Telstra will sell all three models of iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G connectivity — 16GB, 32GB and 64GB — on a range of two-year plans and also on a range of pre-paid plans. The telco will not offer the iPad 2 on shorter, 12 month plans.

"With Australians adopting mobile tablets in record numbers, Telstra is delighted to make the iPad 2 available to purchase from select Telstra Stores around Australia," said Anthea Roberts, Telstra's director of mobile broadband.

"Our customers will be able to buy iPad 2 on a plan that includes no upfront fee, a generous monthly data allowance and which allows them to pay the device off over 24 months. Customers will also be able to purchase iPad 2 outright and team it with one of our popular iPad Pre-Paid options that allows them to top up data as they need."

Telstra will sell the iPad 2 on four 24 month contract plans, with monthly pricing varying between models. The 16GB iPad 2 will be available for $0 up front on $49, $59, $69 and $99 plans that include 1GB, 4GB, 8GB and 15GB of data per month, respectively.

Jumping up to the 32GB iPad 2 retains the $0 upfront costs but slightly increases the monthly plan costs: $54, $64, $74 and $104 per month with the same data allocations.

Finally, the 64GB iPad 2 through Telstra introduces an upfront cost in addition to increasing the monthly plan costs. A $24 upfront payment is required on all four plans with this model: $57, $67, $77 and $107 per month, once again with the same data allocations.

Telstra will sell the iPad 2 at "selected" Telstra shops and through all Telstra Business Centres, over the phone on on Telstra's online shop from next Tuesday.

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!

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 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.
