The Kogan Agora Pro Netbook is now even cheaper.

Kogan Technologies today announced that it has slashed the price of its Agora Netbook range. The 10.2in Agora Netbook Pro was originally $539, but is now available for $439 — a saving of $100. The Agora Netbook, which was previously $499, is now available for $399.

The Kogan Agora Pro comes with 2GB of RAM and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, as well as 802.11g networking, a Bluetooth USB module, a 160GB hard drive and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The standard Agora model has 1GB of RAM, a 3-cell battery (instead of the Pro’s 6-cell battery) and doesn't include the USB-based Bluetooth module.

Both Agora models use the gOS operating system, an open source platform that comes with preinstalled applications. "We are huge believers in open-source software. The reasons are simple, open source software is usually faster, better and has more features,” said Ruslan Kogan, founder of Kogan Technologies.

The Kogan Agora and Agora Pro netbooks can only be purchased directly through Kogan Technologies. For more information, visit the Kogan Web site.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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!

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.
