Optus will sell all three models of iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G connectivity — 16GB, 32GB and 64GB — on a range of two-year plans. Unlike Vodafone, Optus will not offer the iPad 2 on shorter, 12 month plans.

"By offering the iPad 2 on the Optus Open Network, we are giving Australians more reason than ever before to choose Optus this Christmas," said Optus' consumer marketing director, Gavin Williams. "Our great range of value plans, along with greater rewards such as our partnership with Qantas Frequent Flyer, give customers the freedom to enjoy all the game changing features the revolutionary iPad 2 has to offer."

Optus will sell the 16GB iPad 2 for $0 up front on $49 Optus tablet plan which includes 4GB of data per month. The same plan for the highest-capacity 64GB iPad 2 will cost an extra $10 per month (totalling $59 per month) over 24 months. Optus also offers $19, $29, $39, $59 and $79 tablet plans, with pricing varied depending on which iPad 2 model is purchased.

The iPad 2 is available at "selected Optus retail locations" and online through the Optus Web site.

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.

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.

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

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.
