Dell XPS 15 laptop (with 4K display) review: A blogger’s experience

The Good: Dell’s nearly edgeless display makes the XPS 15 a complete joy to work on, and especially to watch video content. It’s got a very high standard build and feels like a premium product all around. The Bad: The 4K display is limited to the higher spec model, which is a shame. The Bottom Line: If a […]

Logitech M330 Silent Plus mouse review

Just like TVs, computer monitors don’t usually come with the best of speakers — often producing flat and tinny sound. Speaker systems like the Edifier M3200BT are a great way to add some style to your desk setup without breaking the bank at just under £50. And what’s more, it’s packing 34 watts of power […]

HP’s Pavilion Wave looks more like a speaker than a PC

F-Secure Booster: Device running slow? You don’t need a new one, you just need a boost!

I’d like to send a big shout out to F-Secure for sponsoring Let’s Talk Tech this month. Over time, computers and devices get worn down by use and cluttered up with files you don’t really need. Failed batteries, slow operations and time-consuming maintenance makes people think they need to replace their device, but they often find the same problems […]
