David Rahimi from California was the first person to get the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus at the Apple Sydney Store in George Street.

IT reviewer, David Rahimi, from California, was the first person to get the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus when the doors opened at 8am at Apple's Sydney city store in George St.

A long queue was ready to pounce and ARN's Nermin Bajric and PC World's Tony Ibrahim, were there to capture all the action.

Amidst the queue were people representing some of the 200-plus Australians who hired somebody to stand in line for them ahead of the launch.

The time-challenged Apple fanatics used task outsourcing app, Airtasker, to find somebody willing to pull up some pavement for a lengthy period for a nominated fee.

As of 5pm on Thursday, 215 taskmasters had set an iPhone queue task at an average price of $163.

Rahimi's girlfriend, Jasmine Juan, also bought both phones.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

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.
