After conceding a month to Xbox 360 in September, Nintendo's plucky Wii regains the top spot as the most widely purchased console in America.

According to NPD, which tracks monthly U.S. video game sales, Wii sold 520,000 units in the month of October followed closely by the DS with 460,000 units sold.

Microsoft dropped to the third spot with 370,000 units sold during the same period with Sony rounding out the bottom three systems: PSP sales of 290,000 units, PS2 sales of 180,000, and PS3 sales of 120,000 (before November's price cut).

Halo 3 remained the top selling game for the second consecutive month, followed by Guitar Hero III on 360, Wii, and PS2 in that order, and Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for DS.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
