Discovering cool new technology is an exciting prospect! Each month we take a look at some of the latest tech products available from JB Hi-Fi.
What: Hisense 120“ 4K HDR Laser Cinema Projector
Why: Whoever once declared that ”size doesn‘t matter“ never owned a short throw laser projector. These portable devices let you live large, casting a cinema-sized picture on the nearest wall or screen from a short distance. Hisense‘s Ultra-Short Throw Laser Engine beams perfect 4K pictures onto a huge 120-inch screen that‘s included in the purchase price (via redemption through Hisense), transforming your living room into the ultimate home theatre. The Ambient Light Rejecting screen is perfectly calibrated for use with this unit, reducing glare by 85 per cent, while X-Fusion technology ensures the picture is always bright and detailed, even in a brightly lit room. HDR keeps details razor sharp, and Dolby Atmos audio delivers further immersion. The projector also offers all the perks of smart TV functionality and is equipped with four HDMI ports for all your AV devices, including an ARC connection for audio.
Who: The inclusion of a massive 120“ screen makes this projector from Hisense the perfect all-in-one home theatre solution for those who like it large.
What: Lenovo Ideapad C340 14“ HD 2-in-1 Laptop

The Lenovo C340 Ideapad is indeed a great idea – a versatile and powerful 2-in-1 with a 14“ HD (1920 x 1080) touchscreen display that delivers remarkable clarity whether you‘re watching, content-creating, or simply scrolling through a spreadsheet. Equipped with a Pentium Gold 640SU processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SDD storage, the C340 is super responsive when multitasking and also features all-day battery life and a webcam shutter to protect you from prying eyes online.
