Nintendo Wii in the black (literally)

Nintendo's popular console now comes in a new colour

From 11 March, Australian gamers will be able to get their hands on the latest guise of the Nintendo Wii. Imaginatively dubbed 'Black Wii', the new version of the popular console is finished in a sleek black colour -- much like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Elite.

Retailing for $399.95, the Black Wii will come bundled with a black Wii Remote, a black Nunchuk and the game Wii Sports. Personally, we think Nintendo should have gone with a grittier game to match the sinister noir aesthetic. (Although convincing your mum to buy a Manhunt 2/MadWorld bundle would probably be a bit tricky.)

On the plus side, the Black Wii is sure to fit in with the rest of your home entertainment system, instead of standing out like a ghostly, pallid thumb. Black Wii Remotes can also be purchased separately for $69.95 a pop.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
