The notebooks can be bought outright or purchased on an interest-free monthly repayment plan. The laptops are bundled with Telstra's casual, member data packs or shared data mobile broadband plans.

The Acer Aspire One A0531 10in netbook is offered on a $19 member data pack, plus monthly repayments starting from $28.29 per month over 24 months. The minimum total cost is $1134.96 plus any excess data usage charges.
