Pros

  • Quick processor

  • Price

    $ 299.00 (AUD)

Battery Life

Aside from raw performance, battery life is the other area where the Y7 shows its stripes. The 4000mAh battery absolutely lives up to its potential. Most days, we’d make it through a full ten hours of use without even hitting the halfway mark on the battery bar.

The Bottom Line

Compared to Huawei’s Y5, the Y7 is clearly both the better phone and an option that absolutely justifies the 50% increase in asking price. A much sharper and brighter display, longer-lasting battery and beefier camera make it a bargain phone you’ll want to root for.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

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.

MSI PS63

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.
