Review of the Nokia Lumia 720

The display itself doesn’t have the same high res as a premium phone but Nokia have managed to make the most...

Apple iMac new review

Announced in October last year, the new Apple iMac promised a powerful processor, great visual display and a screen thin enough to fit comfortably on any desk. At the same time, Apple announced a new and improved version of the classic Mac Mini – the new design boasting an improved new processor and new Fusion drive while still being in an amazingly small package.

While the screen isn’t as thin as modern TVs, the size is still impressive compared to...
