Why not take a look around the tech hub for advice, reviews, deals and competitions:
This stylish laptop has become a bit of a child to me, I keep the touchscreen clean and free of fingerprints in order to fully appreciate the stunning graphics and colours provided by the independent Radeon graphics card installed. This can be futile at times when playing games on the laptop which can utilise this touchscreen capacity, allowing for portable use without worrying about taking a mouse with me.
The battery life of the laptop is actually as good as they say it is, of course it doesn't quite achieve 7 hours when running games etc out and about, but it hasn't died on me yet.
One of the things that impresses me most about the laptop isn’t the battery life or the graphics, but the sheer speed of the thing. It starts up instantaneously, and I have absolutely no problems when running multiple processor heavy programs, or games with high graphics settings turned on. Very pleased with this machine.
This smart TV has been a bit neglected as a TV by myself so far, though this is not due to any difficulty in doing so, but rather TV nowadays is a bit rubbish. Thus I have been using it in conjunction with the laptop as an extended screen, allowing myself to run several things across both screens at once. It also runs films/videos direct from a portable hard-drive, so that I am able to watch films on a larger screen, and also from the comfort of my bed.
The sound quality of the TV has also impressed me, although I have not been able to test this fully without managing to annoy my housemates.
This will obviously not shine as much as the other products as it doesn't exactly provide any direct entertainment. I have managed to back up all of my work files and password protect them, ensuring their safety should the laptop go out of action for whatever reason. There are larger hard-drives available, but at 1TB I can’t see myself running out of room any time soon.
