Buying through Techscheme means you'll be able to spread the cost over up to three years and save up to 12% on amazing tech products from our partners at Apple and Currys PC World.
Best Desktop PC 2018: Corsair One Pro

The Corsair One Pro was built mainly for gaming, but, the requirements of a great gaming PC mean that they end up being pretty darn good at everything else too. Powered by an Intel Core i7-7700K processor, 16GB of RAM, 2TB of HDD storage and 48Gb of SSD storage, all working with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card the Corsair One Pro can face up to anything you throw at it.
All of that hardware comes in a surprisingly small package which makes it easy to move around or fit into snug spaces. While the hardware itself means you won't need to think about upgrading for a while, the easy-open case makes it simple to update that hardware as you go along. Liquid cooled and VR ready the One Pro is the desktop to beat.
Best Laptop 2018: Dell XPS 13

Arguably the best all-around laptop today is the touchscreen XPS 13 from Dell. They’ve put together a super slick, powerful laptop. The Infinity Edge display doesn’t waste a millimetre of space on this narrow aluminium and carbon fibre laptop, which makes it nice and comfortable to carry around, as well as good to look at.
The latest 8th generation Intel processing power sits behind the scenes of this touchscreen laptop, backed up by 16GB of RAM and 512Gb of Solid State storage. Whether you’re looking for something to take with you on your commute or power your productivity at home, the XPS 13 has you covered.
Best Smartphone 2018: iPhone X

The iPhone X is incredible. With the inclusion of industry-leading Face ID, a phenomenal OLED display, brilliant cameras with the capacity to shoot an edit stunning 4K video this iPhone has sent every other manufacturer scrambling to catch-up. 
All that’s before you get to iOS 11, optimised for the gesture led interface on the iPhone X, fun new features like 3D emoji and the new portrait mode that adds an impressive depth of functionality for fans of selfies. It’s the best iPhone there’s ever been, and in terms of the wider market, well, it’s tough to beat.
Best Tablet 2018: iPad Pro 12.9-inch

The iPad Pro 12.9-inch is one of the fastest and most powerful tablets around, largely thanks to the much-praised A10X processor chip. The Pro is an incredibly strong machine that will out-perform even some laptops. Honestly, if you were to choose to get the peripheral keyboard and pencil you wouldn’t need a laptop at all.
Being so powerful, you know this will handle anything that you'd expect your average tablet to do – gaming, browsing with multiple tabs, streaming audio and video are all easy on the Pro. As well as all that class, you get Apple's elegant design and a new Retina screen that's the best we've seen on an iPad.
