Intel's AppUp store adds support for Australian users

Aussie users can buy apps off Intel's new netbook storefront

Intel's AppUp store now allows Australian users to purchase applications. The AppUp application store for netbooks was launched to the public last week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, but Australian users were restricted to downloading only free applications.

The store now allows Australian users to purchase applications once they add their payment information via the AppUp Centre Web page. Registered users can get to the payment information page simply by clicking on the link that appears in a pop-up screen when they start the steps to purchase an application.

Currently the most popular downloaded applications on AppUp are all free. Prices for paid applications start from 99 cents (US) and can cost over $100 for advanced applications (such as this audio sequencer called GURU). Unfortunately, there isn't a try before you buy option for the applications.

The applications are designed for netbooks and will run at a resolution of 1024x600. Applications downloaded from the store will work on any computer that uses the Intel Architecture as well as the Windows 7 or MeeGo operating systems. While you'll be able to run applications from AppUp on a Core i7 notebook, the applications will be optimised for Intel Atom devices.

Users running MeeGo are not left out. Netbooks and tablets running this Linux-based operating system can use the Moblin link on the AppUp Web site to download the AppUp storefront on their device. You can also run the applications on a Windows 7-based notebook, but they will only be able to run them in windowed mode.

To download applications, users must first install the Intel AppUp application. Once applications are downloaded, they can either be launched through this application or via a desktop shortcut. The AppUp application gives users a list of recently installed applications and also shows if updates are available for them.

Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.

MSI P65

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

MSI GT76

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

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

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.

MSI PS63

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

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.
