While I wouldn't rule out some kind of PS3 deal down the road, Microsoft has the jump on its competition with its announcement of a Final Fantasy XIII special edition bundle for the Xbox 360. The bundle comes engraved with the title of the game and ships with a whopping 250GB hard drive, two wireless controllers, a downloadable avatar item (for your Xbox 360 likeness), and of course a copy of Final Fantasy XIII itself.

Expect the bundle to retail for US$399.

Calling it "an amazing value," Square Enix's press release notes the Xbox 360 will be the only console outside of Japan to come bundled with the game. In September last year, Sony announced a 250GB PS3 bundle, which shipped when Final Fantasy XIII launched in Japan on December 17th.

If that's not enough for you, series character designer Tetsuya Nomura has apparently created a Final Fantasy XIII faceplate that Square Enix says it will sell "promotionally in very limited numbers." It'll also be limited to North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

You can pre-order the bundle now, and it'll ship on March 9, 2010 with the game, "while supplies last."

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.
