Ashampoo PowerUp 3
All-in-one system optimiser Ashampoo PowerUp includes a slew of helpful utilities to make your PC perform faster.
- Good for power users
- Not great for tech novices
Power users will certainly welcome Ashampoo PowerUp, even if it doesn't offer as much advice for those with a less technical background.
Price$ 81.99 (AUD)
All-in-one system optimiser Ashampoo PowerUp includes a slew of helpful utilities to make your PC perform faster, including a Registry Cleaner, bootup optimiser, overall system tuneup tools, and features that customise how you access your network.
In addition to tuneup tools, Ashampoo PowerUp also has options for customising the way that Windows works. These include customising startup and shutdown, Windows logon, the Windows desktop; whether to use animation effects in Windows Vista; and even options for customising Vista's dreaded User Account Control (UAC).
All that is to the good, but Ashampoo PowerUp 3 is pointed more at power users than at less-experienced people looking to tune up their systems.
Ashampoo PowerUp doesn't include detailed advice and wizards - it shows you the options, describes what they do, and let you take it from there. A piece of software such as the identically priced TuneUp Utilities does a better job of not just analysing your system and showing you what it finds, but also of making recommendations, such as which programs to disable from automatic startup.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
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!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
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.
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.
