CES - No light? Take the photo anyway

Sometimes, you just don't have adequate light for your photo, even if you carry around thousands of dollars' worth of lighting equipment (which most of us don't).

Sleek Sony desktop makes its mark

Fashion mavens and other demanding aesthetes should find little fault with Sony's latest all-in-one PC: The US$2100 VAIO VGC-LS1 is gorgeous. I looked at a shipping model, and its design was superb--trumping even the Apple iMac--but our tests indicat...

Sony Cyber-shot DSCW7

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCW7 has a 7.2 megapixel CCD, which is plenty for a point-and-shoot camera. It sports a 3X optical zoom and a big, 2.5" LCD, and forgoes extensive scene modes in favour of some manual controls.

AMD dual-core chip delivers power boost

AMD fans need wait no longer for dual-core desktop processors -- they're ready now. And in our exclusive tests of an AMD reference system, we found that it beat Intel's dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition across the board.

Pentium Extreme Edition 840

Our tests show Intel's new dual-core desktop processors should deliver some real benefits when used with software designed to take advantage of the two cores, or when you're performing multiple tasks simultaneously--virus scanning while surfing the W...

The 3.5X optical lens on Nikon's new $900 Coolpix 8400 starts at 24mm--the widest angle in its class, and excellent for shooting massive monuments and vast landscapes.

High-capacity DVDs based on blue laser technology are still a way off for consumers, but video professionals may soon get their hands on the new storage technology.

TVs of the Future: Flat and Huge

Bigger, brighter, and unwired--that's what the new crop of flat-panel TVs from LG Electronics, Samsung, and Sharp promises for consumers in 2004. But don't rush out to the store just yet: Many of the most exciting models are at least a few months awa...

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.

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.
