The third-generation iPad, announced last week, will be sold through Apple's retail stores and the Apple Online Store on Friday 16 March 16 from 8am local time. In addition to Australia, the new iPad will go on sale tomorrow in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Along with Apple's retail stores, the new iPad will also be sold though Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Dick Smith (DSE), Big W, JB Hi-Fi and Target from tomorrow.

The new iPad looks identical to the iPad 2, but boasts a high resolution "retina" display, has an upgraded 5-megapixel camera and is powered by a dual-core A5X processor with quad-core GPU. It also has 4G capability, but this isn't compatible in Australia as it doesn't support the 1800MHz 4G network band used by Telstra.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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