Microsoft has released a slew of details and promotions as the November 12 opening of its flagship store at Westfield Sydney, on Pitt Street Mall, draws closer. There's a first-look artist's render, news of an exclusive Jessie J concert for the first customers to visit the store and $US2 million in software and technology grants to honour the great work of several not-for-profit community groups making a difference in Sydney, and across Australia.

The company said in a statement that its mission is to help people achieve more in their lives. With each store opening, Microsoft aims to deliver a positive impact on the communities in which it operates by providing access to technology as well as promoting STEM learning and youth education - hence the grants.

It also announced a number of complimentary workshops and seminars, will be open to members of the community on level 2 of the store in the weeks that follow the grand opening.

These events will include a digital workshop for girls aged 14-18 to introduce them to the world of possibility with coding and potential career paths, a creative coding academy aimed at secondary school students during school holidays and a seminar aimed at parents to equip them with the knowledge they need when it comes to online security and safety for children.

To mark Microsoft’s commitment to the community on launch day, the first 750 customers who visit the store will receive two complimentary tickets to the community concert featuring international artist, Jessie J, who will be supported by The Voice Australia 2015 winner, Ellie Drennan . It will be held at 7pm that day at the State Theatre, on Market St, Sydney.

Grand opening festivities, which will commence at 11.30am, will also include giveaways, unique offers on Surface, a wide selection of Xbox One console bundles as well as the opportunity to experience new innovations with the official launch of Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.

Customers are invited to line up as early as Wednesday, November 11 at 10pm at the entry to Westfield Sydney on Pitt Street Mall. Details about the event are available on the Facebook page and www.microsoftstore.com/Sydney

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.

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

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.

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.
