According to the Google Australia blog the service will initially only be available to some users, but should be rolled out to any logged-in Google account in Australia by the end of the week. The main use for +1 will be on Google's organic search results, but Web sites are also able to integrate +1 buttons — the Google Australia blog says sites like Kogan and the Trading Post will have +1 buttons on their sites soon. The Kogan Web page for the Agora 12in Chromium OS-powered laptop already features a +1 button.

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.

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.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

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.
