I just price matched at OW on the good guys price for the mini 128gb which is $2 cheaper at $1177. Total came to $1118.15

While I'm not opposed to going wireless, our house would use at least 200-300gb in streaming alone. We've got fttp and it seems crazy to...

sorry, I don't get the reference to telstra?
31/03/2021 - 21:52

I can't recall the exact day, it was mid week though. FTTP. They also ballsed it up and my new service on the 2nd port without taking...

funny thing is, it would probably annoy me far less if the prices weren't time discounted at all, and were just the full rate! Even though...

You calling me lazy!? Well ok, you got me... Looks like I'm signing up and putting the reminder in the calendar for 5 months...

I had a bad experience last time I changed providers and didn't have internet for a couple of days which has made me gun-shy about...
31/03/2021 - 15:05
Yeah makes sense, thanks!
31/03/2021 - 15:02
thanks, I had realised they were directly related to nbn co offers.
31/03/2021 - 15:01
I'm genuinely happy for your happiness. I should probably just go mediate and let it all go...
31/03/2021 - 14:30
Not much to say really, just a bit of a rant. I was hunting around to see if I could get a better nbn plan, and I started to get my hopes...

Agreed. If this was $650 I wouldn't hesitate. It does have the touch screen though, which is hard to find in this price range.

Looking for a student laptop and this came up. Could do with a bigger SSD, but it should be enough for basic school work. Processor: AMD...

You can get the lower spec'd 4600u for $1049 as well:...

That account fee alone is worth about 0.1% on a 400k loan.

Looks like you're gonna have to be patient: "Ships in more than 8 weeks"

Just a shame there isn't a budget version at 14"

In case anyone was curious, they called back the next day and gave me the 2.19% variable rate.
01/11/2020 - 10:45
Just coming off a fixed term and the variable rate they are quoting 2.77%. About to call and start haggling for the advertised 2.2 rate.

Yeah there's quite a torrent of "meh" Amazon deals. Apologies if I've added to the problem!

I think the Acer is still a clamshell while this can be fully flipped and used in tablet mode.

Nothing amazing, but it's an OK price for a 2-in-1 with this spec. If you can, I'd hold out for one of the [Ryzen...

Would have been perfect if it had a touch screen.

I'm getting it's only free if you have a Nitro subscription ($9.99/mth)? Am I doing something wrong?
