Technology: What should I buy? & Top tips

Same as ImmaturityRules - my 360 is probably more use as a novelty paperweight but I also downloaded Just Cause 2 and use it very occasionally, depending on what Boomerang sends me. No problems so far although it seems the download speed of the 360 is scarily slow compared with the One.

Currently have a Windows phone, which I like (phone itself aint great) though the lack of customisation (eg. no home image) is a shame. Considering a possible move to Android, as the visual style is nice and they seem easy to use - however WP 10 is on the way soon, also xbox intergration.

There's the Lumia stuff, though several of them lack flash, front cameras and good screens - the 640 costs a little more but has all of those things. The Motorola Moto G and E look nice, and then of courses there's the super common Samsung phones.

I'm a bit of a fan of WP so I'm slightly biased but a couple of things - you should (unless it's quite an old model, which may not have the 8.1 upgrade? I know my old 610 doesn't) have the option to set an image on your home menu with transparent tiles. Looks like the screenshot I've attached to the post.

The 640 is a nice phone with decent capabilities. It's the sort of thing I'll be looking at getting my son this year as he starts the move from primary to secondary school. I find WP a lot more functional and easy to use than Android. My 930 has a 20mp camera and a fantastic display, but it's more per month than what you're looking to spend.

Yeah my current phone never moved to 8.1 - it was one of HTCs failed attempts to move into WP.

Invested in an iPad mini - weird how the iPad Air now seems bulky! The main advantage is that it now fits in a suit pocket, much like my Kindle used to, so easy enough to use on the tube. That said, I am still annoyed by Apples refusal to have a decent amount of RAM as the moment you switch between tabs, it annoyingly resets the page to blank as no proper memory. Or maybe it's just the dodgy iOS. Either way, multi-tasking is not exactly great.

I have an iPad Air 2 and mini 2 and much prefer the mini for size alone.

Think I have to concur with Slam san. The normal sized iPad Air just seems bulky now!

So I need a new laptop soonish, but I'd like one which can play a few games (cough world of warships cough).

Not making any decision immediately, but does this one look decent?

I don't know too much about specs, but asides from the screen resolution it seems okish.

Looks good in that price bracket, lots of HDD space is handy too. Personally I went with one with more memory for video editing, but you should be OK with most games with 8gb no problem.

With a change of job, and realising they use google docs, am thinking of getting a chrome book, was thinking if you guys had any recommendations.
