(Image credit: Future)

June in Australia is one of the best times of the year to score yourself some tech on a decent discount. In the lead up to the beginning of the new financial year in July, retailers often put up sales on tech you might need for work in order to entice you to add an extra gizmo to your annual taxable expenditures… And really, why wouldn’t you? 

A 10- 20% discount on essential tech like phones and laptops, plus whatever you’ll get as a tax deduction can make a big difference to the cost of the latest tech. So instead of feeling guilty about dropping some dough, you can tell yourself (or your boss) just how much you saved the company by getting your essential gadgets at tax time.  

This T3 guide to the best EOFY sales will help you find some of the best deals around on tax time tech.

The new edition features a decent bump in power that means the Surface Laptop 3 can hold it's own with most people's workloads.
