E*TRADE cuts prices

Online stock broker E*TRADE Australia has announced a new pricing structure that could see frequent users paying nearly $30 per trade rather than the previous $49.50.

The new pricing was announced today as the company prepares for the launch later this month of its ANZ E*TRADE Online Investing service, which will see it gain access to the ANZ bank's customer base of four million.

Standard brokerage fees for E*TRADE have also been cut, down to $39.50 from $49.50.

Under the new scheme, customers of E*TRADE who make more than 40 trades per quarter are classed as "frequent" investors, and will be eligible for $10 rebates per trade, bringing the cost down to $29.50 per trade (for transactions up to $40,000).

In a statement released today, the company said it anticipates the ANZ alliance will bring substantial growth in customer numbers, and with the new pricing, will position it well to become the top online broker in Australia.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
