The company announced today on its Australian blog that the tablet is officially available online.

The online launch comes almost three weeks after the tablet officially went on sale through selected Australian retail stores including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith.

The 16GB Wi-Fi model of the new Nexus 7 sells for $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is available for $339, a price hike of $50 and $40, respectively, compared to the original Nexus 7.

Google also sells a 32GB Wi-Fi+LTE version of the Nexus 7 for $439. All three models have a listed dispatch time of between 1-2 days and include free shipping for a "limited time".

The online launch of the new Nexus 7 in Australia comes almost two months after Google officially unveiled the device globally.

While it retains the same name as its predecessor, the new 7in tablet features a slightly different design and has a host of upgraded specifications, headed by a full HD display.

The tablet is also 2mm thinner than its predecessor (8.65mm), weighs 50g lighter (290g) and includes a 5-megapixel rear-camera, a feature that wasn't present on the original model.

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.

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.
