JB Hi-Fi three hour sale cuts prices on Apple Macs, TVs and cameras

Ten per cent price cuts on Apple Macs, fifteen per cent on cameras just a few savings on offer

Apple laptop and desktop computers, digital cameras and TVs are just a few of the products attracting significant savings at a three-hour-long JB Hi-Fi Friends and Family sale being held at the retailer's stores tonight.

Despite its "exclusive invitation" status and Friends and Family moniker, the sale is open to the public — it is prominently displayed on JB Hi-Fi's Web site front page and has its own dedicated sub-site.

JB Hi-Fi generally has reasonably low prices on its stock — although diligent buyers can often find cheaper prices by hunting online and buying from overseas sources — and the Friends and Family sale adds further savings off Australia's high consumer electronics recommended retail prices.

Apple's iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini attract 10 per cent discounts off their recommended retail prices, but iPads remain at full price. Apple products are generally hard to find with significant discounts due to Apple's strict enforcement of price parity between retailers.

All other desktop PCs and notebooks in stock at JB Hi-Fi are discounted by 15 per cent. Similarly, all digital cameras are discounted by 15 per cent.

Car entertainment products are 30 per cent cheaper, although GPS devices are only discounted by 20 per cent. Home theatre receivers and speakers also attract a 20 per cent discount, as do all CDs, DVDs and games.

TVs attract the smallest discount with all panels (excluding the retailer's budget Soniq and Okano brand lines) discounted by 10 per cent.

The sale is in effect at all JB Hi-Fi stores nationwide from 6PM-9PM (local times), with select stores remaining open until 10PM. Stores will temporarily close at 5:30PM to stock up for the sales.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
