Deal of the day: Dell Streak 7 for $179

The 7in Dell Streak is currently selling on Catch of the Day for $179 plus postage

Australian online deal site Catch of the Day has decided the 7in Dell Streak Android tablet is still worthy of some attention.

The 7in Android tablet, first launched in the US in early 2011, is currently selling on Catch of the Day for $179 plus postage. The Dell Streak 7 previously sold through Optus in Australia on a two year contract plan, or $279 outright. It was launched in Australia in late November 2011.

The Dell Streak 7 was a follow up to the original 5in Dell Streak, which was marketed as a tablet with phone capabilities, but didn't hit any great heights after its release.

The 7in Dell Streak has a 5-megapixel camera that doubles as a video recorder, a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity.

The Streak has 16GB of internal memory, but also includes a microSD card slot for extra storage and has full access to the Google Play Store for third party applications.

The Dell Streak sold through Catch of the Day comes with the 3.2 Honeycomb version of Google's Android operating system, which was initially designed for tablet devices. Due to the age of the device, it won't receive an official update to either 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or 4.1 Jelly Bean versions of the Android platform.

The Streak may be old, but a 7in 3G tablet from a reputable brand is definitely worth a look, especially at this price.

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.

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

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

Jack Jeffries


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


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.
