The ultimate laptop for punching up that CV in a coffee shop or writing up your MA thesis. Apple's new MacBook demands a premium -- it starts at £1,049 -- but is also the most enviable new laptop of the year.
A gaming laptop that slim and light enough to double as a work machine, the £1,400 Omen is sharp-looking enough not to be a bore, but also mature enough to avoid looking like it belongs in a hall of residence.
A slick hybrid tablet-laptop for less, this new version of Microsoft's Surface starts at just £419, but keeps much of the high-end design from the Surface Pro line. The biggest downer is that you still have buy the excellent keyboard separately -- that's an extra £110.
Thanks to Logitech's Darkﬁeld Laser technology, this deluxe £80 mouse works on just about any surface, and an integrated rechargeable battery can last up to 40 days on a single charge. Mac users, meanwhile, enjoy the extra benefit of gesture support -- most of the multi-finger trackpad gestures can be duplicated on the MX Master while holding down an extra key.
While the new 12-inch MacBook is the hottest laptop around, the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro is, right now, the best combination of price (£999), features and power. Especially with new Intel CPUs and a Force Touch trackpad.
Thinner than even a standard internal laptop hard drive, the Seagate Seven is by far the slimmest portable drive to date. The drive pairs its great look with excellent performance, making it a superb gift for those needing to carry extra information around.
