Australia Day Comp Winners

After an incredible response, our Australia Day competition has now been drawn. We had a huge number of entries ranging from ridiculous to incredible, funny and elaborate as well as simple three word responses like "chuckin' a sickie".

However, there were only five prizes and as such there are five very lucky winners. Judging the competition was very difficult and we truly wish we had more prizes to hand out but these five eventually came out on top.

Congratulations are extended to:

First Prize: Sharp Aquos 32" LCD TV and DVD Player - N. Harvey - S.A.

"I'm flying to Nigeria to collect my $47 million dollars."

Second Prize: Navman Pin570 GPS unit - K. Hansen - N.S.W.

"I set half the clocks in my house ahead one hour and the rest back one hour and have spent 18 hours in a space-time continuum loop. I was able to exit the loop only by reversing the polarity of the flux capacitor. Accordingly I will be in late."

Third Prize: Cowon iAudio A2 - A. Austin - N.S.W.

"Dear David I come from a line of wizards of the dark-arts. According to prophecy a zombie horde will invade on 27/1/06. I will not be able to attend jeans and shirt day as I will be saving humanity. If I am successful I'll be back in Monday."

Forth Prize: GameBoy micro and two games - J. Elphick - N.S.W.

"My feng shui expert has advised that unless a water feature is placed in my hallway to activate my Chi I will be unable to find the energy to come to work this Friday."

Fifth Prize: Philips A330 PC Speakers - J. Kaye - N.S.W.

"Terrorists slashed my tyres."

Those that unfortunately didn't win this time around don't be disheartened. There will be plenty more competitions on the site in the near future. We appreciated your entries and thank everyone who entered for making this one of the most successful competitions we have ever run.

Very special thanks are also extended to the vendors, whose kind contributions made the competition possible.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
