Motorola MOTOSURF A3100

Motorola's MOTOSURF A3100 is a Windows Mobile smartphone that is surprisingly intuitive to use. The screen is poor when compared to other phones and text entry will frustrate, but the TelstraOne Experience and Moto Homescreen skins make this a pleasant experience on the whole. Exclusive to Telstra, the MOTOSURF A3100 features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3-megapixel camera with flash, and has the A2DP Bluetooth profile for wireless audio streaming.

Hot deal: Telstra offers the Motorola MOTOSURF A3100 smartphone for $0 on a $60 phone plan over 24 months. A special online offer allows purchasers to receive $50 free credit with this deal, and Telstra also bundles a bonus MOTOSURF A3100 Premium Accessory Pack valued at $149.95 — the pack includes a Motorola H780 Bluetooth headset, a car charger and two styluses.

Samsung F480T

Samsung's F480T is a mid-range touch-screen phone that uses widgets and a customisable drag-and-drop interface. The F480T is attractive and comfortable to hold and its glossy, mirror-style finish certainly impresses. Text messaging is surprisingly efficient, and this phone packs in plenty of features as well, including full access to the Next G range of content and services (Mobile FOXTEL, BigPond TV and WhereIs Mobile amongst them), a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, an FM radio with RDS support and a music player.

Hot deal: The Samsung F480T can be purchased for $0 on a $40 phone plan over 24 months from Telstra. A special online offer allows purchasers to receive $50 free credit with this deal.

Sony Ericsson C510

A feature-packed yet affordable 3G mobile phone, Sony Ericsson's C510 Cyber-shot boasts a 3.2-megapixel camera with sliding lens cover, a dual-LED flash and HSDPA connectivity. Although it doesn't wow with exciting new features, the C510 is great value for money.

Hot deal: You can grab yourself a bargain and get your hands on the C510 with Telstra for $0 on a $40 plan over 24 months. Once again, Telstra offers online customers $50 free credit with this deal.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
