The small, stylish OWC Envoy Pro Elektron looks nice next to a Mac. It's also fast and surprisingly ruggedized

The latest version of Fledging's Shell Thunderbolt NVMe SSD enclosure features a larger profile, plenty of venting, and an active fan for vastly improved cooling.
OWC's Envoy Express T3 enclosure lets you use your own M.2 NVMe SSD for external Thunderbolt storage. A clever sticky-mount caddy helps keep it in place.
Reengineered with macOS Big Sur in mind plus the usual performance and feature enhancements, Parallels Desktop 16 makes it a snap to run other operating systems as virtual machines on your Mac.
Sabrent leverages the power of their Rocket Q NVMe SSD in this small but fast, dual-interface speedster. It’s also available with up to 8TB of capacity.
OWC’s Envoy Pro EX USB-C portable SSD is one of those rare products that lives up to the “Pro” moniker. With up to 4TB of capacity, excellent performance and and honest-to-goodness IP67 certification, it’s the real deal.
In a world where even some of the best gaming accessories can feel superfluous, the Seagate Gaming Dock fits right in as a slick-looking, purpose built alternative to just expanding your storage space with an additional or external hard-drive.
As opposed to Samsung’s X5 SSD, the T7 veers much closer to the template laid out by the T5.
It might not suit power users but if you’re after a good portable storage option that provides plenty of capacity per dollar, the Seagate BackUp Plus Slim makes a strong case for itself.
This is a LaCie hard drive that’ll get the job done but it doesn’t make a good case for why it should be the SSD you go with over the other options.
If you’re looking for a solid middle-of-the-road NAS that’s got six drives and just enough guts to do justice to most potential everyday applications, the DS1618+ is a good way to go.
While the X5 is that much faster than the T5, you really have to be involved in an industry or hobby where that extra speed matters for it to really be worth the premium price.
If you’re willing to splurge on the larger sizings, the Seagate Fast SSD makes a very compelling case for itself.
The LaCie Rugged Secure is just a good if old-fashioned, outdoor-friendly external hard drive with a few modern touches.
If you’re the specialised user that Seagate is seeking out with the Copilot, rest assured, it delivers the goods. I just wish it delivered them a little cheaper, quicker and more consistently.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
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.
