Stuff Picks: The sleek HP Elite Slice will make you ditch your bulky desktop setup

Plus headphones for your new (jackless) iPhone 7, and a printing heavyweight

HP Elite Slice (S$1099)

An inventive alternative to traditional computers, the Slice is a modular PC that takes up a fraction of the space of a regular desktop. The 16.5cm form factor is ultra-small and portable but packs a powerful punch — housing up to sixth-generation Intel Core i7 and running Windows 10 Pro.

Displays, keyboards and mice connect to the system through two USB 3.1 Type-C, two USB 2.0, DisplayPort and HDMI ports. Each module also has a HP Slice Connector port that lets you connect more components like an audio module or optical disk drive to the PC. Combined with a cable-free design, the Slice makes for one clean and stylish work environment.

Razer Ornata (S$129.90)

Mechanical gaming keyboards are great for blasting noobs on CS:GO, but they can be tricky when you need to do actual work (i.e type for extended periods). Get the best of both worlds with the Razer Ornata, which combines the traits of a membrane rubber dome design with the tactility of mechanical keyboards, all encapsulated in their signature Chroma backlit technology.

The result is a Mecha-Membrane hybrid that provides a comfortable and efficient typing experience with a soft, cushioned touch and a crisp tactile click with each keystroke. It’s a unique way of typing that will increase your productivity in both gaming and working. Besides, who doesn’t like a glowing rainbow keyboard?

Having incorporated the acoustic and driver advances from the 800 Series Diamond Loudspeakers, the P7 Wireless delivers an audio experience that’s high in sound performance with tighter bass and defined vocals that are balanced and clear across the whole frequency range.
