Sony Playstation 3 120GB (PS3 Slim)

With its slicker body and reduced price point, the PlayStation 3 Slim is vastly more enticing than its costly predecessor. As Blu-ray players go, it's pretty hard to beat -- and that's before you even factor in the games. If Microsoft claims it's not worried by the new PS3, it needs to take a closer look. One thing's for sure: the console race just got interesting.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
