An enthusiastic young fan gets his first taste of the iPad in Australia.

Apple opened a new retail store in Bondi Junction and launched its new iPad tablet in Australia this morning.

Amid a queue of hundreds of eager customers and typically enthusiastic Apple retail staff, the Bondi Junction store opened its doors for the first time this morning at 8am.

The most popular item was Apple's new iPad tablet, which made its debut in Australia today. A new category of device that will sit in between a smartphone and a notebook computer, the iPad is designed for watching videos, viewing photos, reading books and browsing the Internet.

The single-floor Bondi Junction Apple Store is much smaller than the three-floor store in George Street, Sydney, but still has two Genius Bars for personalised service and feels more spaced out. The new store sells the full range of Apple products including iPhones, iPods, MacBooks and a range of software and accessories.

In a strange but typically Apple touch, the Bondi Store has four fig trees growing inside an atrium-style rear section, complete with see-through roof and bright lighting. Check out our video of the store opening below!

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

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.)

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!
