Laptop for Gamers
The new GX60 portable computer from MSI is the perfect laptop for video game fans. This is the first laptop to allow gamers to hook up two extra monitors, one on either side, so they can immerse themselves in virtual reality.
The computer’s high-performance game engine from AMD provides enough power to run the most demanding games while ensuring intelligent energy use. As a result, the MSI GX60 can run on its battery for many hours.
The computer comes with the Killer E2200 network card to make sure that no enemy will suddenly disappear from sight due to a sluggish internet connection in a multi-player game. The computer’s SteelSeries keyboard is up there with the best gaming keyboards, ensuring quick-response and precise control. If your game is best played in a dark setting, you can dim the lights, as the keyboard is conveniently lit up. To make the experience complete, the laptop is fitted with the THX TruStudio Pro sound system for clean and pure sound.
Folie-ing in Love
The A La Folie (GZ281) watch from Swatch was designed especially for Valentine’s Day to show that “true love has nothing to hide.” The new model of the special Swatch Gent edition comes with a translucent, heart-shaped face which reveals the mechanism underneath it, as if to show that there are no secrets in love. The bracelet gives off a sensual vanilla scent. The A La Folie watch comes in a special, spherical container which has a smooth, see-through heart on top revealing the contents inside.
Scent of Mystery
ZEN Secret Bloom Eau de Parfum Intense, the latest fragrance for women from Shiseido, is available in a special, limited edition celebrating Shiseido’s 140th anniversary. The chypre and floral composition was developed by perfumer Michel Almairac. The perfume contains notes of jasmine, freesia, patchouli, incense and black vanilla which deliver a captivating contrast between floral freshness and mysterious warmth. The fragrance is intense, even intoxicating, sophisticated, mysterious and happy.
The World’s Thinnest Portable Hard Drive
The pencil-thin Seagate Slim external portable hard drive can easily fit in a pocket, backpack or laptop case, making it a perfect choice for people who live active lives. Boasting a casing which is just 9 millimeters thin, the Seagate Slim weighs a mere 160 grams, comparable to the weight of some smartphones. The durable, metal casing is scratch and fingerprint-proof. The drive has a capacity of 500 gigabytes, which is enough to store an impressive collection of movies, photographs and music files. The device is fitted with the fast USB 3.0 interface, compatible with USB 2.0 ports and Windows and Mac operating systems. It does not need to be formatted for use with Apple Mac computers.
Creating back-up copies of data is easy with the new hard drive thanks to its Seagate Dashboard software. The Seagate Slim allows users to conveniently store and share multimedia content from Facebook, Flickr and other community networking websites.
