Apple iMac 24-inch
11.5mm – that’s how thin Apple’s new iMac is. Like having a neatly tidied desk, the new iMacs are able to work more efficiently and quickly than their predecessors. There’s also a 4K Retina display onboard, with a six-speaker sound system squeezed in behind it. Plus, the iMac now has a Touch ID so you can unlock your computer, log in and pay for shopping with your fingerprint.

Honor Band 6
No doubt, smartwatches are getting more sophisticated. But if you just want the essential fitness features that’s budget-friendly, look no further than the Honor Band 6. It comes with an understated design, with a 1.47-inch AMOLED touchscreen, and is super comfortable. Feature-wise, it automatically picks up the type of workout you’re on and offers a selection of plans, while blood oxygen, sleep and heart rate monitors ensure you’re always on top of your health. In addition, the battery life lasts for 14 days (or ten days on heavy usage), which is pretty impressive.

Infinix Note 10
Showcasing a superfluid display, powerful MediaTek gaming processors, cutting-edge AI-powered camera, and optimised 5000mAh battery with fast-charge technology, the Infinix Note 10 is crafted to enhance work and entertainment experiences for everyone. The 6.95-inch full high definition display and its sharp, crystal clear visuals are perfect for watching movies. Selfie lovers will appreciate the 16MP AI Beautify Selfie front-facing camera with two frontal flashes. The Note 10 also offers 2K resolution shooting capabilities in both the front and rear cameras for ultra-smooth and effortless filming. Furthermore, it features low blue light, so you get to enjoy every gameplay with less eye fatigue. The massive storage memory of 128GB and 6GB RAM also helps increase game acceleration and data processing efficiency, making Note 10 truly stand out.

Logitech G915 TKL gaming keyboard
The new Logitech G915 TKL is a smaller version of their popular G915 gaming keyboard, so expect plenty of satisfying clunks while playing. There are no number keys to the right (this is known as the tenkeyless form factor), which means the wireless keyboard has a more compact profile on your desk and more space to swing your mouse around. There’s individual RGB lighting under the keys, and you can pick one of 16.8 million colours to glow beneath them for night-time gaming. The keys’ low-profile combined with LightSpeed wireless technology, promising a fast one-millisecond response, means this should be one quick-playing keyboard. So, don’t even try to blame lag for missing out on that crucial headshot.

Sennheiser HD 450SE
Sennheiser announced a refreshed version of its HD 450BT and is still some of the best budget noise-cancelling you can buy. The upgrade with the new Sennheiser HD 450SE comes integrated with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant (rather than support for Siri and Google Assistant, like the HD 450BT). Other than that, the HD 450SE has the same features and 30-hour battery life as its predecessor.
Sar901 excluding shipping fees. Available on Amazon.sa
This device from Sonos is as sleek and powerful as you’d expect, with incredible sound and the kind of tough-wearing design you need from a portable speaker. Drop-resistant and waterproof up to three feet for thirty minutes, it also boasts an impressive battery life of 10 hours. The most remarkable feature, however, is the true-play tuning. It adapts the Roam’s sound to your surroundings and whatever it is you’re listening to.
