Kobo brings the eReader back to beaches, pools and baths

Aura H2O goes on sale in Australia and New Zealand

Two months to the day and Kobo has delivered on its promise to release the Aura H2O in Australia and New Zealand.

The Aura H2O is the world’s first eReader to come with tough credentials. Its IP67 rating certifies it against both dust and water a metre deep for thirty minutes.

Most of the specifications found in the H2O have trickled down from its Aura HD predecessor, such as its 1430x1080 resolution display, two-month battery life and 1GHz CPU. Water- and dust-proofing makes it possible to take the competent eReader to beaches or baths.

The Aura H2O earned praise in <i>Good Gear Guide’s</i> review.

Australians can purchase the eReader for $229 from stockists including JB Hi-Fi, Angus and Robertson, Bookworld and Myer in Australia.

New Zealanders will be able to buy the Aura H2O from Noel Leemings and JB Hi-Fi for $299.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
