The Sony Tablet S will be available to purchase online at Sony's Web site , at Sony Centre stores and "selected Australian retailers" from tomorrow. It will cost $579 for the 16GB model and $689 for the 32GB version. Both models of the Tablet S are Wi-Fi only tablets — 3G models of the Sony Tablet S will not be sold in Australia until early 2012.

The Sony Tablet S has a curved design that attempts to resemble a folded magazine and its shaped like a wedge. The upper portion of the tablet is thicker than the lower portion, which is an attempt to make it easier to hold and easier to view when sitting on a desk. Sony says the physical attributes of the Tablet S make it stable and light and therefore comfortable to use for an extended period of time. It weighs 598g.

The Sony Tablet S has front and rear-facing cameras, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, and is PlayStation certified, meaning it will be compatible with PlayStation games available through the Android Market. Sony will pre-load Australian models of the Tablet S with Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes games.

The Sony Tablet S is powered by a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM and also comes with an SD card slot and a USB port.

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.

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.
