Guitar Hero bling: Logitech's US$250 guitar accessory

Guitar is fully licensed by Activision for use with the PS3 and PS2.

If you absolutely have to own everything related to Guitar Hero, then Logitech's US$250 premier edition guitar for Guitar Hero: World Tour could be for you.

The premium accessory, announced Thursday via an Activision press release, won't make anyone a better guitar player by any stretch of the imagination, but it will include metal frets and metal tuning peg handles, a rosewood fingerboard and wood neck, and "rubber dome" technology in the buttons to eliminate noise.

The guitar is fully licensed by Activision for use with the PS3 and PS2 (sorry, everyone else), meaning it will feature a new touch-sensitive neck slider that graces the simpler, all plastic, GH:WT guitars.

This premium piece of Guitar Hero lore is available in December for $250.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
