Michelle Atagana, Managing Editor, unboxes the long rumoured and awaited iPad mini. Probably one of the longest and most researched, and most rumoured, Apple products on our pages, the iPad mini created a truck load of debates about whether Apple will succeed with his device. It is its first device in a long while to enter an established market with the Kindle Fire and Nexus ruling the roost. Yet during the unboxing it certainly got us excited to try this baby iPad for a review.
Steven Norris, Gearburn editor, unboxes the Samsung Galaxy Note II. It looks like our Galaxy SIII, just slightly larger and with the addition of the S pen. The first Galaxy Note was big, and the Note II is bigger. Screen size had been upped from 5.2 inches to 5.3 inches that utilises the Samsung Super AMOLED screen beautifully. To feed that power hungry screen is an enormous 3100mAh battery. A true beast with beauty thrown into the mix.
Ever-excitable Gearburn Editor Steven Norris unboxes one of the cooler products Apple’s recently released, namely the brand new Apple TV. This tiny little black cube of magic connects to a TV, and streams content from iTunes. It’s a neat idea, as Apple TV also streams Netflix, Youtube and the ESPN sports channels to name but a few content hubs. So obviously we rip it apart and see what you can expect to get if you purchase the Apple TV.
One of the greatest pieces of tech ever invented, the iPhone 5 is reviewed to perfection by managing editor Michelle Atagana.

So hold on, get stuck in and enjoy yet another incredible video review from Gearburn.com
Fearless Gearburn editor Steven unboxes Apple’s frankly amazing iMac 27-inch all-in-one desktop. Without a doubt, this is one of the hottest Mac’s we’ve ever laid eyes on and Mr Norris unboxes it with the glee of a schoolchild unwrapping a gift on Christmas day. The specs’ are pretty crazy, the screen is insanely large, it’s all practically wireless, except for the power cable, and it’s yet another quality package from Apple. Watch the video below and drool in envy.

Did everyone catch the memo? Laptops and tablets are about to enter a renaissance thanks to Microsoft. So where does this leave the other device makers? If it’s Toshiba we get the Satellite P850, a laptop designed with entertainment in mind. What do we get for roughly US$800, how about 8GB RAM, some nippy performance and very lush sound? We can deal with that, and so can Stuart Thomas our resident lover of laptops. It’s video time.
Can there be anything sweeter than Apple’s Macbook Pro with Retina Display? This is one of the most powerful notebooks on the market, with a screen that cannot be matched. Sure, there’s the insane price, but how can we put a price on a work of art? If you haven’t realised it by now, we fell in love with this exceptional beast from Cupertino. Join Gearburn Ed Steven Norris as he briefly reviews his new favourite toy.

It’s not the greatest piece of tech to ever come out of California, and it certainly won’t be the last, but from where we’re sitting, it’s a slick tablet with plenty to offer the newcomer to the world of Apple. Without giving too much away, the new iPad looks damn amazing and is just like the iPad 2, except cranked to the visual max and stuffed to the brim with speed. We go over this devilish device and see what it’s made of, other than metal and glass.
