Why virtualise your NAS environment?
Imaginova Starry Night Enthusiast Version 5
Price$ 159.95 (AUD)
When most city slickers leave the city lights and pollution far behind, it's hard for them not to gaze in awe at the sparkling spectacle of the galaxy stretching out across a clear night sky. Like many amateur astronomers, we usually know the stellar basics - such as the Southern Cross and the Milky Way - but without a guide, we are unable to really appreciate the many other, shall we say, "points of interest" overhead. Starry Night Enthusiast is like having your own personal astronomer to assist with a wealth of well presented information, plus some fantastic features.
Not only can you chart what is happening here and now, but times and dates can be changed to the past and the future, so you can witness major astral events, such as the journey of Halley's Comet. A few more clicks, and you can travel through virtual space to where the comet is now.
If you hover the cursor over an astronomical object, a detailed description appears; plus, you can easily centre, magnify or journey to the object of interest. There are also tools to rotate and change your viewpoint. To get started, I recommend typing in an object or constellation in the find field, or just set the time to the night sky for the evening you wish to view. Best of all - we have a copy of the previous version on this month's cover CD, free for you to try!

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.
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.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
