Back-to-school guide: Prepaid mobile broadband

Heading back to school or university? A mobile broadband package may help you get off to a good start in 2010!

Virgin Mobile prepaid mobile broadband


Price: $89

Virgin Mobile uses the Optus network, so in most cases you'll get similar network performance. The current special involves a USB modem and 1GB of data for $89, provided you activate before 31 January (otherwise you'll get the standard 500MB). Unlike Optus, Virgin mobile doesn't count data in 10MB increments and offers various recharge options including $15 (500MB) and $30 (1GB) recharges lasting 30 days, a $50 (3GB) recharge lasting 60 days, a $100 (6GB) recharge lasting 90 days and a $149 (10GB) recharge lasting a full year.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
