Dell Inspiron 700m

A wide-aspect screen and very good performance are highlights of Dell's 1.9kg Inspiron 700m laptop. The screen is small, measuring just 12.1" diagonally, but its wide-aspect ratio and dense native resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels let you see more of ...

ASUS W5A

A swivelling Webcam and an all-white carbon-fibre case highlight the ASUS W5A, an ultraportable laptop weighing just 1.8 kilograms (not including its power adapter). Vanilla-hued laptops are not my favourite, because of the smudge factor if nothing e...

Acer TravelMate 3000

The Acer TravelMate 3000 comes with two batteries, is small enough that you can pick it up with one hand and comes at a reasonable price. On the other hand, it lacks a built-in optical drive and the keyboard is uncomfortable.

HP Pavilion dv4000

One of these days I'm going to buy a laptop that's a lot more multimedia savvy than my four-year-old Dell Inspiron 2500. When I do, I will seriously consider a portable like the inexpensive HP Pavilion dv4000.

Dell Inspiron 6000

You can see more on the Dell Inspiron 6000's wide screen than on most other 15.4" displays, thanks to its WUXGA resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. In fact, you can work with higher-resolution photographs, more spreadsheet columns, and more tiled docum...

Acer TravelMate 8100 Series

Wider screen. Sleeker case. Easier upgrades. The Acer TravelMate 8100 offers several advantages over its predecessor, the impressive TravelMate 8000.

Toshiba Satellite A65-S126

The Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 is a great deal for the sheer number of features: a 15" screen, combination DVD/CD-RW drive and a 60GB hard drive.

Sharp PC-AR50

Because it has only one internal media bay, the Sharp PC-AR50 measures a relatively thin 1.3 inches tall and weighs only 5.9 pounds, not including the AC adapter. You can hot-swap the floppy drive and the 8X/4X/24X CD-RW drive you get at this price, ...

Dell Inspiron 2500

For a miserly $2599, Dell's new budget laptop for consumers and small businesses comes equipped with a 12.1-inch screen, easy-to-reach parts, and an extra set of dual-purpose buttons that play music CDs or launch applications. If you don't like that ...

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.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

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.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

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!
