  Our star letter this issue (page 6) struck a chord with me. No spoilers – but the premise is the importance of product dimensions when it comes to choosing new tech kit. I faced a similar problem recently when needing to buy a new printer, which had to fit on a certain shelf in
our hall cupboard, so could only be so tall and so wide.
 The reason for hiding the printer away in a cupboard is that neither my husband nor I want to dedicate the space in our home offices to a printer. There’s also the style element: I doubt many companies are that interested in whether a printer fits perfectly into the colour scheme of their workspace, but I’m sure those of us with home offices would prefer a sleek machine on display, or otherwise one that can be tucked away under a desk or behind a cabinet rather than in prime position.
  For those of you who feel the same way about your PC, we’ve got a roundup of mini PCs this month (page 70), which are the perfect option for those wanting to free up some space or hide away their computer. Even better, these machines might be tiny, but they still pack a punch when it comes to performance.
  Mel Croucher wrote a column earlier this year about the horrible impact the digital divide can have on certain members of society, including an old friend of his. Mel has been looking into this topic further to explore exactly how bad the problem is, who’s affected most, and where – and more importantly, how or if the gap between internet haves and have nots can be resolved.
  As we head towards the general election, the major parties have been pledging to make Britain a fairer and more equal society by offering better broadband provision. But as Mel discovers, there isn’t one quick fix to the digital divide.
