Need a cheap phone or SIM on short notice? Optus' Amazon offering is 40% off

Optus are offering up to 40% savings on their Uni Essentials range, which includes selected Oppo smartphones and prepaid SIM kits.

For example, the Oppo AX5s is 19% off - which brings the price down to AU$153. That's not too shabby a discount for a device that originally launched in 2019 at an RRP of AU$299.

In our review of the Oppo AX5s, we said that "Sure, the AX5s has cut a few corners., it does share many of the same weaknesses with its predecessor. But when you factor in the exceptional battery life, improved processor and updated design, it’s hard not to dig what Oppo are selling here."

You can also grab a AU$30 prepaid voice starter kit for AU$15 rather than the usual AU$25 here.

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.

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

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

Jack Jeffries


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.

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

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.
