The Xperia Z will be available on a selection of seven Optus contract plans over 24 months.

Optus confirmed that existing customers who re-contract with the Xperia Z before the end of April will avoid paying the $3 per month handset repayments on the $60 plan, a saving of $72 over the life of the two year contract.

The Xperia Z is also available on Optus' $30, $50 and $80 plans as well as the $100 and $130 'Timeless' plans, with handset repayments depending on the plan selected.

Optus will only sell the black variant of the Xperia Z, with the white and purple models exclusively available through rival Telstra.

Optus confirmed the Xperia Z is available today through its online store, telesales and "selected" Optus stores and retail partners.

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.

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.
