If you think laser printers belong only in the office, Ricoh’s SP 150SUw is here to convince you otherwise. For a start, it’s tiny – about the size of two loaves of sliced bread side by side – but it’s also an all-in-one device that’s able to print, scan and make copies. Features and design […]

Post Image

The Acer Swift 3 is a 14in laptop for normal people, not those with the spare cash for something extravagant like a MacBook Pro or HP Spectre. And, compared to those 13in laptops, the Acer’s screen is an inch larger. Thanks to the falling cost of making a laptop thin and light, the Swift 3 is no brick. […]

Panasonic LX15 review: A compact camera that puts quality first

Post Image

One-inch sensors are the best thing to happen to compact cameras in a long time. They’re about four times larger than those used in smartphones and cheap compact cameras and that means a big boost for image quality. They’re not as big as SLR sensors, but cameras like the Panasonic LX15 make up for it […]

Asus Chromebook Flip review – CNET

Post Image

Remember the now-discontinued 11-inch MacBook Air? The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is like a cheaper version of it that you can actually buy. The 12.5-inch Asus laptop is a capable Chromebook with an all-aluminum 2-in-1 design and touchscreen. It looks and feels like a sleeker, more expensive product and, to be fair, for a Chromebook […]

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Release Date, Price and Specs – Roadshow

Post Image

Last week, Hyundai announced pricing for its Ioniq series of hybrid and electric cars. I reckoned that Toyota would have a heck of a fight on its hands if the Ioniq turned out to be as good on the road as it looked on paper. I’ve since driven the Ioniq in all three of its […]
