Would you buy this?

Roxio's PhotoSuite 7.0 allows you to import, organise, edit and share digital photos. You can enhance or modify images, and create slideshows with music, transitions and special effects - with minimum fuss.

Other key enhancements include the ability to quickly import photos and video clips from a digital camera or camcorder, as well as the way you can alter a collection of photos simultaneously. PhotoSuite 7.0 can now turn multiple photos of a landscape into a panoramic scene and burn pictures, video clips and audio files to a CD, DVD or video CDs (with animated menus, buttons, chapters and background themes). Unfortunately, the software's core image-editing features are very limited. Inexperienced users will probably welcome PhotoSuite's task-driven interface, because you can apply a range of special effects quickly with a simple mouse-click.

Those familiar with image-editing apps will be disappointed, however, when they discover that they cannot access colour properties, add or delete layers or extend the workspace. In addition, there are no Web-optimisation controls for preparing photos for the internet, no support for plug-in filters and no HTML or JavaScript tools. These limitations, and a general lack of features, don't help PhotoSuite 7.0. As a result, other similarly priced competitors such as Adobe's Photoshop Elements, Ulead Systems' PhotoImpact XL or Jasc's Paint Shop Pro might suit your needs better.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
