Would you buy this?

It's the gadget nobody needs and everybody wants. Like the iPad, which was misunderstood at the time of its launch, most people don't yet know how a smartwatch will benefit them, and if the hefty investment is worth their time.

Apple has proven it can be. The company's smartwatch acts like a sidekick to the iPhone. It gleans the device's notifications and technologies, and then presents the findings on the prime real estate of wrists.

Some unique features set it apart and help make a case for the 'need' of a smartwatch. The heart sensor draws a lot of appeal because it helps measure how intense a workout is without interrupting it. Apple has also put the technology to work in one of the most intimate ways imaginable.

The pulse of your heart can be sent to another Apple Watch owner. The heart sensor is used to measure a heart beat, while the Watch's vibrating 'taptic' engine recreates the pulse on wrists. Sending this biological rhythm to a loved one says "I'm thinking of you" in terms more powerful than digital text and animations.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
