New player enters online auctions

Fairfax today announced a partnership with US company Auction Universe that will bring a new online auction service to Australia.

Called SOLD.com.au, the service is based on the same model which Auction Universe has used in its US and UK operations. Listing items for auction will attract a $1 fee (this is waived until July 14 when the site commences bidding and transactions). The site is available from today for early listing of items. A 3.5 per cent commission will apply to successful auctions.

This year has seen a number of online auction houses launch in Australia, including Yahoo! Australia & NZ Auctionsand www.stuff.com.au.

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.
