For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Microsoft Security Essentials met my basic security needs. Battery life was quoted at five hours and I got close to that figure.

Bluetooth headphones paired with the tablet worked well, and Web browsing was fast using the Internet Explorer (IE) app.

The 10.1in touchscreen has a resolution of 1366x768. It is bright and clear, displays accurate colours and contrast, and text is sharp and easy to read. However, I would love to see a screen resolution upgrade in future revisions.

The tablet has dual built-in stereo speakers that produce clean audio. Gaming is not a strong point, but Microsoft Mahjong did work fine! SD video playback was OK but HD video playback was not fluid.

The included stylus touch pen is useful where precision is crucial or desirable. The tablet is reasonably compact and light but feels rugged in the hand. I was impressed with the balance between build quality and mobility.

The speed and responsiveness of the Q572 is OK for a dual-core CPU running at a speed of 1.0GHz. The 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD drive helped too. However, as the installation of Windows 8 updates took forever, I’m sure that future revisions would benefit from a faster CPU.

Once set up, the Windows 8 Pro touch interface is fairly intuitive with minimal lag. The on screen keyboard is large, easy to type on, and responsive. The fan produces a low hum but the Q572 was only moderately warm during normal use.

Overall, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q572 comes recommended for a business user but better alternatives are available for a home user.

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.

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

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!
