While the new McLaren GT certainly fits that description, it’s fair to say the grand-tourer category has never seen anything quite like this before. Combining a super-lightweight MonoCell II-T carbon-fibre chassis with a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the GT delivers the kind of performance you’d expect to see at Mt Panorama, thrusting from 0-100 in a mere 3.2 seconds, and managing an incredible top speed of 326kph. And it’s equally jaw-dropping inside the cabin, where a marriage of softgrain leather, solid aluminium and refined cashmere give off an air of regal luxury. The wraparound windscreen provides more than 180 degrees of visibility, affording panoramic views of every…

editor’s letter

All year long the T3 team lives and breathes gadgets, and between us I like to think we know a thing or two about what separates the wheat from the chaff.

1 ASUS ZENBOOK PRO DUO $TBC, asus.com/au Dual-screen set-ups are nothing new. Walk into any creative office and you’ll likely see people multi-tasking on a pair of parallel desktop monitors. Two screens on one laptop, though? That is something new.

These work together seamlessly to deliver almost limitless flexible working options, whether you want to paint pictures (the ZenBook Pro Duo is bundled with a stylus), edit photo and video projects, or video-chat to your multiplayer pals.

6 APPLE MAC PRO $TBA, apple.com/au The unveiling of the first new Mac Pro in six years was a strictly hands-off affair, but you didn’t need to touch the machine to recognise its two most distinguishable traits: it looks like a cheese grater and it’s very powerful. The lattice pattern aids extreme airflow, which will come in very handy when the computer is performing at its maximum capabilities – you could outfit it with up to a 28-core Intel Xeon processor, a ridiculous 1.5TB of RAM, and a specialised Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics card Apple says is the most powerful in the world. Apple also revealed a new Pro Display XDR monitor that offers 32 inches of 6K resolution and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. It can maintain 1,000 nits of…
