Panasonic revealed its 2010 LCD and plasma televisions today, with new edge-lit LED televisions also available soon. 3D TV pricing was also announced, with a 50in Full HD 3D plasma television available in June for $3299.

Seventeen plasma televisions and 14 LCD/LED TVs were detailed during the launch in Melbourne in a variety of screen sizes, with releases staggered from now until the end of the year. Plasma televisions range from the $999 TH-P42X20A to the $3299 TH-P50VT20A, with prices for larger VT20 series 3D-enabled plasmas yet to be finalised. Panasonic's most expensive LED edge-lit LCD television is its 42in TH-L42D25A at $2499.

The company's VIERA plasma televisions boast significantly lowered power consumption compared to last year's models, with five TVs gaining a five-star energy efficiency rating. Improved networking capabilities and applications were also announced during the launch — Panasonic's high-end VT20 and V20 plasmas as well as D25 LED and S25 LCD televisions include an updated VIERA Cast service that includes access to Yahoo!7's PLUS7 video-on-demand service and Skype video-conferencing.

Panasonic's LCD, LED and plasma televisions will be released throughout the year. The top-end 3D-ready VT20 plasma series' 50in model will be released in June for $3299, but the larger 54in model will only be available in November while 58in and 65in panels are held back until October.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
