Dick's new management slashing prices for one day only

Dick Smith holding a pre-Christmas, one day only sale on Wednesday 5 December

Australian electronics retailer Dick Smith is holding a pre-Christmas, one day only sale on Wednesday 5 December, in what the company describes as an event to "celebrate" its new management team.

The Dick Smith business, previously owned by Woolworths, was sold to a private equity firm, Anchorage Capital, for $20 million back in September.

Most Dick Smith stores across Australia will take part in the sale on Wednesday 5 December, which is listed as running from 5pm until 8pm. The sale is also available online, though it was not currently listed on the Dick Smith Web site at the time of writing.

Sale items include 15 per cent off TVs, 25 per cent off home theatre systems and, surprisingly, 10 per cent off Apple iPods and the company's iTunes Store gift vouchers.

The full list of sale items is detailed below, taken from Dick Smith's press release.

Sale items, for all the family, include:

10% Off iPods, iTunes and Digital SLRs
15% Off TVs, HP & Compaq computers
25% Off Home Theatre Systems
30% Off Navigation, Batteries and Home Networking
50% Off HDMI Cables

The Dick Smith one-day only sale will be held across all retail stores in NSW but excludes seven stores across the country. Logan Hyperdome and Rockhampton Stockland (QLD), Box Hill (VIC), and Busselton, Kalgoorlie, Bunbury & Albany (WA) are stores that won't be taking part in the sale.

Last month, Dick Smith become one of the world's first retailers to sell unlocked Apple iPhone devices, including the newest model iPhone 5.

While iPhone's are sold at various other Australian retail stores, these have traditionally been sold on contract plans through carriers Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile.

iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models were previously only sold outright through official Australian Apple retail stores.

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.

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!

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.
