Tacos-for-life for a PlayStation 3

The Taco Bell fastfood chain is offering a "lifetime" of tacos in exchange for a PlayStation 3

People have pushed and shoved for it, queued overnight in the rain for it and its been sold online at great profit. Now the Taco Bell fastfood chain is offering a "lifetime" of tacos in exchange for a PlayStation 3.

The company, which is a division of Yum! Brands, said it will give US$12,500 in "Taco Bell Bucks" to anyone who will donate a PlayStation 3. The console will then be given by Taco Ball and its Taco Bell Foundation to the Stanton, California, teen center of the Boys & Girls Club.

The Taco Bell Bucks can be redeemed at participating Taco Bell locations for food. Just how long it would take to work through the credit depends on your appetite but at less than a dollar for a "seasoned beef crunchy taco" it's enough to keep you snacking for a long time.

Anyone interested in taking up the company's offer should send their name, e-mail address and phone number to tacobellnews@tacobell.com. The Taco Bell Bucks will be given to the first person to respond, based on the time the e-mail is received, and send in their PlayStation 3. The deadline is 6 p.m. on Dec. 1. The company didn't specify which of the two versions of the PlayStation 3 console is preferred.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
