PCs are great, but often they feel like they're made for another species besides humanity. Each additional cord you plug in adds a new cord for you to manage and untangle. They're customisable, but it's intimidating to open one up and start pulling out its guts. That big ol' display on your desk takes up a lot of counter space.

The initial response to Amazon Australia's launch a couple of weeks ago was mostly disappointment, with a hint of optimism. There weren't a lot of quality deals to be found, but video games and consoles were offered at really competitive prices that made a few people take notice.
