Samsung is releasing 25 LED TVs onto the Australian market in the next few months. Speaking at Samsung's product launch today, senior marketing manager, Lambro Skropidis, said that the company expects sales of LED TVs to eclipse LCD models over the next year. Spearheading the company's LED TV line-up is the Series 8 (8000), available in 55in and 60in sizes. The 55in model is $4699, while a price has yet to be confirmed for the 60in model. Samsung's 2011 Series 7 TVs are differentiated from the premium Series 8 with styling tweaks, but are less expensive with a $4099 55in and $3199 46in model. Series 6, Series 5 and Series 4 LED TVs will also be available throughout March, April and May.

Ten 2011 plasma TV models are being released in Australia by Samsung — an increase from last year's eight. Plasma TVs are now available as part of Samsung's Series 8 plasma range, with three sizes available — the $4299 64in, $3499 59in and $2599 51in. No Series 7 plasma TVs are available, although 59in and 51in Series 6 plasmas are available for $2999 and $2099 respectively.

Samsung's latest range of traditional CCFL-backlit LCD TVs is only being targeted to the budget market. Six models are available over Series 5 and Series 4 ranges, with the cheapest available a $199 19in Series 4 panel and the most expensive a $999 40in Series 5. An equivalent Series 40in Series 5 Samsung TV with LED backlighting costs $1199.

All TVs in Samsung's Series 8, Series 7, some Series 6 and some of the Series 5 range can access Samsung's Smart TV service, which incorporates an applications library, social TV services via Facebook, Twitter and Google Talk, and a combined network and Internet media search function. Premium models also have Skype certification for use with an optional webcam, and a built-in Web browser with full functionality including HTML5.

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!

Mark Escubio

Lenovo Yoga

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.

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.
