Apex Predator: Acer’s new gaming desktop wants to scramble to the top of the food chain

Acer’s Predator range has always been very good at one thing in particular: looking the part. The Predator series has always looked extremely aggressive but for once it might fully live up to its title — the newly-unveiled Acer Predator Orion 9000 is set to be a beast of a desktop PC. Even though the name sounds like it was drawn from a hat filled with badass military codenames, the Pr...[Read More]

It was only very recently that the HTC Vive made it to South Africa (officially) and now we’ve got something else to look forward to. At CES this year HTC and Valve took the wraps off the second iteration of their already impressive VR headset, called the HTC Vive Pro. And it’s going to be going wireless. Eventually. Before it does, though, it’ll arrive in a more traditional form...[Read More]

The iMac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever

Optimus Prime. The Tesla Model S P100D. A vindaloo curry when you’re not expecting it.

Simply put, Apple’s first new desktop computer since 2009 is an absolute beast.

Canon G1X Mark III – Honey, Canon just shrunk the DSLR…

Is it possible to get excited about a compact camera in 2017? After all, between dual-lens smartphones and compact system cameras, we’re already spoiled for choice when it comes to small, powerful snappers. But Canon’s G1X Mark III is that rare thing – a genuinely innovative (and yes, even exciting) compact. Why?

Apple iPhone X – Apple says bye to bezels and buttons and is better for it

Twenty years ago, Apple’s slogan was “Think different” – who knew it would be so appropriate two decades down the line? The X is the biggest shake-up for the iPhone since, well, ever. It ditches the signature home button, waves goodbye to bezels and scans your face instead of your fingers. Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. These sweeping changes aren’t just for show, though. They comp...[Read More]

Which iPhone should you buy? – Apple has 8 phones on the market. Here’s how to choose

Looking for the peak iPhone experience today? Well, the iPhone X is where it’s at… but the iPhone 8 Plus is also excellent. And the iPhone 8 is pretty good, too.

Fujifilm X-E3 – Fuji’s hot streak continues with this ravishing rangefinder…

If you’ve already been struggling to decide on a mid-range compact system camera, well, there’s bad news – your decision just got a bit tougher. Fujifilm’s X-T20 has long been our best all-round CSC, but now it’s been joined by a snazzy, retro alternative in the form of the X-E3. Both share the same 24.3MP APS-C sensor found in many DSLRs (as well as Fuji’s X-Pro2 and X100F), with the differences ...[Read More]

LG V30+ – Scraps the dual-screen gimmicks for a Hi-Fi focus

Budding movie makers, pay attention: LG’s latest wants to add some silver screen magic to your social shares. The LG V30+ can record 4K videos in LOG format – that’s the kind of silver screen wizardry cinematographers use when they colour-grade blockbuster movies. Not bad for something that slips into a pocket. It’s purpose-built for audiophiles, too, with a 32-bit DAC that’ll handle Hi-Res ...[Read More]

8 things we love about the Apple iPhone X – and 5 we don’t

The iPhone X is nearly here and it’s a showstopper: Apple has finally revamped the iPhone after a few years of sticking with the same design. It’s a huge shift, though, dropping the home button in favour of gesture-driven navigation, facial recognition for security, and an all-screen face. It’s also gorgeous, though, and feels like the truly exciting, ultra-premium upgrade weR...[Read More]
