Toshiba has become the first major television manufacturer to release small-screen LCD TVs with integrated DVD players in Australia: the DV615Y series of televisions. The series includes 19in, 22in and 26in models.

Until now, only smaller manufacturers like Teac and Soniq have released TVs with integrated DVD players.

The new Toshiba TVs are energy efficient, with the 19in model gaining the maximum six star MEPS rating. The 22in and 26in models have 5.5 and five star ratings, respectively.

Unlike many cheaper combo LCD TV/DVD units from companies such as Teac, Toshiba uses 16:9 widescreen panels in its combo televisions, with an HD resolution of 1366x768 (16:10 panels stretch DVD video content to fit their screens).

The DV615Y TVs come with two-year warranties. The 19in 19DV615Y has an RRP of $849, while the 22in 22DV615Y and 26in 26DV615Y retail for $949 and $1049, respectively. The TVs are available in-store now.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.
