The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is available for pre-order from today at Samsung's Experience stores in Sydney and Melbourne. It will sell for $459 outright and be available in "early April".

The 3G version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to be launched at a later date, but Samsung hasn't revealed pricing or a specific availability time frame for that model.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 was officially announced last month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain. It has an 8in screen, includes a Wacom-powered stylus called the 'S Pen' and can make regular voice calls just like a smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 allows users to use the S Pen on the capacitive "hardware" buttons for back and menu, comes preloaded with the Awesome Note app and includes an infrared port that allows it to act as a universal remote control for devices around the home.

The tablet is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos 4 processor, has 2GB of RAM and comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. There's also a microSD card for extra memory expansion, along with a 4600mAh, non-removable battery.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 will initially ship with the 4.1.2 'Jelly Bean' version of Google's Android platform and comes skinned with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.

Consumers can pre-order the Galaxy Note 8.0 at the new Melbourne Samsung Experience Store, Shop 2351 at Highpoint Shopping Centre, Melbourne, and the Sydney Samsung Experience Store at Sydney Central Plaza, 450 George Street, Sydney.

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 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!

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.
