Optus is sweetening online pre-orders for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL with an Xbox giveaway.

The first 300 existing Optus customers to preorder the Lumia 950 and 950 XL online will receive an Xbox One console valued at $499. It will have a 1TB hard drive and come with FIFA 16.

The Singtel-owned carrier is alone in offering Microsoft’s Windows 10 mobiles on postpaid contracts, as reported earlier by PCWorld. Vodafone will not offer the smartphones and Telstra has yet to comment.

Both smartphones are being offered on Optus’ $80 My Plan over 24 month contracts. The 5.2-inch Lumia 950 is free over the life of the contract, while the 5.7-inch 950 XL is an additional $4 per month.

Bonus data is available to customers who pre-order the smartphones on the Optus $80 My Plan, pushing the quota up from 6GB to 8GB per month.

Online pre-orders for the two smartphones open today, 30 November, while the smartphones will be available in stores on 7 December.

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.
