E has an arty lid design, a great variety of ports and could have been a strong choice for non-business users on the move. However its major flaw is also its unique selling point: a built-in smell.

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 (275854M)

The Lenovo ThinkPad W700 (275854M) is a mobile workstation that features a speedy processor, superb usability and a powerful graphics card. However, it has a relatively slow 5400rpm hard drive.

Samsung YP-Q1 (16GB)

Samsung's YP-Q1 is a flash-based portable media player that has plenty of features at a fair price. Unfortunately, it suffers from an occasionally laggy interface and a lack of drag-and-drop functionality.

Kingston DataTraveler 150 (64GB)

It doesn't have flashy extras (excuse the pun) or built-in encryption, but the Kingston DataTraveler 150 provides 64GB (60GB formatted) of relatively fast flash storage for a great cost per gigabyte of $4.98.

ASUS Travelite HS-1000W

The ASUS Travelite HS-1000W is a wireless headset that operates on the 2.4GHz frequency band. While it is portable and produces plenty of volume, the headphone speakers themselves are quite small, limiting the quality of the audio.

Fujitsu LifeBook T5010

The Fujitsu LifeBook T5010 is a 13.3in tablet that comes with lots of quality hardware in a small package. Unfortunately it generates too much heat, making it unpleasant to use.

Western Digital My Passport Studio II

The Western Digital My Passport Studio II may use the same boring design as the My Passport Elite 320GB and the My Passport Elite, but it is different in two big ways -- it's fatter and it's more versatile.

Lenovo ThinkPad W700 (27585GM)

The Lenovo ThinkPad W700 is a very powerful -- and expensive -- 17in desktop replacement notebook with a built-in Wacom digitiser pad and RAID 0–enabled hard drives. If you're looking for a laptop that can handle high-end graphics, crunch engin...

Western Digital My Passport Elite

Western Digital's My Passport Elite is a 500GB external hard drive that's faster and cheaper than the 500GB Seagate FreeAgent Go, but it doesn't look as stylish.

HP Compaq 6730b

The HP Compaq 6730b is a sub-$1500 notebook designed for use in the office. With its easy-to-use keyboard and good range of expansion ports, this laptop is well worth considering as a relatively cheap desktop replacement.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
