OnePlus One pre-orders go live this week

Buyer beware: There is a catch when it comes to OnePlus' pre-sale system

The elusive OnePlus One smartphone will finally go on sale to the public with pre-orders opening this week.

The OnePlus One is a rare breed of smartphone. Its spec sheet can go toe-to-toe with anything from Samsung, Apple and HTC, and yet the One sells for $US299.

Letting this too-good-to-be-true offer down was the availability of the smartphone. A controversial invitation only system was put in place as the company tried to reign in demand.

OnePlus now is opening presales of the One as the hype surrounding the smartphone begins to settle. Presales will open to the public at 3PM GMT on 27 October. Keen Australians will have to wake up at 2AM on 28 October if they want the chance to buy a OnePlus One.

There is a catch: presales will only be open for 1 hour. It's best to jump online and ready your order ahead of pre-sales kicking off.

Update, 22 Oct: OnePlus won't ship the One directly to Australia. <i>GGG</i> has investigated ways around this though, which you can read about by clicking here.

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.

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.
