The telco will sell all four models of the iPad Air on a selection of four plans from today, with the ability to choose between 12 or 24 month contracts.

Plans range from an entry level 1GB per month option, to a top plan which offers 10GB per data.

The 16GB iPad Air starts at $50 per month for 1GB of data (a total of $1200 over 24 months), while the top of the range 128GB iPad Air paired with Optus' largest 10GB plan will cost a hefty $101 per month (a total of $2424 over 24 months).

On a 12 month plan, those prices jump to $80 (a total of $960) and $142 (a total of $1742), respectively.

Unlike Telstra, Optus will not sell the iPad Air outright through its stores. Instead, the telco offers the device on month-to-month plans with no contract. It will charge an up front device payment in the first month, depending on the plan selected.

The iPad Air officially went on sale in Australia today and is also sold by Telstra and Vodafone on contract plans.

Optus' full pricing for the new iPad Air can be viewed on its Web site.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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

Windows 10 / 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.
