JB Hi-Fi opens dedicated computer shop

Second store planned for Sydney CBD

Retail chain, JB Hi-Fi, is opening its first dedicated IT and computer store in Melbourne's CBD. The shopfront will be located close to its existing Elizabeth Streets premises.

JB Hi-Fi CEO, Richard Uechtritz, said the new store was in response to a lack of space, but also reflected strong growth in computer-related sales. He stressed that a computer-specific store was not a change in direction for the retailer.

"Computers are an important part of our business, and Elizabeth Street is renowned for being a technology strip," Uechtritz said.

PC sales have grown steadily since the retailer introduced computers to its product line just over 12 months ago.

Uechtritz claimed JB Hi-Fi now enjoyed double digit market share and was one of the top three computer retailers nationally.

All major computing brands, such as Acer, Toshiba, Asus and HP, are available through the retail chain, which has stores in every state and territory.

JB Hi-Fi is also planning a second store in Sydney's CBD following continued overtrading at the existing location, he said.

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.

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.
