It’s refreshing to see that buying an iPhone on plan can be cheaper than buying outright – it’s usually much more expensive to do so. But now you can get an iPhone 7 Plus for $600 on a $65 Optus plan: that’s less than Huawei’s pocket rocket P9 and phabulous Mate 8.

Those plans aren’t the cheapest overall, though. The $40 plans from Optus and Virgin give you an iPhone 7 Plus for $1800 and $1752 (across two years) respectively although you only get 1GB of data.

However, in terms of overall value, if you can afford the $1,269 up front for the device, then it’s well worth buying one outright and choosing the $40 BYO plans which give you 7-8GB for a two-year total spend of $2,229. Telstra, Optus and Vodafone will start you off on a one-year contract but Virgin has no contract. This value proposition is in line with the iPhone 7 but as with that phone, you may then be tempted in to splurging for the 128GB model which costs $150 more over two years.

As usual, if you want to move from 32GB to 128GB, you're looking at a $150 price increase spread across two years ($6.25 per month).

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

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.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

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

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
