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.

I found Windows 10 to be useful for work as it offers many benefits to business people. The Virtual Desktop on my Lenovo Yoga is a great feature for working on multiple projects. It helps maintain a more efficient workspace by having applications for a particular task or project open in one decluttered desktop then switching to another desktop for a different task. The ability to pin any window or application to all desktops is a welcome update and having a sneaky desktop for social media when the boss isn't looking is also handy.

Once you master the keyboard shortcuts, especially for switching between desktops, Virtual Desktop becomes a vital tool for your work.

The Action Centre notifications are a huge improvement over the bubble-system tray notifications of previous Windows which quickly faded into the ether after they popped up. It also nicely groups them together and is clever enough not to allow individual applications to hog the whole panel.

The quick actions are probably the handiest feature in the Action Centre. They allow for quick and easy access to common Windows tasks and the enabling/disabling of individual features like WiFi or connecting to a VPN.

Ink Workspace Space is getting quite handy - in particular Screen Sketch. This is great for taking screenshots and annotating them before sending them out. It makes getting your point out there a lot easier.

Windows 10 is also great for downtime. The Xbox app is a great companion for your Xbox gaming experience. The home screen layout lets you easily catch up with what your friends have been up to and post comments with the convenience of a keyboard. The recorded game clips work with better video stuttering and buffering performance than more-established streaming sites.

The group function made looking for other gamers very simple by just clicking on a game title. It’s a great way to bring strangers together. Connecting the app to the Xbox console was a breeze and I like the ability to stream my Xbox console to my PC when the TV is being used. 

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.

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 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.)

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!

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.
