Google Nexus 4 review

The LG-built Nexus 4 offers terrific value for money, if you don't mind its moderate battery life and lack of LTE support. Shame it's currently sold out at Google's Play store.

Microsoft Surface review

Microsoft's ARM-based tablet has plenty of good points, but there are enough downsides to make caution advisable. The hardware platform and the Windows RT ecosystem will undoubtedly improve, so we'd suggest giving version 1.0 a miss unless you're an avid early adopter.

Dell OptiPlex 9010 AIO review

Dell's business-class 23in. all-in-one desktop has a lot to recommend it, including unfussy design, solid construction, low power consumption and quiet operation. However, its graphics performance is moderate, the screen's viewing angles could be better and it's not cheap.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Premium review

There are features in Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 that many people will never use, but its core dictation capability is excellent, while the context-sensitive sidebar help is a big improvement.
