Although it's visually pleasing and well specified, particularly in the display department, the Chromebook Pixel's premium price tag makes it difficult for us to recommend.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92z review

The ThinkCentre M92z is a good-quality business-grade 23in. all-in-one computer. To get the most out of it, though, you may need a better-specified model than the entry-level system reviewed here.

Dell OptiPlex 9010 AIO review

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.

Acer Aspire S5 review

Acer Aspire S5 review

The Aspire S5 is an exceptionally slim, light and stylish ultrabook. However, it's also expensive: to blow us away, it needs a better screen, an Ethernet port and longer battery life — and a lower price.

Fujitsu Stylistic M532 review

Fujitsu Stylistic M532 review

This smart-looking, lightweight 10.1in. Android tablet comes with a good range of preinstalled business software. Although its lack of support for USB devices and USB charging is unfortunate, Fujitsu has made an admirable job of producing a tablet that's equally usable in the office and at home.

ioSafe Solo review

ioSafe Solo review

The ioSafe Solo is bulkier, heavier, slower and more expensive than less robust external drives. But it works well enough, and if you need your data to survive being burned and flooded, you can put your trust in this device.

Eurocom Monster 1.0 review

Eurocom Monster 1.0 review

This 11.6in. notebook is an outstanding performer. It's not particularly lightweight or attractive, but the specification is top-notch and the screen, keyboard and touchpad are all perfectly usable. Plenty of professionals will be keen to get their hands on this system, if they can stomach the price tag.

Orange San Diego review

Orange San Diego review

The first Intel-powered smartphone offers excellent value for money, with its large screen, good battery life and NFC support. On the downside, it lacks storage expansion, runs Android 2.3 and some apps may not run on the Atom processor.

Drobo B1200i review

Drobo B1200i review

Network storage doesn't come much easier than this, with very little expertise needed to manage the 12-bay Drobo B1200i. It's also fast, with three iSCSI ports, lots of redundancy and data-aware tiering — just like enterprise products costing a great deal more.
