See the Halo Warthog replica at Cockatoo Island next weekend.

This weekend, Microsoft, in conjunction with Bungee Studios, will be hosting a Halo-themed event at Cockatoo Island in preparation for the release of the hotly anticipated Halo 3: ODST. In addition to playing public bouts of Halo 3, attendees will be able to get 'up-close-and-personal' with a life-sized replica of the iconic Halo Warthog assault vehicle.

The full-sized replica of the vehicle will be on display all weekend, complete with a two storey crash-landing set designed by special effects company Weta Workshop. Weta is perhaps most famous for producing the sets, costumes, armour, weapons and creatures for Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The event will be open from 10am-5pm on Saturday, 8 August and Sunday, 9 August. Services to Cockatoo Island depart regularly on both the Balmain/Woolwich service and the Parramatta River service. You can find out more about departure times here: www.sydneyferries.info.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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