Nokia Lumia 925 review

The Lumia 925 is a slimmer and lighter Windows Phone 8 handset than its 920 predecessor, with a neater and more ergonomic design. It lacks integrated wireless charging but supports LTE and NFC, and has an excellent 4.5in. AMOLED screen.

HP ElitePad 900 review

Although it's well built and delivers decent battery life, the ElitePad 900's combination of a basic Atom-based tablet and a range of optional extras is an expensive way to build a work-ready system.

InFocus BigTouch review

The largest and heaviest all-in-one PC we've ever seen, the BigTouch may find a niche in some presentation, classroom or signage situations. However, the price is almost as eye-watering as the system when you try to lift it.

Apple 13-inch MacBook Air review

The 2013 13-inch MacBook Air has enough internal improvements to make it one of the most desirable ultraportable notebooks on the market. It may lack an ultra-high-resolution display and touchscreen functionality, but there's little else to fault it.

Eurocom Racer 3.0 review

Eurocom's 15.6in. high-performance notebook gets the 4th-Generation Intel Core (Haswell) upgrade, and delivers the goods in terms of specification and speed. The design is uninspiring, though, and it's also bulky and heavy.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review

The 8-inch Galaxy Note 8 is reasonably comfortable to hold one-handed in portrait mode to make jottings with its pressure-sensitive pen, and is a delight to use. Still, you'll need to really want the added features that pen input brings to the device, because it's relatively expensive.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch review

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is attractive and solidly built, with an excellent touchscreen and a great keyboard. However, we'd like to see more ports and a removable battery at the very least. As it stands, this ultrabook is too expensive for widespread deployment.

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m review

The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

With the Galaxy S4, Samsung has squeezed a superb 5-inch screen and a host of high-end features into a slightly slimmer, thinner and lighter chassis than its S III predecessor. It's an excellent handset, but some will find the S4 overladen with unnecessary features and too expensive.

BlackBerry Q10 review

If you're a fan of keyboard-equipped BlackBerry smartphones, you won't be disappointed by the Q10. However the app store needs filling out and the small, square screen isn't ideal for some uses.

HTC One review

HTC has pulled out all the stops with the One, which looks great, performs well and includes some clever features. The lack of storage expansion and the persistence of BlinkFeed are irritations, but overall the HTC One stands up well against rival flagship handsets.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 review

The chunky Toughpad FZ-G1 has a high-resolution outdoor-visible screen, is moderately rugged, and delivers decent performance and middling battery life with the standard battery. The biggest drawback, however, is the price.

Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) review

Some of the features that were to be included in Ubuntu 13.04 have been shelved in favour of presenting a polished and solid release, with most of the improvements residing behind the scenes. As a result, Raring Ringtail may seem a bit of a disappointment.
