A Melbournestar is born

The site offers links to over 3000 Melbourne-related sites, including car and bus rental, public transport, accommodation, animal rights organisations, real estate, and water polo clubs. Users also have access to a free auction site to buy and sell goods online.

"Melbournestar will never replace Yahoo or Excite as a web service but it is an alternative when the internet user looks for local sites. Yahoo and Excite don't really cater for local users in Melbourne," Kaiser said.

Melbournestar's goal is to be one of the top 500 Australian websites at the end of this year's third quarter. To achieve this, Melbournestar will next month start marketing programs with Melbourne businesses and organisations to increase traffic, according to Kaiser.

Sydneystar and Brisbanestar are currently in the development stage, and will be launched in the third quarter.

Interstar, the company behind Melbournestar, has registered the domain names of 150 star sites worldwide and is planning to launch internationally in 2001.

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.

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.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
