JB Hi-Fi three hour sale cuts prices on Apple Macs, TVs and cameras

Ten per cent price cuts on Apple Macs, fifteen per cent on cameras just a few savings on offer

Apple laptop and desktop computers, digital cameras and TVs are just a few of the products attracting significant savings at a three-hour-long JB Hi-Fi Friends and Family sale being held at the retailer's stores tonight.

Despite its "exclusive invitation" status and Friends and Family moniker, the sale is open to the public — it is prominently displayed on JB Hi-Fi's Web site front page and has its own dedicated sub-site.

JB Hi-Fi generally has reasonably low prices on its stock — although diligent buyers can often find cheaper prices by hunting online and buying from overseas sources — and the Friends and Family sale adds further savings off Australia's high consumer electronics recommended retail prices.

Apple's iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini attract 10 per cent discounts off their recommended retail prices, but iPads remain at full price. Apple products are generally hard to find with significant discounts due to Apple's strict enforcement of price parity between retailers.

All other desktop PCs and notebooks in stock at JB Hi-Fi are discounted by 15 per cent. Similarly, all digital cameras are discounted by 15 per cent.

Car entertainment products are 30 per cent cheaper, although GPS devices are only discounted by 20 per cent. Home theatre receivers and speakers also attract a 20 per cent discount, as do all CDs, DVDs and games.

TVs attract the smallest discount with all panels (excluding the retailer's budget Soniq and Okano brand lines) discounted by 10 per cent.

The sale is in effect at all JB Hi-Fi stores nationwide from 6PM-9PM (local times), with select stores remaining open until 10PM. Stores will temporarily close at 5:30PM to stock up for the sales.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

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.
