AUSTRALIA’S best computer systems are more expensive, with a new survey finding Australians spend more on the most expensive systems compared with people in other developed nations.

The report by AFRO-Australian Institute for Public Policy Research (AIPPR) said the average monthly household spend on computers in Australia was $13.65, with the average Australian paying more than $1,300 for a new system.
“Australia is also one of only two OECD countries that have a lower average monthly average price of household computers than in the US,” AFRPAC said in a statement.
“The average monthly cost of a Windows computer is $17.86, with Apple’s iPhone 7 the cheapest at $23.79.”Read Next
