  • Price

    TBA (AUD)

NOTE: Pricing in this review is in UK currency.

7digital.com is a music store offering WMA, ACC and MP3 files for download. WMA files start at 79 pence (p) but feature digital rights management (DRM) technology, while MP3 files are DRM-free and priced at 99p.

  • Download various audio formats
  • Sell your own music online

The company also offers indiestore.com, a service that allows anyone to create their own download store through which they can sell their own records. In comparison, iTunes, Amazon and the other big-name stores won't deal with unsigned acts or labels. Up to four tracks can be made available for sale.

7Digital.com offers two types of accounts: Starter is free, while Pro requires a one-off registration fee of £75. Both accounts let you set prices yourself, but any tracks sold from a Pro account qualify for inclusion in the charts. Note that 7Digital takes a 30 per cent cut on any tracks sold with a Starter account; a 20 per cent slice is taken on songs sold using a Pro account.

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.)

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!
