There’s a few AAA games coming out at the tail end of 2022 that are attracting a lot of hype (opens in new tab), but very few look as damn good as The Callisto Protocol (opens in new tab). Co-creator of the infamous and brilliant Dead Space series Glen Schofield directs this one, and it looks set to tickle the fancy of any existing fan of Schofield’s brand of cosmic horror and all other horror gaming fans.

If you’re looking to purchase the latest MacBook Pro Apple has to offer, the MacBook Pro M2 is currently on sale for 10% off. Our review (opens in new tab) found that longer battery life and silent performance are standout features of the 2022 model, though it does fall short with an underwhelming 720p camera and limited design updates from the previous 13-inch model. The 256GB option (opens in new tab) is also included in this offer for AU$1,797, saving just over AU$200.

Wearables

If you were already in the market for a quality smartwatch to pair with your Android phone, there’s a high likelihood you’re already considering this solid option. Now with this 20% discount, you get your best chance to get its power at a price far friendlier to your pockets. If last week’s discount to the Pro model is any indication, this deal won’t last long so act fast!

PC components & peripherals

AMD Ryzen 7 5700X (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 7 5700X | AU$440 AU$339 (opens in new tab) (save AU$101)

Our colleagues at PC Gamer (opens in new tab) weren’t especially sold on the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X at its original price point, especially as it doesn’t come bundled with a cooler. Though at a 23% discount the appeal changes a little bit, particularly if you’re looking to add to an existing AM4 motherboard where this processor will get its best chance to shine.

Samsung T7 1TB (opens in new tab)

Razer Basilisk X wireless gaming mouse (opens in new tab)

Razer Basilisk X wireless gaming mouse | AU$109.95 AU$49 (opens in new tab) (save AU$60.95)

We found the Basilisk X gaming mouse (opens in new tab) to be a fantastic choice for gamers in our 2020 review thanks to its long-lasting battery and great performance. You’ll need to supply your own AA batteries for this one though, but that just means you should be able to use this wireless mouse for longer as the integrated batteries are normally the first thing to go.

A small price drop from previous weeks, you can currently grab the Apple AirPods Pro (opens in new tab) for 25% off. Back during Amazon Prime Day these earbuds hit a low price of AU$279, and while we hope we’ll see that price again, AU$299 is still a decent price for this pair of wireless earbuds that offer noise cancellation and multiple silicone tips that help provide a secure fit.

Full disclosure, the moment we saw this Mighty Bowser Lego set, we fell in love. Then… that RRP broke our little hearts. This 20% saving, however? Cause for celebration! For a lot of people – us included – the price for this one might remain out of reach, but if you’ve got the cash to spare and are keen to get your hands on one of the best new Lego sets in recent memory this is your best chance yet!

Star Wars The Black Series – Mandalorian Premium Roleplay Helmet (opens in new tab)

Star Wars The Black Series – Mandalorian Premium Roleplay Helmet | AU$269.99 AU$150 (opens in new tab) (save AU$119.99)

If cosplay is your thing, no doubt the Star Wars Black Series helmets have come on to your radar at least once. Even if you don’t especially love dressing up as a hobby and you’re just big Star Wars fans (like us), this recreation of the titular Mandalorian’s helmet from the Disney Plus series is a pretty eye-catching mantel piece to have. This one’s already selling fast ahead of the holiday season, benefiting from a price slash of over 40%.

BLACK+DECKER 18V Lithium-Ion Pivot Dustbuster | AU$129.99 AU$59 (opens in new tab) (save AU$70.99)

If you live in an apartment, a small unit or you’re Harry Potter living in a room under the stairs, it’s likely you don’t have a lot of room to spare for storing a cumbersome vacuum. That doesn’t mean you don’t make a mess though, so what’s your best option? You could do a lot worse than this handheld dustbuster, and that’s even before this whopping 55% discount! You get a lot of power in such a small package with this 18V darling, including Cyclonic action and triple action filtration giving it some extra grunt.

Miele Triflex HX1 3-in-1 | AU$799 AU$509 (opens in new tab) (save AU$290)

While we haven’t reviewed this particular model on TechRadar, we were impressed by the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog (opens in new tab) vacuum. There’s three different configurations in Miele’s first cordless vacuum: one for everyday cleaning, one compact and one for maximum reach. While it’s not its historical low of AU$488, AU$509 is still a decent price for this vacuum.

About Amazon deals in Australia

Amazon might be the world’s largest online marketplace, but its Australian storefront still has meagre offerings compared to other more well-established regions. Yet the Australian inventory is catching up, meaning there’s always a great bargain to be found.

With the Prime service (opens in new tab) now available in Australia, shopping on Amazon can save you plenty. There’s a whole load of perks that come with being a Prime member, including early access to a lot of Lightning Deals as well as the ability to participate in Amazon’s annual members-only Prime Day sales.

Unfortunately, GST being applied to all purchased goods shipped to Australia meant that, for a while, we couldn't import goods from the other Amazon sites, especially from the US storefront. However, the retail giant backflipped on that decision after customers pressured Amazon to reverse the ban.

The 'global store' has now become a great place to find bargains from the US. The advantage here is that import duty is added to the cost of the item and Amazon handles the customs clearance for you.

If you do decide to shop for tech from the global store, keep in mind you may not be covered under Australian warranties and you may – under some circumstances – need to pay shipping costs as well.

Finding the cheapest prices on the tech currently sold on Amazon Australia, however, can be rather time consuming, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help you sift through the chaff and find the best bargains on the hottest products.
