The much-anticipated Nintendo 3DS has gone on sale in Australia, with a midnight launch held at EB Games stores in Australian state capitals. The Nintendo 3DS is the latest version of Nintendo's handheld touchscreen device, which started with the original Nintendo DS in early 2005.

Read our preview of the Nintendo 3DS.

Look through our comparison of the Nintendo 3DS and Sony NGP (PSP 2).

Nintendo found more mainstream adoption with the improved Nintendo DS Lite in 2006, with further upgrades coming in the form of the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL. The Nintendo 3DS uses a lenticular 3D screen that simulates a 3D effect without the use of 3D glasses like those seen on 3D TVs.

The Nintendo 3DS can be purchased nationwide for $348, although many retailers are offering discounts or bundling free games during the console's Australian launch period.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
