In honor of the print edition of Encyclopedia Britannica's passing into the digital pages of the history books, we discuss new media's age old question: is print dead yet (or is it merely a walking zombie)?

The Precision M2800 is an impressive mobile workstation. We have just a couple of niggles: the touchpad is too small, and we'd prefer the top-of-the-range model's 128GB SSD to be bigger.
If you're seeking a well-specified mobile workstation with plenty of configuration options, Fujitsu's Celsius H730 is a worthy contender. It's not cheap, but the PalmSecure palm-vein authentication looks like a valuable addition.
The LG G3 is an elegant high-end Android smartphone with a superb 5.5-inch screen, a high-quality 13-megapixel main camera, a fast quad-core SoC, intelligent UI skinning and an admirably restrained set of software extras.
HP's 14-inch EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 combines ultrabook elegance with MIL-STD 810G robustness. It has a great screen and performs well, but lacks integrated VGA and Ethernet ports. You'll pay a premium price too.
The G Pad 8.3 is a well-thought-out tablet. Some may find the software extras a bit much, but there's a lot of utility in there. The hardware spec, like the device as a whole, is good value for money.

The HTC One (M8) ticks most of our boxes: design, build and performance are all excellent, there's no app overload, and HTC Sense is improving with every iteration. Battery life could be better and some of the camera tools may seem unnecessary, but overall it's a winner.
There's more to this phablet than its curved chassis, although the moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing. On the plus side, battery life is good and LG's Android tweaks are largely successful. Overall though, the G Flex is simply way too expensive.
This phablet offers flexible dual SIM support, an 8-megapixel front camera, NFC and a screen/stand, all for an affordable price. On the minus side, there's an imbalance between the paltry 4GB of internal storage and the generous software bundle, and the screen resolution is moderate considering its size.
