As the waning days of 2021 are upon us, it's time once again to look ahead to the future, to the horizon. Despite a global pandemic and supply chain woes aplenty, Apple has had a blockbuster year, with successful launches of new iPhones and iPads, and a continued transition on the Mac that is redefining the product line for the next generation.

But in the tech business, you're only as good as your next move. No company can afford to rest on its laurels, and even Apple, with all of its success, is not an exception. 

So as we start thinking about closing the books on 2021, it's worth looking ahead to that puck that Apple's skating towards. And while we may have good reason to anticipate some of its upcoming products, there are always places where Apple could have something surprising up its sleeve.

The most powerful Macs

Given the impressive performance of the M1 Pro and M1 Maxchips in Apple's new MacBook Pros, the company has quelled any doubts that it can produce professional-level computers based on its own silicon. 

Which is good, because with the recent discontinuation of the Intel-based 21.5-inch iMac, the company's shifted the vast majority of its product lines to its own chips. And, as anticipated, it's left the most powerful for last.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
