Stimulus package bargain buys

We highlight the best gear to buy with Rudd’s cash-bonanza handout.

This month, the Federal Government began rolling out its $42 billion stimulus package to citizens nationwide (along with overseas foreigners and corpses, it says here). For individual tax-payers earning $80,000 or less a year, this equates to 900 clams injected directly into their back account. Not bad, eh?

Rather than putting the money towards bills or mortgages, Kevin Rudd wants us to stimulate the economy — which translates to splurging on big-ticket items like camcorders, notebooks and TVs. Being the helpful bunch that we are, we’ve decided to compile a list of the best gadgets you can bag for $900(ish). To find out what our favourite stimulus-steals are, read on.

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.
