Kogan is king when it comes to ridiculously cheap technology. $55 camcorders, $139 televisions, and now one of the cheapest Windows 8.1 non-netbook notebooks in Australia — and it even has a not-terrible Full HD display. This is how much laptop you get from Kogan for a whopping $359.


Asus ZenBook UX305: Australian Review

A simple, beautiful, seamless design. An incredibly thin chassis, crafted from metal and finished in a high quality dark grey paint.

The P35 is Gigabyte’s mainstream performance laptop, but the use of Nvidia’s powerful standalone GTX 970M graphics chip means it’s a great choice for gaming at the same time.


HP Spectre x360 Review: My New Favourite Backflipping Windows Laptop

“Oooh, what’s that?” It’s the reaction I get every time I pull out the new HP Spectre x360 in a coffee shop. It hasn’t failed yet.
