Home grown auction site goes live

The online auction market is hotting up in Australia with the launch today of a locally-developed online auction house, www.stuff.com.au.

Australian-owned and developed, stuff.com.au offers a person-to-person auction service that could expand to include the clearance of surplus stock from merchants, the company said.

Registering with the service is free whilst a "minimal" listing fee and a scaled commission (based on the highest bid), will apply. Upon registering each buyer or seller will be given a home page which can be used for highlighting their goods for sale or making bids on items.

All items are priced in Australian dollars and a secure environment for credit card transactions is provided, the company claims.www.stuff.com.au is the second online auction house to be launched in Australia this year, earlier this month Yahoo! Australia & NZ launched its own service, which does not carry listing or commission fees. US online auction house eBay is also expected to be launched in Australia in partnership with PBL Online.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
