Sony's BRAVIA EX720 LED TV is the cheapest model you can buy with 3D playback. No glasses are included, and you'll have to buy a Wi-Fi adapter if you want to connect to a wireless network.

You'll need to buy the 3D glasses as they aren't included, but we're guessing that the EX720 will be a cheap entry into 3D Blu-ray and TV playback.

Like the Sony BRAVIA EX710 from last year, the EX720 series uses an edge-lit LED backlight.

The Sony BRAVIA EX720 series will be available in five screen sizes — as the most mainstream model Sony offers, it can be purchased in small-screen 32in and 40in sizes (as the KDL-32EX720 and KDL-40EX720 respectively), mid-size 46in (KDL-46EX720) and larger 55in and 60in sizes (KDL-55EX720 and KDL-60EX720). All models except the 46in will be available from April, and the mid-sized KDL-46EX720 will be on store shelves in June.

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
