Intel's AppUp store adds support for Australian users

Aussie users can buy apps off Intel's new netbook storefront

Intel's AppUp store now allows Australian users to purchase applications. The AppUp application store for netbooks was launched to the public last week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, but Australian users were restricted to downloading only free applications.

The store now allows Australian users to purchase applications once they add their payment information via the AppUp Centre Web page. Registered users can get to the payment information page simply by clicking on the link that appears in a pop-up screen when they start the steps to purchase an application.

Currently the most popular downloaded applications on AppUp are all free. Prices for paid applications start from 99 cents (US) and can cost over $100 for advanced applications (such as this audio sequencer called GURU). Unfortunately, there isn't a try before you buy option for the applications.

The applications are designed for netbooks and will run at a resolution of 1024x600. Applications downloaded from the store will work on any computer that uses the Intel Architecture as well as the Windows 7 or MeeGo operating systems. While you'll be able to run applications from AppUp on a Core i7 notebook, the applications will be optimised for Intel Atom devices.

Users running MeeGo are not left out. Netbooks and tablets running this Linux-based operating system can use the Moblin link on the AppUp Web site to download the AppUp storefront on their device. You can also run the applications on a Windows 7-based notebook, but they will only be able to run them in windowed mode.

To download applications, users must first install the Intel AppUp application. Once applications are downloaded, they can either be launched through this application or via a desktop shortcut. The AppUp application gives users a list of recently installed applications and also shows if updates are available for them.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
