The new Huawei Matepad is a sleek and stylish, 10.4-inch tablet that’s designed for both entertainment and productivity. Apart from a stunning 2K high-definition FullView display to catch your Netflix shows on, it also comes equipped with an impressive quad-channel speaker system that’s powered by renowned audio house Harman Kardon. Those looking to get a tablet to increase their efficiency at work will be impressed by the Matepad’s Multi-Window 6 feature, which allows users to run a background app and add up to two floating windows on the screen.
If there’s any time to buy an iMac, it’s now.

At a light 4.5 kilograms, the new range of iMacs come in seven gorgeous colourways that will spruce up any desk in a jiffy. Read our full review here.
The wait is over: Ruark Audio is bringing its R5 Signature, an all-in-one home music system and successor to the R5, to audiophiles in Singapore. The stylish design features a piano lacquer finish with machined alloy rose gold detailing, making it the perfect addition to any home. Most of its features harken back to the success of its predecessor, only this time it’s elevated with a feature known as the STEREO+. The R5 Signature comes with a much cleaner soundstage with greater depth and realism, complete with a revised routing of key signal paths and high purity oxygen-free speaker cables to boost its sound clarity.
When Bang & Olufsen comes out with a new product, you know for sure it’s going to be one that impresses. Enter the Beolab 28, the Denmark powerhouse’s latest addition to its series of home speakers. “Beolab 28 is our most advanced connected speaker to date, providing powerful sound and flexible placement options due to its slim shape and small footprint,” says Christoffer Poulsen, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Management at Bang & Olufsen. Need we say more? The slim machine is crafted with a built-in subwoofer based on a custom-made 6.5″ driver, allowing each listener to really feel the bass.
It even comes with a Beam Width Control feature to ensure the best listening experience for any situation. In ‘narrow mode’, for instance, the sound waves are made to reach the ears with minimal side wall reflections and interference, while ‘wide mode’ is meant to diffuse more sound all around the loudspeakers to maintain a natural tonal balance even when you’re sitting in one spot or walking about.
