Telstra Corporation Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi

Telstra has finally jumped on the portable Wi-Fi modem bandwagon, letting up to five devices simultaneously enjoy the Next G network's wide coverage and fast speeds. The Telstra Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi modem gets hot during use and could have better battery life, but it remains a good solution if you're after some flexibility from your mobile broadband device.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
