The telco will sell 16GB and 128GB versions of the the iPad Air on a selection of three 24 month contract plans from Friday, 1 November.

Unlike Telstra, which ranges every iPad model available, Vodafone will not sell 32GB or 64GB models of the iPad Air.

Vodafone plans include 2.5GB ($20 per month), 4GB ($30) and 8GB ($45) options, with the total monthly cost varying depending on which iPad model is chosen.

The 16GB iPad Air starts at $49 per month on Vodafone's 2.5GB plan (a total of $1176 over 24 months), while the top of the range 128GB iPad Air paired with the 8GB plan will cost $83 per month (a total of $1992 over 24 months).

Vodafone will open online sales for the iPad Air from 8.00am on Friday, 1 November, while Vodafone retail stores across Australia will sell the tablet on Friday, depending on local store opening times.

While Vodafone has also announced pricing for the Apple iPad mini with Retina display, it won't sell the device until "later in November".

The 16GB iPad mini with Retina is the only model of the tablet that Vodafone will sell in Australia. It starts at $45 per month on the 2.5GB ($20 per month) (a total of $1080 over 24 months), or $67 per month on Vodafone's 8GB plan (a total of $1608 over 24 months).

Telstra has already announced its pricing for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display, while Optus is expected to follow suite in the coming days.

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.
