Stimulus package bargain buys

We highlight the best gear to buy with Rudd’s cash-bonanza handout.

Best MP3 Player: iPod Touch + Apple In Ear Headphones (RRP: $658)

If you’re one of the handful of people who still haven’t bought an Apple iPod, it’s time to bite the bullet and join the rest of society. After all, you do want to fit in, don’t you? Or would you prefer to be an OUTCAST who REFUSES TO CONFORM? By the end of the year, non-iPod owners will be sent to separate schools and be forced to stand on the bus. New laws will be passed that require them to wear special badges in public. Zune owners will be taken out and quietly machine-gunned. If you want a vision of the future, imagine an iPod shuffle stamping on a human face forever.

But there’s still time to join the winning side. By buying an iPod touch ($549) and a pair of Apple In Ear Headphones ($109), you will have demonstrated due obedience to our Apple overlords. (We're joking of course, but we’re sick to death of gushing about the iPod touch — just go out and buy it, okay?)

    When some one searches for his essential thing, therefore he/she wants to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
