Finding a good, reliable laptop can be a chore. For myself, I always want something that’s not too heavy so it’s portable and has a good battery life. And as I am occasionally using memory intensive programs, whether it be for work or play, I want something that’s fast and powerful. And hopefully doesn’t get hot too quickly so it doesn’t burn away my manhood as I use it on my lap.
And on all of these points, the Toshiba Satellite P50t-A satisfies. The p50t-A is an all-around solid laptop. It runs on a 2. 4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor and has 8 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16 GB). This means the machine is powerful enough to run a number of memory sucking programs at once, without having too many issues.

This may look like a photo of Morgan Freeman but it’s not. While based on a photograph by Scott Gries, this image is actually the work of visual artist Kyle Lambert which he created through a finger-painting app Procreate on the iPad.

Back in April, I reviewed the HTC One and it’s a good quality phone. But you might not like the size of it. If you find the 4.7-inch screen too small, you might want to check out the HTC One Max phablet with its 5.9-inch display.
But if you want something smaller, the HTC One Mini may be more to your liking.

If you’re looking to get a tablet but want to keep the Windows experience, it might be worth looking at Microsoft’s own tablet – the Surface. Last month, the company released the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, the second-generation of their Windows tablets. I had the opportunity to check out the Surface 2.

When it comes to flat-panel TVs, Sharp thinks big. Through its high-end AQUOS line, it only offers TVs 60 inches and larger.
Alongside its 1080p LED TVs, and its Quattron models (which add a yellow sub-pixel to the standard RGB colour setup), Sharp recently added a 4K ultra-high definition model to its lineup – the UD1. And I got a demonstration of the 70-inch television last week.
