"With these new bundles, and our new mobile broadband plans, we are working hard to help Australian small businesses get more from their technology," said Telstra Business Group Managing Director Deena Shiff. "These all-in-one business laptops provide a simple way for small business to equip their business for mobile working while avoiding large upfront costs and maintaining their cash flow."

The notebooks can be bought outright or purchased on an interest-free monthly repayment plan. The laptops are bundled with Telstra's casual, member data packs or shared data mobile broadband plans.

The Acer Aspire One A0531 10in netbook is offered on a $19 member data pack, plus monthly repayments starting from $28.29 per month over 24 months. The minimum total cost is $1134.96 plus any excess data usage charges.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
