Grand opening celebrations for Microsoft’s Pitt Street store in Sydney will take place at mid-day on 12 November.

The 500 square metre store will be located on levels two and three of Westfield Sydney, placing it on the same block as the Samsung Experience store and in close proximity to the Apple Store on George Street.

The majority of the floorspace is dedicated to selling products that belonging to Microsoft’s ecosystem, including the exclusive sale of Signature Edition PCs.

However, an on-site answer desk will provide existing customers with product support, such as virus removal from Windows computers and help with software installation.

Approximately 50 to 75 people will staff the store, including a small business specialist and an on-site trainer. The diverse staff are from 11 different countries and are versed in more than 21 languages.

The launch of the Pitt Street, Sydney store, which is the first to be opened outside of North America, follows the opening of a store in New York. Microsoft is celebrating the launch by donating more than $5 million in software and technology grants to local organisations in Sydney and New York.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
