The upcoming Melbourne Esports Open has added Fortnite to its roster.

“We are very excited to announce that we will be showcasing Fortnite across both days of the Melbourne Esports Open on a dedicated stage in Margaret Court Arena” said Tim McGregor, Managing Director TEG Live.

“For us, this was the final piece of the puzzle in making MEO 2018 a truly epic event for Australian gaming fans of all ages”

From the 1st to the 2nd of September, Fortnite fans will be able to join the action on the dedicated Fortnite Stage in Margaret Court Arena, with activity from the stage being broadcast in front of a live audience and online.

Fans will also have the chance to play alongside popular content creators on stage, with competitive matches running continuously over eight hours on each show day.

Fortnite will also be featured with the “Fortnite Free-Play Field” - an area within the JB Hi-Fi Game On Zone that will offer attendees the chance to get hands-on at one of twenty consoles that will be available for play across the weekend.

Each day, an all-ages dance competition in Margaret Court Arena will give entrants the chance to get up on stage & perform their favourite Fortnite dance, with prizes up for grabs for the best performances.

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


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.
