Amazon round out local roster with Echo Show 8

Credit: Amazon

Amazon has announced Australian availability for the Amazon Echo Show 8.

Essentially, this new smart speaker is a slight upgrade on the previous Echo Show 5. It features a 8-inch HD display, a 1-megapixel camera with built-in camera shutter and a beefier set of 2-inch speakers. 

In terms of size it fits neatly between the aforementioned Echo Show 5 and the 10-inch Echo Show. Otherwise, you’re getting very much the same experience in terms of smart home integrations and hands-free functionality via the on-board Amazon Alexa smart assistant.

All up, the Echo Show 8 is about $100 more expensive than the Echo Show 5 but, for that premium, you do a bigger screen and better sound output. 

Better still, Amazon are actually running a preorder promotion that actually cuts the price of the Echo Show 8 down from AU$229 to AU$114 until the 25th of February - which is a pretty steep discount.  You can take advantage over this deal while it lasts by Clicking here.

The Amazon Echo Show 8 officially launches in Australia on February 26th at an RRP of AU$229.

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.

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.
