goes to Perth

The roaming Linux conference folks are at it again - and this time they're taking the show to Australia's west coast.

For the first time in its three-year history, the 2003 Australian National Linux Technical Conference, otherwise known as, will take place in Perth. The event is scheduled to take run from 22 to 25 January 2003 at the University of Western Australia and will be run jointly by Linux Australia and the Perth Linux Users Group (PLUG).

Ongoing conference supporter IBM will again be the Penguin sponsor of the event, alongside Linux Services WA and NT, the event's major sponsor.

PLUG has confirmed that several internationally celebrated Linux gurus will be speaking at the event, including H. Peter Anvin, a SYSLINUX and autofs author, and Alan Cox, a Welshman whom conference organisers affectionately term "kernel hacker". organisers say they have also received several submissions from Linux enthusiasts who are willing to present sessions or tutorials at the forthcoming event. The closing date for submissions is today -- 15 July. More information on the call for papers is available at:

The 2001 annual Linux conference was held in Brisbane, between 6 and 9 February. Around 300 delegates attended the Brisbane event. Conference organisers say they anticipate a similar attendance in 2003, with a larger proportion of international visitors.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
