Grand opening celebrations for Microsoft’s Pitt Street store in Sydney will take place at mid-day on 12 November.

The 500 square metre store will be located on levels two and three of Westfield Sydney, placing it on the same block as the Samsung Experience store and in close proximity to the Apple Store on George Street.

The majority of the floorspace is dedicated to selling products that belonging to Microsoft’s ecosystem, including the exclusive sale of Signature Edition PCs.

However, an on-site answer desk will provide existing customers with product support, such as virus removal from Windows computers and help with software installation.

Approximately 50 to 75 people will staff the store, including a small business specialist and an on-site trainer. The diverse staff are from 11 different countries and are versed in more than 21 languages.

The launch of the Pitt Street, Sydney store, which is the first to be opened outside of North America, follows the opening of a store in New York. Microsoft is celebrating the launch by donating more than $5 million in software and technology grants to local organisations in Sydney and New York.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
