iMac, Apple, From £1,249

Why We Rate It: We couldn’t not include Apple’s latest design on this list. Available in seven colours, from standard silver to a soft green, it has plenty of impressive tech features: 256GB of storage, stunning Retina display and the brand’s new M1 chip, among other things. It’s pricey, but it promises super speed and high-quality performance. If you’re an Apple fan, it’s worth it.

Twelve South PlugBug Duo, £29.95 (was £49.99)

Why We Rate It: Multi-plugs aren’t new, but this five-in-one adapter is a step up. Compact and easy to use, it lets you charge Apple devices – and other USB powered items – in Europe, the US, China, Australia, Japan and more. It’s an easy way to clear up all your cables at home, or a compact adapter to use when travelling.

Momax IoT Lamp, £129.95

Why We Rate It: Functional and stylish, this is so much more than your standard desk lamp. A flexible bulb head lets you adjust the angle, while a wireless charging pad means you can charge your phone or smartwatch simultaneously. Even better, the Momax lamp can be controlled by an app, so you can set schedules and work the auto-off function from your phone or tablet when you’re not in the room.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, From £999

Why We Rate It: Lenovo is well established as a reliable laptop brand. It’s also released the world’s first fully foldable computer. A hybrid tablet/laptop, use it as either a split-screen book-style device with stylus, or make the most of its large all-in-one display with the compact, mini keyboard. The X1 Fold also benefits from 256GB of storage, a slick 2k display and an extremely lightweight frame (under 1kg) that ensures it’s portable. Consider us converted.
